NGINX Unit 1.16.0 introduces two new features that are already familiar to NGINX users. First, it can load balance across a group of upstream servers using the round-robin method. Second, you can define what happens when a requested file can't be served, similar to the NGINX 'try_files' directive.
NGINX Controller 3.0 is a complete platform upgrade that introduces application-centric management of your NGINX Plus-based infrastructure. It includes a self‑service portal for RBAC-based collaboration, a DevOps-optimized API, and a built-in certificate manager.
Release 1.6.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes includes improvements to NGINX Ingress Resources, support for OpenTracing, and much more.
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.
