Hello, folks!

I am happy to announce the new development version of ngx_openresty,


Special thanks go to all our contributors and users for helping make
this happen!

Below is the complete change log for this release, as compared to the
last (development) release,

 *   upgraded LuaNginxModule to 0.6.10.

     *   feature: now ngx.req.get_headers() returns a Lua table with
         keys in the all-lower-case form by default. thanks James
         Hurst and Matthieu Tourne for the feature request.

     *   feature: now ngx.req.get_headers() adds an "__index"
         metamethod to the resulting Lua table by default, which will
         automatically normalize the lookup key by converting
         upper-case letters and underscores in case of a lookup miss.
         thanks James Hurst and Matthieu Tourne for suggesting this

     *   feature: now ngx.req.get_headers() accepts a second
         (optional) argument, "raw", for controlling whether to
         return the original form of the header names (that is, the
         original letter-case).

     *   feature: added public C API functions
         "ngx_http_shared_dict_get" and "ngx_http_lua_find_zone" to
         allow other Nginx C modules or a patched Nginx core to
         directly access the shared memory dictionaries created by
         LuaNginxModule. thanks Piotr Sikora for requesting this

     *   bugfix: fixed a compilation warning in the TCP/stream
         cosocket codebase when using (at least) gcc 3.4.6 for MIPS.
         thanks Dirk Feytons for reporting this as GitHub issue #162.

OpenResty (aka. ngx_openresty) is a full-fledged web application
server by bundling the standard Nginx core, lots of 3rd-party Nginx
modules, as well as most of their external dependencies. See
OpenResty's homepage for details:


We have been running extensive testing on our Amazon EC2 test cluster
and ensure that all the components (including the Nginx core) play
well together. The latest test report can always be found here:


Have fun!
