Build 1.7.7

NGINX Plus r5

NGINX Plus r5 is a feature release of NGINX Plus:

  • New TCP proxying and load balancing mode (the stream module).
  • Sticky session timeout now applies from the most recent request in the session.
  • Upstream “draining” can be used to remove an upstream server without interrupting any user sessions (the drain command of the upstream conf dynamic configuration interface).
  • Improved control over request retries in the event of failure, based on number of tries and time. Also available for fastcgi, uwsgi, scgi and memcached modules.
  • Caching: the Vary response header is correctly handled (multiple variants of the same resource can be cached). Note that the on-disk cache format has changed, so cached content will be invalidated after the upgrade.
  • Caching: improved support for byte-range requests.
  • Ability to control upstream bandwidth with the proxy limit rate directive.
  • Lua module updated to version 0.9.13 (nginx-plus-lua, nginx-plus-extras).
  • Passenger module updated to version 4.0.53 (nginx-plus-extras).

NGINX Plus r5 is supported on: RHEL/CentOS 5.9, 6.5, 7; Debian 6, 7; SLES 11 SP3, 12; Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04, 14.04, 14.10; FreeBSD 9.3, 10.0. NGINX Plus Extras and NGINX Plus Lua have additional package dependencies.
