After discussing with NewBamboo guys it was decided to move their merb_exceptions plugin to merb-plugins. The notifier currently supports two interfaces, Email Alerts and Web Hooks. Emails are formatted as plain text and sent using your Merb environment’s mail settings. Web hooks as sent as post requests. Railists moving over to this side of the fence will not have to develop their own exception_notification plugin anymore. Note the NewBamboo team will keep on maintaining the plugin, we just moved it the set of official plugins.
We got some reports of problems killing workers when using DataMapper and HEAD from yesterday, this is a known problem which should be fixed in the next few days at the latest. (use
merb -K allto kill your workers instead of ctrl+c)
