Bug Description


NGINX 1.15.9 was released today, and has a few bugfixes and one additional feature. The following is the upstream changelog for 1.15.9:

Changes with nginx 1.15.9 26 Feb 2019

    *) Feature: variables support in the "ssl_certificate" and
       "ssl_certificate_key" directives.

    *) Feature: the "poll" method is now available on Windows when using
       Windows Vista or newer.

    *) Bugfix: if the "select" method was used on Windows and an error
       occurred while establishing a backend connection, nginx waited for
       the connection establishment timeout to expire.

    *) Bugfix: the "proxy_upload_rate" and "proxy_download_rate" directives
       in the stream module worked incorrectly when proxying UDP datagrams.

Of these, the one bugfix that is not Windows related is relevant, as is the new feature with variables support in the certificate directives. Those who are proxying UDP (and there are some) will not be able to ratelimit the proxying of UDP without the bugfix, and those using dynamic wildcard hosts will now be able to use variables when defining the SSL certificates (dynamic certs) to serve.

Because of the new features, this will need an FFe for inclusion.

Once builds are present, I'll run install and runtime tests.

Builds confirmed successful, and installed in a Disco container for testing.

Screenshots showing installed version attached, as well as the NGINX landing page (default site page) and the NGINX reported version as well in front of it to show it does work out of the box with a standard static page.
