NGINX Controller 3.7 introduces some major enhancements. The API definition workflow is redesigned to extend Controller’s app‑centric model to the API Management Module. The Developer Portal is generally available. And there are new features for easier API management and more security.
NGINX Unit 1.18.0 introduces filesystem isolation, the 'target' option to reduce redundancy in PHP app configuration, and URL encoding. It also includes features introduced in NGINX Unit 1.17.0: redirects, and fractional server weights for traffic distribution in upstream groups.
We announce the latest branches of NGINX Open Source, the stable 1.18 branch and the mainline 1.19 branch. New to the stable branch are dry-run mode for request rate and connection limiting; protection against timing attacks; more support for variable parameters, and more.
Release 1.7.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes includes certification of the Red Hat OpenShift Operator, support for TCP, UDP, and TCP Passthrough load balancing, a circuit breaker implementation, and improved validation and reporting for NGINX Ingress resources.
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.
