Nginx 1.13.10 32-bit and 64-bit builds for Windows are now available for free download.
As usual, packages were built using the upstream mainline branch’s source code. “Engine x” is a high performance web server. It is also a caching proxy and a Layer 7 load balancing solution. Millions of web sites on the Internet use and benefit from Nginx while offering extreme performance, scalability, reliability, flexibility, and security.
On 20 March 2018, the mainline version 1.13.10 was released at nginx.org. Also, the upstream changelog is as follows:
Changes with nginx 1.13.10 – 20 March 2018
- ) Feature: the “set” parameter of the “include” SSI directive now allows writing arbitrary responses to a variable; the “subrequest_output_buffer_size” directive defines maximum response size.
- ) Feature: now nginx uses clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC) if available, to avoid timeouts being incorrectly triggered on system time changes.
- ) Feature: the “escape=none” parameter of the “log_format” directive. Thanks to Johannes Baiter and Calin Don.
- ) Feature: the $ssl_preread_alpn_protocols variable in the ngx_stream_ssl_preread_module.
- ) Feature: the ngx_http_grpc_module.
- ) Bugfix: in memory allocation error handling in the “geo” directive.
- ) Bugfix: when using variables in the “auth_basic_user_file” directive a null character might appear in logs. Thanks to Vadim Filimonov.
Due to the build process, these Windows install files are provided to support legacy users. In other words, those who still use the Cygwin based builds. I started building long before official builds became available. Initially there was no other way to run on Windows. But now, official native Windows builds are available and supported at nginx.org. So please use the official builds if you are new to Nginx on Windows. Once again, they are fully supported and available for download at nginx.org.
