1.4.19 - Made in Germany

March 10, 2008

Long time no see.

It has been almost half a year since 1.4.18. 6months. Jan has been working on many interesting features for 1.5. [1] Currently he ports it to glib2.

But back to 1.4.19. Yes again the release date was nailed down by a few security bugs. *cough* Nevertheless we got a ton of other nice bugfixes. All praise our new lighttpd hero Stefan Bühler. Big thank you from my side. (darix)

Mono + FastCGI

January 23, 2008

Reggie pointed me to the FastCGI support for Mono. For our lighttpd they have a full featured page that should cover all possible configuration needs.

Feel free to try it out and comment on this article if it works as expected.
