Release Notes for Ubuntu

Bug Description

This will apply to Xenial only.


NGINX 1.9.6 has been in Xenial for some time.

During the NGINX 1.9.6 merge, additional mandates have been given, and additional information made available to me.

SPDY/HTTP2 support:
* SPDY is dead in the nginx packages with this merge/update and future versions - it was replaced with the HTTP/2 modules.
* HTTP/2 is disabled in the packages as a result of a Security Team mandate. Those who are hoping to see HTTP/2 support in the Xenial packages of nginx will not see that support as long as that mandate is in place.

Release notes will reflect this closer to release time, when a Release Notes section is written. This bug's description may update again closer to release date.

An update on this. It has been relayed to me that there will be no 'breaking' failure when SPDY is present in the configuration files, although it will not operate until the individuals use the HTTP/2 module instead.

Thus, any release notes made available for Xenial regarding nginx will need to reference this change, and where individuals can look for HTTP/2 configuration information.

Thomas and the nginx team have convinced me that nginx's http/2 implementation is widely used and mature enough to enable before 16.04 LTS release.
