Nginx 1.26 stable is out as the newest version of this popular alternative to the Apache web server while also able to work as a load balancer, reverse proxy, and HTTP cache. Nginx 1.26 incorporates the great work from the Nginx 1.25 mainline branch such as experimental HTTP/3 support.

Nginx 1.26 stable is shipping with experimental HTTP/3 support. HTTP/2 support on a per-server basis, virtual server support within the stream module, passing stream connections to listen sockets, and various other changes.

The Nginx HTTP/3 support remains experimental for now and is not built by default. The ngx_http_v3_module is used and relies on having an SSL library present with QUIC support.
