New Nginx 1.4.0 is Officially Released

Nginx, an HTTP and reverse proxy server, as well as a mail proxy server, written by Igor Sysoev, has reached version 1.4.0.

Highlights of Nginx 1.4.0:

• A bug that prevented nginx to be built with the ngx_http_perl_module if the –with-openssl option had been used, has been fixed;
• A request body handling issues has been corrected in the ngx_http_perl_module;
• A segmentation fault no longer occurs in the work process, if subrequests have been used;
• The “tcp_nodelay” directive no longer causes an error, if a WebSocket connection has been proxied into a unix domain socket;
• The $upstream_response_length variable now has the correct value “0” if buffering hasn’t been used.
