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 Ingress Controller Release 1.8.0 introduces NGINX App Protect integration, extensibility mechanisms for NGINX Ingress resources, URI rewrites and request and response header modification, policies and IP address-based ACLs, and more.
We introduce the beta version of the NGINX Controller Data Forwarder, with an integration for Splunk. You create a single configuration in one place to capture enhanced data from all of your NGINX Plus instances and feed it to the monitoring infrastructure you've already invested in.
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 technology preview of NGINX support for QUIC+HTTP/3 as pre-release software, available for interoperability testing, feedback, and code contributions. HTTP/3 replaces TCP with QUIC, which is designed to support multiplexed connections more reliably.
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.
With NGINX App Protect, you no longer have to choose between security and performance. It combines the proven effectiveness of F5’s advanced WAF technology with the agility and performance of NGINX Plus, to address the security challenges facing modern DevOps environments.
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.
