Passenger 3.0.12

Packages of Passenger 3.0.12 are now available for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures.

Here is the announcement from Phusion’s blog :

Phusion Passenger is an Apache and Nginx module for deploying Ruby web applications. It has a strong focus on ease of use, stability and performance. Phusion Passenger is built on top of tried-and-true, battle-hardened Unix technologies, yet at the same time introduces innovations not found in most traditional Unix servers. Since version 3.0 it can also run standalone without an external web server, making it not only easier for first-time users but also ideal on development environments.
