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

This release proceeds to extend the coverage of ECMAScript

Notable new features:
- Promises API for "fs" module.
: var fs = require('fs').promises;
: fs.readFile('/file/path').then(data => r.return(200, data));

- detached r.subrequest(): Running a subrequest in the log phase
: nginx.conf:
:   ...
:   js_set $js_log js_log;
:   ...
:   log_format subrequest_log "...$js_log";
:   access_log /log/path.log subrequest_log;
: nginx.js:
:   function js_log(r) {
:        r.subrequest('/_log', {detached:true});
:        return '';
:   }
