BitNami Redmine 2.0 Released!

We are happy to announce that we have released a new version of the BitNami Redmine Stack that includes the just-released Redmine 2.0.0. This new version of Redmine adds support for the latest Rails 3 release.

In addition to this, we have improved the deployment configuration so it can benefit from the latest improvements in Rails 3.

On Linux and OS X, the default configuration now uses Passenger (a.k.a mod_rails) instead of Mongrel Cluster servers. This configuration improves the Redmine application performance for these platforms (according to these tests).

Unfortunately, Passenger is not available for Windows, so the BitNami Redmine Stack uses Thin servers instead of Mongrel to deploy the Redmine application. Different benchmark tests show that Thin performance is also better than Mongrel.

Download the free native installer or virtual machine or deploy the new Redmine 2.0.0 version to the Amazon cloud in one click from the BitNami Redmine page. Enjoy!
