[erlang-questions] [ANN] Ranch 0.6.0 Xmas Edition Released

Haven't had any stability issue. What we did here is ensure that when 
any process gets killed for any reason, especially reasons we can't 
foresee, Ranch continues to work as expected.

Ranch not updating protocol options for existing connections isn't a 
problem, it won't be "fixed". Ranch can't guess how connection processes 
are implemented. It's up to you to allow this if you need it. The 
upgrade updates the options for all acceptors and all future 
connections, that's it.
