Windows nginx Lizard

11:16 14-5-2015 nginx Lizard

Based on nginx (8-5-2015, with ‘stream’ tcp load balancer) with;

  • pcre-8.37 (upgraded, regression tested)
  • During re-factoring nginx for Windows we’ve switched code base which
    makes it easier for us to import original nginx code without Windows
    issues by using a new native linux <> windows low level API which
    natively deals with spinlock, mutex locking, Windows event driven
    technology and full thread separation
    nginx 1.9 has currently 1 known issue; ajp cache which basically has
    issue with the 1.7.12 code base caching (without cache ajp works fine)
    ajp_cache_path causes segmentation fault on Nginx 1.8.0 · Issue #37 · yaoweibin/nginx_ajp_module · GitHub
    nb. prove05 will have crashes / failed tests due to this issue
  • 1.9 api change fixes across all modules
  • rtmp, is the last free version with rtmp, we do have a rtmp
    special offer for the 1.9 branch (which without rtmp you could use
    to tcp load balance with rtmp)
  • Source changes back ported
  • Source changes add-on’s back ported
  • Changes for nginx_basic: Source changes back ported
  • Scheduled release: yes
  • Additional specifications: see ‘Feature list’
  • This release is dedicated to my beloved wife Shirley Anne aged 57 who
    passed away this May, I shall miss her dearly. After a 40 year
    battle with the effects of diabetes a welsh dragon has lost her fight
    “Mae hen wlad fy nhadau lle rhuo y Dreigiau”
