Dotdeb’s packages of the long-awaited Nginx 1.2.0 are now available for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” (amd64/i386) in five flavors : nginx-light, nginx-naxsi, nginx-full, nginx-passenger and nginx-extras.
This is a major release with a lot of improvements since the former 1.0 branch. Please take a look at Nginx’ official Changelog before upgrading.
On the Dotdeb side :
- Naxsi, a high performance, low rules maintenance, Web Application Firewall module, has been upgraded to its 0.45 version. Please read its documentation fore more info.
- Passenger has been upgraded to its 3.0.12 version.
- Because nginx-passenger is now dedicated to Passenger, nginx-extras does not contain it anymore. Don’t forget to backup your configuration files when switching from nginx-extras to nginx-passenger.
If you want to know which module has been included in each Nginx flavor, you just have to look at this useful document.
