Me and Fabio Tranchitella are the maintainers of the nginx package in
Debian, which is also sync'ed with Ubuntu (from Sid)
Debian 4.0 (Etch) shipped with an old nginx because an update was not
allowed by the Release Managers at the moment. Debian Lenny and Debian
Sid have up-to-date nginx packages at the moment.
Hopefully Debian Lenny will release with a 0.6 release. The absolute
minimum will be 0.5.35.
We're also planning to include 0.7 in experimental in the next week. We
are also handling the package metadata using SVN, so updates are
_really_ easy in every branch (except Etch :))
Feel free to file a bug in the Debian BTS  if you need a specific
compile option or feature added to the package.
