When to new directives from mainline trickle down to stable?

Hi!

We are currently using the stable release of nginx. We’d really like to
implement the sticky directive that was added to the HTTP Upstream
Module in the mainline release in 1.5.7
(http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_upstream_module.html#sticky)

My question is this… how long does it take for a new directive like
this to appear in stable? 1.5.7 was released in Nov 2013. I’m wondering
if we should move to mainline in our production environment, or wait
patiently for sticky to become part of stable.

I’ve scoured the FAQs and docs but can’t find any info on when features
trickle down to stable. Any insight you can provide will be greatly
appreciated. Thanks!

Regards,
John R.
