The NGINX Mainline PPA has been updated with NGINX Mainline version 1.7.11. It includes builds for Ubuntu Precise, Ubuntu Trusty, Ubuntu Utopic, and Ubuntu Vivid, and the i386, amd64, and armhf architectures.

The following is the list of changes from NGINX upstream:

Changes with nginx 1.7.11                                        24 Mar 2015

    *) Change: the "sendfile" parameter of the "aio" directive is
       deprecated; now nginx automatically uses AIO to pre-load data for
       sendfile if both "aio" and "sendfile" directives are used.

    *) Feature: experimental thread pools support.

    *) Feature: the "proxy_request_buffering", "fastcgi_request_buffering",
       "scgi_request_buffering", and "uwsgi_request_buffering" directives.

    *) Feature: request body filters experimental API.

    *) Feature: client SSL certificates support in mail proxy.
       Thanks to Sven Peter, Franck Levionnois, and Filipe Da Silva.

    *) Feature: startup speedup when using the "hash ... consistent"
       directive in the upstream block.
       Thanks to Wai Keen Woon.

    *) Feature: debug logging into a cyclic memory buffer.

    *) Bugfix: in hash table handling.
       Thanks to Chris West.

    *) Bugfix: in the "proxy_cache_revalidate" directive.

    *) Bugfix: SSL connections might hang if deferred accept or the
       "proxy_protocol" parameter of the "listen" directive were used.
       Thanks to James Hamlin.

    *) Bugfix: the $upstream_response_time variable might contain a wrong
       value if the "image_filter" directive was used.

    *) Bugfix: in integer overflow handling.
       Thanks to RĂ©gis Leroy.

    *) Bugfix: it was not possible to enable SSLv3 with LibreSSL.

    *) Bugfix: the "ignoring stale global SSL error ... called a function
       you should not call" alerts appeared in logs when using LibreSSL.

    *) Bugfix: certificates specified by the "ssl_client_certificate" and
       "ssl_trusted_certificate" directives were inadvertently used to
       automatically construct certificate chains.
