This is a bugfix release of NGINX Unit that eliminates a security flaw.
All versions of Unit from 0.3 to 1.7 are affected.

Everybody is strongly advised to update to a new version.

Changes with Unit 1.7.1                                          07 Feb 2019

    *) Security: a heap memory buffer overflow might have been caused in the
       router process by a specially crafted request, potentially resulting
       in a segmentation fault or other unspecified behavior

    *) Bugfix: install of Go module failed without prior building of Unit
       daemon; the bug had appeared in 1.7.

Release of Unit 1.8 with support for internal request routing and an
experimental Java module is planned for end of February.
