Nginx 1.0.0 is out!

Nginx 1.0.0 has been delared stable and has been released three days ago :

nginx development was started about 9 years ago. The first public version 0.1.0 has been released on October 4, 2004. Now W3Techs reports that 6.8% of the top 1 million sites on the web (according to Alexa) use nginx. And 46.9% of top Russian sites use nginx.

Netcraft reports similar 6.52% nginx share of the million busiest sites in April 2011.

The packages of Nginx 1.0.0 are now available on Dotdeb for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” in amd64 and i386 flavours. I hope you’ll enjoy them.


PHP 5.3.6 is available

On March 17th, the PHP Group released PHP 5.3.6. This maintainance release, that focuses on security, is now available on Dotdeb for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” in amd64 and i386 flavours.
The compatibility with the official Debian packages has been improved and you (especially the FPM users) should really take care of some important changes that I made :
  • the intl extension is now built in a separate package : php5-intl
  • the FPM binary is now /usr/sbin/php5-fpm (previously /usr/bin/php5-fpm)
  • the FPM configuration file is now /etc/php5/fpm/php-fpm.conf (previously /etc/php5/fpm/php5-fpm.conf)
  • the FPM pools have to be moved to /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/ (previously /etc/php5/fpm/pools/)

As usual, please read the Changelog before upgrading.

Note : The PHP 5.3.6 packages for Debian 5.0 “Lenny” should be released soon.
Update : the PHP 5.3.6 packages for Debian 5.0 “Lenny” are now available on
