Unit 1.5 Released§
I’m glad to announce a new release of NGINX Unit.
This release introduces preliminary Node.js support.
Currently it lacks WebSockets, and there’s a known problem with “promises”. However, our admirable users have already started testing it even before the release: https://medium.com/house-organ/what-an-absolute-unit-a36851e72554
Now it even easier, since Node.js package is published in npm: https://www.npmjs.com/package/unit-http
So feel free to try it and give us feedback on:
- Github: https://github.com/nginx/unit/issues
- Mailing list: https://mailman.nginx.org/mailman/listinfo/unit
We will continue improving Node.js support in future releases.
Among other features we are working on right now: WebSockets, Java module, flexible request routing, and serving of static media assets.
