With T minus 12 days until 2019 starts, we're looking back at a dynamic year.
Before that though, Passenger ran through releases 5.2 to 5.3.7, including several security updates (CVE-2018-12026 - 12029), improving the reliability of binary downloads with a new mirror, adding Ubuntu 18.04 "Bionic" packages, updating language support, and vastly improving the spawning error page with extensive troubleshooting information.
Happy holidays from all of us at Phusion!
At the beginning of the year we launched Fuse Panel to try and dip our toes in the metrics ecosystem. In other experiments, we toyed around with Kubernetes, with a pair-programming setup alternative, and we've been more transparent about what we consider next steps for Passenger (including dropping support for older software distributions, and a potential rewrite of Passenger in Go).
Happy holidays, and looking forward to serve you (pun intended) in 2019!
The Phusion team
