A new version of BitNami RubyStack has been released!

This version includes ready to run versions of two popular projects for Rails developers:

  • Git, an open source version control system designed to handle very large projects with speed and efficiency
  • Nginx, a lightweight HTTP and proxy server server (currently only included in OS X and Linux stacks)

    In addition to the above, with this new version you can enjoy new and updated gems, right out of the box, including:

  • thin: is a web server that brings together mongrel parser, event machine and rack.
  • rack: a minimal interface between web servers and Ruby frameworks.
  • eventmachine: a network I/O library with extremely high scalability, performance and stability.
  • god: is a tool that monitors various attributes of running processes and can start/restart/stop them under certain situations.
  • beanstalk-client: A Ruby client library for the Beanstalk protocol.
  • webrat: lets you quickly write robust and thorough acceptance tests for a Ruby web application.

    and many more…
