Assembly language is popular in all kinds of system software and we believe that web development can also benefit from the advantages it provides. Today we're pleased to add support for assembly language to NGINX Unit. Web development in assembly has never been so easy.
NGINX Unit 1.13.0 introduces reverse proxying, and version 1.14.0 adds address-based routing to the internal routing and file-serving functionality from previous releases. We combine the new features in a complete configuration example for IP address filtering and access management.
Application isolation in NGINX Unit enables you to control which types of system resources your apps share with NGINX Unit and each other. Running apps in isolated environments improves security. Get all the details on how it works, and what it means for the future of NGINX Unit.
NGINX Unit 1.11.0 introduces support for static file serving, a much requested feature ever since NGINX Unit debuted. It also includes application (process) isolation using Linux namespaces and a WebSocket server implementation for Java Servlet Containers. NGINX Unit 1.12.0 adds support for PHP 7.4.
NGINX Unit 1.9.0 and 1.10.0 introduce request routing based on matching arguments, headers, cookies, and scheme; appending elements to arrays; a built‑in WebSocket server for Node.js; and new guides for Catalyst, NextCloud, Redmine, Docker, and language modules.
NGINX Unit is a key component in our modern platform spans from code to customer: it's configured dynamically via API for no app downtime; it can run apps written in multiple languages and versions at the same time; its small footprint makes it ideal for microservices and deployable on any infrastructure.
NGINX Unit 1.8.0 introduces internal routing of requests based on host, URL, and HTTP method, This sets the framework for full Layer 7 request processing, necessary for further development of Unit's web server functionality.
We look back over the most influential blog posts of 2018 on nginx.com, to remind you of what we’ve worked hard on improving to make your experience of NGINX even better. The year witnessed announcements and updates for many products in the NGINX Application Platform.
With NGINX Unit, configuring a new application in an existing production environment does not disrupt existing apps or require configuration reloads. Here are all the relevant commands and configuration from Amanda Bockoven's demo at NGINX Conf 2018.
