Nginx 1.13.2 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, caching proxy and a Layer 7 load balancing solution. Also, millions of web sites on the Internet use and benefit from Nginx while offering extreme performance, scalability, reliability, flexibility, and security.
On 2017-06-27, the mainline version 1.13.2 was released at nginx.org. Also, the upstream changelog is as follows:
Changes with 1.13.2 – 27 Jun 2017
- ) Change: now returns 200 instead of 416 when a range starting with 0 is requested from an empty file.
- ) Feature: the “add_trailer” directive. Thanks to Piotr Sikora.
- ) Bugfix: could not be built on Cygwin and NetBSD; the bug had appeared in 1.13.0.
- ) Bugfix: could not be built under MSYS2 / MinGW 64-bit. Thanks to Orgad Shaneh.
- ) Bugfix: a segmentation fault might occur in a worker process when using SSI with many includes and proxy_pass with variables.
- ) Bugfix: in the ngx_http_v2_module. Thanks to Piotr Sikora.
Due to the build process, these Windows install files are provided to support legacy users who still use the Cygwin based builds. I started building these because 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.
