BackgrounDRb 1.0.3 release ( Requiem for a dream )

Hi Folks,

BackgrounDRb 1.0.3 is available now. This release contains several bug fixes, cleanups, test case coverage and brand new documentation.

  * Added TestCases for Cron Triggers, Meta Workers and stuff. We are heading towards proper code coverage with test/spec.

  * Added preliminary support for starting a worker on demand through scheduler. What it means is, when you have a worker which is getting   scheduled very less frequently and you don't want the worker to persist, you can ask BackgrounDRb to restart the worker on each schedule.

  * Fixed some unreported issues with writing data to socket between workers and stuff.

  * Fixed issues with too many open connections, because connections were not getting closed. BackgrounDRb now opens only one connection, which is   reused throughout the lifecycle of rails application.

  * Fixed all outstanding issues with Cron triggers, BackgrounDRb now explicitly depends on "chronic" gem.

  * Removed Framework directory and BackgrounDRb now explicitly depends on packet gem.    We also did lot of work on documentation and new docs are available at:

Credits: * Dale cook for helping out with documentation. * Alex for awesome patches. * Ezra and Skaar for taking BackgrounDRb so far. * Francis Cianfrocca for EventMachine and inspiration.
