We’ll be including Phusion’s Passenger (mod_rails) in our feature lineup for Slamdot 2.0 due out in June. This will replace our current FastCGI setup and should improve overall performance for everyone using Rails on our servers. The most important part of this switch is that it’ll enable us to move over to Apache 2 (finally!) which will be great for everyone.
Overall, we’ve got some great things coming (hint: multiuser and reseller functionality) that we’re excited to start showing off here. We’ve been quiet lately as we’ve been working like crazy on the new Slamdot and now we’re ready to start blowing the whistle on some of the new features coming!
