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

This release proceeds to extend the coverage of ECMAScript 5.1 

  - Added initial support for extending the existing prototypes. So,
  generic functions can be added to extend functionality of built-in

   : > String.prototype.myUpper = function() {return this.toUpperCase()}
   :   [Function]
   : > 'abc'.myUpper()
   :   'ABC'

You can learn more about njs:
