Nginx, stable is not so mainline.

Wut ? Yeah, its a shout to all people using Nginx, stable repo is like Centos stable. Meaning no new features, only major bug-fixes. This isn’t exactly new information, but its new for people who where living under a nginx’ rock like myself. This means you are missing out on possible allot of nice features and smaller bug-fixes that are considered “breaking”. Its all explained pretty good here on the release, but who reads a release announcement from 2014 …
So if you like me have this in /etc/yum.repo.d/nginx.repo
[nginx] name=nginx repo baseurl=https://nginx.org/packages/centos/6/$basearch/ gpgcheck=0 enabled=1
You can get more free goodies by changing to
[nginx] name=nginx repo baseurl=https://nginx.org/packages/mainline/centos/6/$basearch/ #baseurl=https://nginx.org/packages/centos/6/$basearch/ gpgcheck=0 enabled=1
Just for comparison :
- Centos repo’s has no version of Nginx
- Epel release has version 1.0.15
- Nginx stable has version 1.8.1-1
- Nginx mainline has version 1.9.11
This means only the mainline at this point can support http/2!
