Nginx 1.14.2 for Windows

Nginx 1.14.2 for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit builds) are now available for free download.

As always, packages are built from the upstream stable branch. Nginx (pronounced “engine x”) is a high performance web server, caching proxy and a Layer 7 load balancing solution. Due to its versatility, millions of web sites on the Internet use and benefit from Nginx because of its extreme performance, scalability, reliability, flexibility, and security.

Note: these builds are built with older versions of OpenSSL and therefore SSL/TLS is NOT recommended for use. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Using http only is recommended.

On 2018-12-04, the stable version of Nginx 1.14.2 was released at The upstream changelog is as follows:
