Igor Sysoev, the developer of NGINX has released version 1.1.16 of his web server software. The project aims to provide a stable, high performance alternative to more traditional competitors such as Apache HTTP Server or Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Services).
The new development version comes with features such as a "from" parameter for the "disable_symlinks" directive, an increased limit for simultaneous subrequests and the ability to return 307 redirection messages. Bugs fixed include segmentation faults and build problems.
More details on this release can be found in the change log. The software is available to download for Windows and Linux (RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian), and source code is made available under a 2-clause BSD licence.
