Version highlights

The highlights of this release candidate are:

  • Based on a very recent mainline NGINX core 1.19.9.
  • Many fixes imported from Mike Pall’s upstream LuaJIT repository.
  • Introduce a new macro LUAJIT_TEST_FIXED_ORDERfor fixed-order traversal of lua tables.
  • When lua failed in requesting memory, instead of graceful shutdown, abort() is called.
  • Now the get_ctx_table supports using the ctx table from caller, and that will reduce the cost of creating a new ctx table.
  • Fixed the bug that the metatable was not cleared when clearing the content of lua table when using lua-tablepool.
  • For a better performance when using lua-tablepool, discard the objects when the pool size is larger than the max_pool_size.
  • Implemented ngx.process API API for stream subsystem.
