Nginx-0.7.36


#1

Changes with nginx 0.7.36 21 Feb
2009

*) Feature: a preliminary IPv6 support; the "listen" directive of 

the
HTTP module supports IPv6.

*) Bugfix: the $ancient_browser variable did not work for browsers
   preset by a "modern_browser" directives.

Usage:

./configure --with-ipv6 …

http {

server {
    listen  *:8000;         # ipv4
    listen  [::]:8000;      # ipv6
    listen  [fe80::1];      # ipv6

#2

Have you any plans (or even a time-span) to fully support IPv6?

Do you have any documentation about writing modules for nginx?
I was planning to write a more detailed documentation on module
development
then the one from Evan M., since I just written a module for my work
(and customized the memcached module) and encountered it was missing
much
information, although it was very helpfull.

Yes, of course. The “listen” part was the most complex one: I had to
refactor the old 2003 year code. Other parts are easy. However, I’m not
plan
to add IPv6 support in geo module in near future.

No. As far as I know, there are third-party documentations:
English one by Evan M. and two Russian:

Thanks igor, I can finally get rid of apache for good once ipv6 is
running.
I might have a play.

Thanks for Igor’s hard work, but the download link URL for nginx-0.7.36 on Nginx.net not be updated.

Thank you.

Again, I hope someday we can compile nginx under MinGW, then we can get Windows native version.

Probably, I will release soon a native binary, built by MSVC 8 on
FreeBSD/Wine.

Reverted back to 0.7.35 and all is working as expected.

The bug have been fixed in 0.7.37.

Hi Igor,

I tried to run 0.7.36. No problem configuring or compiling but when I
run it
I get a 502 using php. Two different boxes, one using php-fpm, the other
apache-mod_php. No changes in config files.

Reverted back to 0.7.35 and all is working as expected.
