mod_zip (formerly ngx_zip) is an Nginx module that creates ZIP archives 
from upstream servers on the fly. It never uses more than a few 
kilobytes of RAM at a time, even while creating and sending archives 
that are gigabytes in size.

Today I am releasing mod_zip 1.1. Unlike previous versions, mod_zip 1.1 
fully supports the "Range" header from clients. ZIP downloads can now be 
paused and resumed, and download accelerators can download large ZIP 
archives in parallel chunks over separate TCP connections.

Users of previous versions should note several changes in mod_zip's 
interface before deploying; see the documentation.



Send bug reports to me.
