NGINX Plus R20 builds on the enhancements made in R19 to rate limiting, adding real-time monitoring and logging; connection limiting now has the same features. We also added prefix matching in the key-value store, DNS resolution per upstream group, new PROXY Protocol variables, and improved security for HTTP/2.
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 Plus R19 extends our monitoring capabilities, both with a larger set of metrics and new ways to analyze them; adds a dry-run mode for testing the effect of rate limiting; enhances the key-value store to support IP address ranges; and makes rate limiting more dynamic.
The first half of 2019 has seen significant enhancements to the NGINX Application Platform and related products: the NGINX Controller Load Balancing and API Management modules, NGINX Plus, NGINX Unit, and the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes. Catch up on what you might have missed!
NGINX announces the latest branches of NGINX Open Source, the stable 1.16 branch and the mainline 1.17 branch. New to the stable branch are improvements to UDP proxying, the Random load‑balancing method, support for TLS 1.3 early data, dynamic loading of SSL certificates, and more.
Release 1.5.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes introduces a new configuration schema, extended Prometheus-based metrics, simplifications to TLS configuration, support for load balancing traffic to ExternalName services, and a new repository for Helm charts.
The Load Balancing Module in NGINX Controller 2.0 has a new configuration-centric, policy-based approach for configuration management to complement the existing instance-centric approach; integration with ServiceNow; control over logging; and an offline installation method.
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.
