Unicorn is a HTTP server for Rack applications designed to only serve
fast clients on low-latency, high-bandwidth connections and take
advantage of features in Unix/Unix-like kernels. Slow clients should
only be served by placing a reverse proxy capable of fully buffering
both the the request and response in between Unicorn and slow clients.

This release mainly works around BSD stdio compatibility issues
that affect at least FreeBSD and OS X. While this issues was
documented and fixed in [ruby-core:26300], no production
release of MRI 1.8 has it, and users typically upgrade MRI more
slowly than gems. This issue does NOT affect 1.9 users. Thanks
to Vadim Spivak for reporting and testing this issue and Andrey
Stikheev for the fix.
Additionally there are small documentation bits, one error
handling improvement, and one minor change that should improve
reliability of signal delivery.
