Is stale-while-revalidate (RFC 5861) currently supported in nginx?

There is a very old post from September, 2011 which says it is not
supported, I am just wondering if anything has changed since then?

http://mailman.nginx.org/pipermail/nginx/2011-September/028926.html

Thanks!

Using stale responses in nginx is controlled by the
proxy_cache_use_stale directive, which predated RFC 5861 and works
slightly differently. See here for details:

http://nginx.org/r/proxy_cache_use_stale

No support for Cache-Control extensions defined by RFC 5861 is
currently implemented.
