Mod-Gearman 1.0.8 Released

Mod-Gearman 1.0.8 has been released (download).
This release mostly contains bugfixes only and a minor change to use the identifier more often.

Identifier used in error messages

Mod-Gearman adds the workers hostname to some common errors. For example the 127 exit code, file not found error. This helps the admin to easily determine which worker had the problem. From this version on, the identifier will be used (which is usually the hostname unless overwritten). This makes it even easier when running multiple worker on the same host.
