Changes with nginx 1.11.0                                        24 May 2016

    *) Feature: the "transparent" parameter of the "proxy_bind",
       "fastcgi_bind", "memcached_bind", "scgi_bind", and "uwsgi_bind"

    *) Feature: the $request_id variable.

    *) Feature: the "map" directive supports combinations of multiple
       variables as resulting values.

    *) Feature: now nginx checks if EPOLLRDHUP events are supported by
       kernel, and optimizes connection handling accordingly if the "epoll"
       method is used.

    *) Feature: the "ssl_certificate" and "ssl_certificate_key" directives
       can be specified multiple times to load certificates of different
       types (for example, RSA and ECDSA).

    *) Feature: the "ssl_ecdh_curve" directive now allows specifying a list
       of curves when using OpenSSL 1.0.2 or newer; by default a list built
       into OpenSSL is used.

    *) Change: to use DHE ciphers it is now required to specify parameters
       using the "ssl_dhparam" directive.

    *) Feature: the $proxy_protocol_port variable.

    *) Feature: the $realip_remote_port variable in the

    *) Feature: the ngx_http_realip_module is now able to set the client
       port in addition to the address.

    *) Change: the "421 Misdirected Request" response now used when
       rejecting requests to a virtual server different from one negotiated
       during an SSL handshake; this improves interoperability with some
       HTTP/2 clients when using client certificates.

    *) Change: HTTP/2 clients can now start sending request body
       immediately; the "http2_body_preread_size" directive controls size of
       the buffer used before nginx will start reading client request body.

    *) Bugfix: cached error responses were not updated when using the
       "proxy_cache_bypass" directive.
