Today we are proud to announce the release of Rack 1.4.1.

= Rack, a modular Ruby webserver interface 

Rack provides a minimal, modular and adaptable interface for developing web applications in Ruby.  By wrapping HTTP requests and responses in the simplest way possible, it unifies and distills the API for web servers, web frameworks, and software in between (the so-called middleware) into a single method call.
The exact details of this are described in the Rack specification, which all Rack applications should conform to. 

== Changes

* January 22nd, 2012: Twenty fifth public release 1.4.1
  * Alter the keyspace limit calculations to reduce issues with nested params
  * Add a workaround for multipart parsing where files contian unescaped "%"
  * Added Rack::Response::Helpers#method_not_allowed? (code 405)
  * Rack::File now returns 404's for illegal directory traversals
  * Rack::File now returns 405's for illegal methods (non HEAD/GET)
  * Rack::Cascade now catches 405 by default, as well as 404
  * Cookies missing '--' no longer cause an exception to be raised
  * Various style changes and documentation spelling errors
  * Rack::BodyProxy always ensures to execute it's block
  * Additional test coverage around cookies and secrets
  * Rack::Session::Cookie can now be supplied either secret or old_secret
  * Tests are no longer dependent on set order
  * Rack::Static no longer defaults to serving index files
  * Rack.release was fixed
