Nginx 1.6.3 has been released on April 7th 2015, with the following changes :

  • Feature: now the tcp_nodelay directive works with SPDY connections.
  • Bugfix: in error handling. Thanks to Yichun Zhang and Daniil Bondarev.
  • Bugfix: alerts header already sent appeared in logs if the post_action directive was used; the bug had appeared in 1.5.4.
  • Bugfix: alerts sem_post() failed might appear in logs.
  • Bugfix: in hash table handling. Thanks to Chris West.
  • Bugfix: in integer overflow handling. Thanks to Régis Leroy.

As a consequence, packages of Nginx 1.6.3 are now available for both Debian 7 “Wheezy” and Debian 6 “Squeeze” (amd64/i386).

All the modules have been updated to their latest version.

For more details about which modules are included in the different Nginx flavors, just have to look at this document.

    I’m not sure about how to read the document about the nginx flavors, for example the http_flv_module is disabled by default only in nginx-extras package, so it means it’s available but not enabled?
    So sum it up, if I want to use this module, which flavor should I choose?

  2. Guillaume Plessis

    @Philippe : mod_flv is disabled by default (= in every flavor without any explicit mark). That means it’s enabled in nginx-extras, and only in nginx-extras.

    @AoEmaster : PHP 5.6 is already included in Jessie, so I’ll only package PHP 7 once it has been released. Nginx and Redis will be published on Dotdeb.

    @Pascal : no, I only focus on the stable 1.6 branch, because I include some third-party module that break with the devel 1.7 branch.

    Just being curious, but which Nginx 1.7 feature are you interested in?

  5. JCG

    Packages for Jessie would be highly appreciated.

    For me, most important are:

    PHP, Redis, Nginx

    Thanks for everything, but why don’t you include nginx-http-auth-digest as well?
