nginx hits 1.0(.0)

nginx, my webserver du joir, announced its 1.0.0 launch today. Along with the announcement, Igor has also posted a public SVN repository to grab the code from (which seems to include a lot of historical versions, if not the whole thing!)

He hasn't setup a web-based SVN option yet (cough, cough, I bet it would be if nginx supported SVN's DAV needs :)) - but you can hit it up using a native SVN client: svn://svn.nginx.org - note, I would only grab "/nginx/trunk" as otherwise you'll get a few years worth of code, if not the entire nine years.

At first I thought this was a joke, seeing the announcement for 1.0.0 - sounds like it just started. But one must remember, he's always used pre-1.0 for past versions.

Update:

MTecknology maintains a PPA and has already built a package for 1.0.0. The quick and dirty method to update:

apt-get install python-software-properties
add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/stable
apt-get update

This will provide you a handful of new packages, by default the "nginx" package is a dummy package that will provide "nginx-full" and should be the only one you really need to care about.
