The next formal release of OpenResty will be based on the new Nginx 1.9.x core.

OpenResty (aka. ngx_openresty) is a full-fledged web application
server by bundling the standard Nginx core, Lua/LuaJIT, 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:
