Nginx 1.6.0 has been released on April 24th 2014 (exactly one year after 1.4.0), incorporating many new features/enhancements developed in the 1.5.x branch :
- support for SPDY 3.1,
- authentication via subrequests,
- SSL session ticket support,
- IPv6 support for DNS,
- Proxy protocol support
- and more… See the full Changelog and this blog post for more details.
As a consequence, packages of Nginx 1.6.0 are now available for both Debian 7.0 “Wheezy” and Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” (amd64/i386). Please note that :
- Pagespeed has been updated to version 220.127.116.11,
- ngx_http_auth_request is now enabled in every nginx flavor,
- the error_log directive cannot be used with syslog anymore.
For more details about which modules are included in the different Nginx flavors, just have to look at this document.
I hope you’ll love these new packages and, if so, feel free to show your support.

thx for ths build, you may add a warning, as error_log syslog is no longer supported.
@vixns : thanks for the notice, I now mention it in the announcement.
Thanks a lot for the new release!
not sure if this has anything to do with this particular package but after the update nginx failed to start. service nginx stop/start didn’t help, only after I did a killall -9 nginx followed by service nginx start did it finally work out…
Hm, no problems at all with my systems. Update of Nginx was smooth and without any issues.
Installed and running fine.
I’m getting a 502 Bad Gateway for every php files after upgrade from 1.4.7 to 1.6
I’m using PHP5-fpm
I reply myself : It was related to PHP’s upgrade.
It’s explain in the note of this page : http://localhost:8080/2014/05/07/php-5-5-12-for-debian-wheezy/
With naxsi 0.53-1, great !
Thanks a lot
Where can I find the build instruction for the installation of nginx?
I need to add more modules then the default can offer.
If I want to change nginx installation from nginx-full to nginx-extras, should I uninstall first or just install nginx-extras directly?
@dave : you can switch from any nginx flavor, the configuration is kept by nginx-common
Thank you, Sir
Heya! Are you going to include ngx redis module in the future ? Thanks for all!
Is there any chance of having ngx_http_auth_digest included in a future version of nginx-extras?
@Oliver : could you please fill in the feature request (https://github.com/gplessis/dotdeb-nginx/issues), I’ll take a look at it in the next releases.
Was wondering if there is an update planned soon. As per https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ngx-pagespeed-discuss/moY9tXF5TFc, ngx_pagespeed has a security upgrade released last week.
@Vidyut : thanks for the notice, I’ll take a look at it this week-end.
