Version 6.0.10 of the Passenger application server has been released. This release fixes compatibility with the CentOS 7 EPEL nginx package.
Passenger 6 introduced Generic Language Support, or: the ability to support any and all arbitrary apps.
Updates & improvements
[Debian/Ubuntu] Fix a regression in
passenger_system_rubywhere Ruby 3 couldn't be found.
[Nginx] The preferred PCRE version is now 8.45 (previously 8.44).
Updated various library versions used in precompiled binaries (used for e.g. gem installs):
- cmake 3.20.3 → 3.20.5

CentOS/RHEL 7 Packages
Passenger's Nginx module package now depends on the latest EPEL Nginx (was 1.16.1 now 1.20.1). This fixes the GH-2364 issue.
