New REE with OS X, 64-bit, Solaris support and GC patches

Posted by David

Phusion is on a roll today. Not only did we just get a new Passenger, they’ve also just dropped a new REE (the Ruby patches for copy-on-write) that includes 64-bit support as well as compatibility with OS X and Solaris. They’ve also fitted the excellent RailsBench patches from Stefan Kaes that allows you to tweak the GC settings in Ruby if you need to.
