Version 6.0.2 of the Passenger application server has been released. This release contains many community provided patches, and bugfixes which would only have been possible with the diagnostic help of our users. So we'd like to say thank you very much to everyone who contributed! Most notably, this release allows you to disable the prefix added to your app's logs when they are written to Passenger's log.

Passenger 6, introduced Generic Language Support, or: the ability to support any and all arbitrary apps.

Disable app log prefix

Passenger 6.0.2 has a new option to disable prefixing application logs with "App PID stdout".

  • Apache: PassengerDisableLogPrefix
  • Nginx: passenger_disable_log_prefix
  • Standalone: --disable-log-prefix

GH-1915 is now resolved.
