IronWorker has a Shiny New Gem and a Shiny New API

Version 2 of the SimpleWorker API is now available featuring many new functions, a bunch of new documentation, and not to mention it is a LOT faster and more robust as it is has been rewritten from the ground up. And all this comes along with a shiny new Ruby gem.

The new gem uses the new API and here's the benefits to you:
  • Better performance: we changed the underlying HTTP library that uses native curl meaning you can queue up jobs a lot faster than before
  • Better performance: the new API is a lot faster and has much better response times so the gem benefits by default
  • Better security: SSL and it's enabled by default
  • Better authentication: The new API uses Oauth2 authentication making it much simpler to work with

NOTE: You will need to update the authentication parameters in your configuration block to use the new gem. Please check this upgrade guide to see how to do this.
