Nginx 1.9.5 brings built-in HTTP/2.0 support, replaces SPDY

Nginx 1.9.5 will ship this month shipped 9/22 with new HTTP/2.0 support:

It replaces the SPDY module since they cannot be both active at the same time. HTTP/2.0 spec was finalized May 14th 2015 so it can now be implemented and standardized.

HTTP/2.0 features only work over HTTPS (tls/ssl) connections in most browsers which is unfortunate since virtually all WordPress based websites could benefit from the speedup.

There is a catch in that your server must use OpenSSL 1.0.2 or newer (or be backported with ALPN support ala Redhat)

Nginx must be compiled with

./configure --with-http_v2_module (etc.)

and then in your Server {} block replace spdy with http2

server {
    listen 443 ssl http2;

This demo claims to demonstrate how HTTP/2.0 is faster for many small elements on a page:

Firefox 36+, Chrome 40+ and IE11 (on Windows 10) currently support HTTP/2.0 over TLS

Nginx 1.2.7 released

A new version of Nginx stable branch has appeared today with a rather long changelog:


When building manually, remember to update pcre, currently at 8.32

stuff I would have wanted to see at WordCamp SF 2008

Apparently they crammed it all into one day this year and the tech stuff was held separately (downstairs) from the general stuff (don’t want those devs and general users to mingle, ruh roh!)

I don’t fly so I was hoping for some audio or video recordings. I found a live video feed from some bloggers upstairs but nothing downstairs (at least not that I could find). I need to hunt down the slideshows for Crazyhorse, BuddyPress, Nginx etc. Finding a schedule of the tech stuff would probably be a good start, I found one for the general stuff upstairs but not downstairs. ZDnet covered only the non-dev side, but in detail.

Was there *no* bbPress presentation this year at WordCamp? Really?
Twitter went insane with WordCamp stuff!
