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 …

Its so clear, why did I miss it during installation?

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 :

This means only the mainline at this point can support http/2!
