Coming just two months after the big Apache 2.4 web-server release, NGINX has a large release of its own. This release also comes after the announcement last October that NGINX would be pursuing commercial interests as well after raising three million dollars.
Among the features of NGINX 1.2.0 is support for keep-alive connections to upstream servers, consolidation of multiple simultaneous requests to upstream servers if caching is used, support for multiple requests and connection limits used simultaneously, and reduced memory consumption in various edge cases. The full NGINX 1.2.0 change-log is available from the project's website.
More information on the NGINX 1.2.0 release is available from NGINX.org.
