I am happy to announce the new 220.127.116.11 release of the OpenResty bundle:
Special thanks go to all our contributors for making this happen!
Below is the complete change log for this release, as compared to the
last formal release, 18.104.22.168:
* upgraded LuaJIT to v2.1-20140330.
* feature: included Mike Pall's new "trace stitching" feature
that can compile around most of the NYI items. thanks
CloudFlare Inc. for sponsoring the development. This helps
compiling more Lua code. For example, it gives 10% ~ 40%
speedup in simple test cases of LuaRestyMySQLLibrary out of
* bugfix: included all the new bug fixes from Mike Pall, most
of which are very obscure bugs in the JIT compiler hidden
* relaxed the hard-coded heuristic limit further to 100 for
* feature: applied John Marino's patch for compiling LuaJIT on
DragonFlyBSD. thanks lhmwzy for proposing the patch.
* upgraded the Nginx core to 1.5.11.
* see the changes here: <http://nginx.org/en/CHANGES>
* bugfix: applied the patch to the NGINX core for the latest SPDY
security vulnerability (CVE-2014-0133).
* feature: added support for DragonFlyBSD to "./configure". thanks
lhmwzy for the patch.
* bugfix: disabled the -Werror option for clang because it caused
build failures at least in recent Mac OS X systems. thanks
Hamish Forbes for the report.
* feature: bundled new component
* see the documentation for details:
* feature: bundled new component LuaUpstreamNginxModule 0.01.
* see the documentation for details:
* upgraded LuaNginxModule to 0.9.6.
* feature: added new configuration directives,
init_worker_by_lua and init_worker_by_lua_file, to run Lua
code upon every nginx worker process's startup.
* feature: added new API function ngx.config.nginx_configure()
to return the NGINX "./configure" arguments string to the
Lua land. thanks Tatsuhiko Kubo for the patch.
* feature: added new API function ngx.resp.get_headers() for
fetching all the response headers. thanks Tatsuhiko Kubo for
* feature: added new API function ngx.worker.pid() for
retrieving the current nginx worker process's pid.
* feature: explicitly check Lua langauge version mismatch; we
only accept the Lua 5.1 language (for now).
* bugfix: accessing a cosocket object from a request which
does not create it could lead to segmentation faults. now we
throw out a Lua error "bad request" properly in this case.
* change: it is now the user's responsibility to clear the
captures table for ngx.re.match().
* bugfix: we should prefix our chunk names for from-string lua
source (which also leads to nicer error messages). thanks
Mike Pall for the catch.
* bugfix: subrequests initiated by ngx.location.capture* with
the HEAD method did not result in responses without response
bodies. thanks Daniel for the report.
* bugfix: segfault might happen in the FFI API for destroying
compiled PCRE regexes, which affects libraries like
LuaRestyCoreLibrary. thanks Dane Kneche.
* bugfix: fixes for small string buffer arguments in the C API
for FFI-based implementations of shdict:get().
* bugfix: fixed the error message buffer overwrite in the C
API for FFI-based ngx.re implementations.
* bugfix: use of the public C API in other nginx C modules
(extending LuaNginxModule) lead to compilation errors and
warnings when the Microsoft C compiler is used. thanks Edwin
Cleton for the report.
* bugfix: segmentation faults might happen when multiple
"light threads" in the same request manipuate a stream
cosocket object in turn. thanks Aviram Cohen for the report.
* bugfix: timers created by ngx.timer.at() might not be
aborted prematurely upon nginx worker exit. thanks Hamish
Forbes for the report.
* bugfix: the return value sizes of the C functions
"ngx_http_lua_init_by_file" were wrong.
* optimize: coroutine status string look-up is now a bit more
efficient by specifying the string lengths explicitly.
thanks Tatsuhiko Kubo for the patch.
* various code refactoring.
* upgraded LuaRestyCoreLibrary to 0.0.5.
* change: now it is the user's responsibility to clear the
input result table.
* feature: resty.core.regex: added new function
"set_buf_grow_ratio" to control the buffer grow ratio
* bugfix: segmentation fault might happen due to assignments
to ngx.header.HEADER because we did not anchor the memory
buffer properly which might get collected prematurely.
* bugfix: ngx.req.get_headers: we need to anchor the string
buffer being casted otherwise it might be accidentally
garbage collected when we still hold a C pointer to it. this
bug might lead to segmentation faults.
* optimize: cache the match captures table for ngx.re.gsub()
when a function-typed "replace" argument is specified. this
gives a remarkable speedup.
* optimize: resty.core.regex: forked the original shared code
paths to multiple specialized versions, which helps the JIT
* optimize: resty.core.regex: cache the parsing results for
the regex option strings. thanks Mike Pall for the
* upgraded LuaRestyRedisLibrary to 0.20.
* feature: added new redis 2.8.0 commands: "scan", "sscan",
"hscan", and "zscan". thanks Dragonoid for the patch.
* feature: the read_reply() method can now be re-tried
immediately after a "timeout" error is returned.
* bugfix: the "unsubscribe"/"subscribe" commands could not be
called after read_reply() returned "timeout". thanks
doujiang for the patch.
* bugfix: we incorrectly allowed reusing redis connections in
the "subscribed" state. thanks doujiang for the patch.
* upgraded LuaCjsonLibrary to 22.214.171.124.
* rebased on lua-cjson 2.1.0:
the most notable new feature is the "cjson.safe" module.
* feature: applied Jiale Zhi's patch to add the new config
function "encode_empty_table_as_object" so that we can
encode empty Lua tables into empty JSON arrays.
* upgraded SrcacheNginxModule to 0.26.
* bugfix: HEAD requests might result in response bodies.
* upgraded EchoNginxModule to 0.52.
* bugfix: HEAD subrequests could still result in non-empty

OpenResty (aka. ngx_openresty) is a full-fledged web application
server by bundling the standard Nginx core, lots of 3rd-party Nginx
modules and Lua libraries, as well as most of their external
dependencies. See OpenResty's homepage for details:
We have run extensive testing on our Amazon EC2 test cluster and
ensured that all the components (including the Nginx core) play well
together. The latest test report can always be found here:
