Time for a new release: spawn-fcgi is now going its own ways in an independent project (hence the release slogan; see http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/spawn-fcgi), wsgi applications in / should work now (use the fastcgi/scgi option “fix-root-scriptname”) and many other fixes and improvements.
Please note that the “X-Sendfile-Range” header did not make it into 1.4.23, and we will try a more powerful approach for 1.4.24 (see #2008).

Important changes

  • Fix workaround for incorrect path info/scriptname if fastcgi prefix is “/” (fixes #729)
  • Finally removed spawn-fcgi
  • Fix bug with FastCGI request id overflow under high load; just use always id 1 as we don’t use multiplexing. (thx jgray)
  • Workaround broken operating systems: check for trailing ‘/’ in filenames (fixes #1989)


1.4.22 - Echoes

March 07, 2009

And here we are again… we had some bad regressions, so 1.4.22 was needed earlier than we expected and spawn-fcgi is still included in this release.
But spawn-fcgi 1.6.0 has been released, see http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/spawn-fcgi/news, so expect it to be removed soon.

Important Changes

  • Fix default vhost in mod_simple_vhost (fixes #1905)
  • Fix segfault in mod_scgi (fixes #1911)
  • Fix error handling in freebsd sendfile (fixes #1913)


spawn-fcgi 1.6.0

February 28, 2009

As mentioned before, we planned to extract spawn-fcgi into its own project and remove it from lighttpd.

Now the first standalone release has been published, starting at version 1.6.0.

Read more about it in the announcement: Release: spawn-fcgi 1.6.0

Future release announcements regarding spawn-fcgi will be published at http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/spawn-fcgi/news so please keep that in mind when looking for updates.
