trouble with set_escape_uri directive in nginx 1.8.0

Hello Folks,

We are setting up a new server(from a VM image) and it works absolutely
fine with nginx 1.6. When we upgrade to latest stable version(1.8.0), nginx
fails to start with following error:

nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "set_escape_uri" in
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

We upgraded nginx version to 1.9.3 and nginx is starting perfectly fine. So
before moving with 1.9.3, just wanted to check if it's a know issue with
1.8.0 or we might be missing something. Please let me know if I can share
some more information to help us.

Have a great day ahead.

Thanks & Regards,
Gaurav Gupta
