I'm glad to announce a new release of NGINX JavaScript module (njs).

This release focuses on stabilization of recently released features
including async/await and HTTPS support in ngx.fetch().

The "js_include" directive deprecated since 0.4.0 was removed.

Also a series of user invisible refactoring was committed. The most
prominent one is PCRE2 support. PCRE2 is the default RegExp engine
