I’m pleased to annunce the 0.0.4 release for mod_wsgi.
mod_wsgi is an implementation of the WSGI PEP
(http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0333/) for the Nginx web server.
Starting with this release mod_wsgi is a fully conforming implementation
of the WSGI specification (but there still can be some small problems).
Here is the changelog:
ignore conversion specification characters, used internally by
ngx_log_errorfor message formatting.
Bug fix: when WSGI application does not set the
headers, nginx sends duplicate headers.
Added a new directive
wsgi_temp_pathand a new variable
NGX_HTTP_WSGI_TEMP_PATHin the config script.
Improved the write callable buffering support.
Fixed an annoying problem with paths without ending slash when
Added patches for support of nginx < 0.5.32 and nginx 0.6.x.
Improved the configuration script, with correct external
Python build dependencies handling.
Bug fix: changed again the memory management code, using a queue.
Bug fix: broken implementation of ngx_list_pop.
This solves a memory corruption problem when serving large
files (using nginx-file sample application) with a “slow” client
Improved the write callable so that it now is fully conforming
with the WSGI spec.
Replaced the WSGI_BUFFERED_WRITE macro with the
Added an alternative implementation of the write callable, that
buffers all the data.
This function is the default one used, but this can be changed
using the WSGI_BUFFERED_WRITE macro in the module configuration
Added a wsgi_write_buffer_size directive to control the buffer
Note that this implementation does not conform with the WSGI
Added integrated support for cache validation in mod_wsgi using a
custom header filter.
Last-Modifiedvalidator is supported.
Added experimental support for the
Implemented the write callable.
This implementation is limited, since when data cannot be sent to
OS buffers, an IOError exception is raised.
Implemented the start_response callable.
When this directive is disabled (the default) the buffer sent to
the output filter is flushed.
Note that the default write callable implementation uses an hack to be
fully conforming (it sets the socket to blocking mode).
Please note that mod_wsgi is not a “standard” nginx module;
It should not be used for embedding Python applications inside your
primary web server.
