Non standard mime types are not recognized by gzip_types?

Hi.

nginx/0.7.66 on Debian Stable

We have an application that sends the content type:

Content-Type: application/vnd.companyname.product;version=1.0

We have nginx as a proxy to these application servers. We would like
nginx to gzip this data. We have tried the following for gzip_types:

gzip_types application/vnd application/vnd.companyname
application/companyname.product
‘application/vnd.companyname.product;version=1.0’
application/vnd.companyname.product;version=1.0

(nginx was complaining of the unexpected ; without quotes or escape)

However, this content type has not been gzip’d per Content-Encoding and
size. gzip works correctly for types text/html, application/json, and
so on.

Are we missing something or must we wait for 0.8.x for wildcard matching
with gzip_types?

Thanks!

gzip_types ‘application/vnd.companyname.product;version=1.0’;
works fine here in 0.7.66, most likely you missed something.
