nginx从1.11.5版本开始默认自动支持ipv6,所以不再需要--with-ipv6编译选项

ipv6的网站有哪些?截止20181105
默认80端口只支持ipv6配置:
listen 80 default;
listen [::]:80 default ipv6only=on;
可能有多个ipv6地址,这样配置:
listen 80;   
listen [::]:80;
监听某一个ipv6地址:
listen [2600:3000:4000:1000:101]:80;
支持ssl:
listen [2600:3000:4000:1000:101]:443;
利用curl来测试:
$ echo -n "Testing IPv4: "; \
   curl -4 -s www.dmuth.org/host.txt; \
   echo -n "Testing IPv6: "; \
   curl -6 -s www.dmuth.org/host.txt
Testing www.dmuth.org with IPv4...Host: dmuth.org
 
Testing www.dmuth.org with IPv6...Host: dmuth.org
nginx从1.11.5版本开始默认自动支持ipv6,所以不再需要--with-ipv6编译选项
可以通过https://ipv6-test.com/validate.php 来测试网站是否支持ipv6

*) Bugfix: in configure tests.
Thanks to Piotr Sikora.
Changes with nginx 1.11.2 05 Jul 2016

the --with-md5 and --with-sha1 configure options were canceled.
*) Feature: variables support in the stream module.
*) Feature: the ngx_stream_map_module.
*) Feature: the ngx_stream_return_module.
*) Feature: a port can be specified in the "proxy_bind", "fastcgi_bind",
"memcached_bind", "scgi_bind", and "uwsgi_bind" directives.
*) Feature: now nginx uses the IP_BIND_ADDRESS_NO_PORT socket option
when available.
*) Bugfix: a segmentation fault might occur in a worker process when
using HTTP/2 and the "proxy_request_buffering" directive.
*) Bugfix: the "Content-Length" request header line was always added to
requests passed to backends, including requests without body, when
using HTTP/2.
*) Bugfix: "http request count is zero" alerts might appear in logs when
using HTTP/2.
*) Bugfix: unnecessary buffering might occur when using the "sub_filter"
directive; the issue had appeared in 1.9.4.

*) Security: a segmentation fault might occur in a worker process while
writing a specially crafted request body to a temporary file
(CVE-2016-4450); the bug had appeared in 1.3.9.
Changes with nginx 1.11.0 24 May 2016
*) Feature: the "transparent" parameter of the "proxy_bind",
"fastcgi_bind", "memcached_bind", "scgi_bind", and "uwsgi_bind"
directives.
*) Feature: the $request_id variable.

method is used.
*) Feature: the "ssl_certificate" and "ssl_certificate_key" directives
can be specified multiple times to load certificates of different
types (for example, RSA and ECDSA).
*) Feature: the "ssl_ecdh_curve" directive now allows specifying a list
of curves when using OpenSSL 1.0.2 or newer; by default a list built
into OpenSSL is used.

rejecting requests to a virtual server different from one negotiated
during an SSL handshake; this improves interoperability with some
HTTP/2 clients when using client certificates.
*) Change: HTTP/2 clients can now start sending request body
immediately; the "http2_body_preread_size" directive controls size of
the buffer used before nginx will start reading client request body.

was used and client request body was not fully read; the bug had
appeared in 1.9.14.

when using HTTP/2.

Changes with nginx 1.9.13 29 Mar 2016
*) Change: non-idempotent requests (POST, LOCK, PATCH) are no longer
passed to the next server by default if a request has been sent to a
backend; the "non_idempotent" parameter of the "proxy_next_upstream"
directive explicitly allows retrying such requests.
*) Feature: the ngx_http_perl_module can be built dynamically.
*) Feature: UDP support in the stream module.
*) Feature: the "aio_write" directive.

Linux or Solaris and a file being sent was changed during sending.

*) Bugfix: "CreateFile() failed" errors when creating temporary files on
Windows.
Changes with nginx 1.9.12 24 Feb 2016
*) Feature: Huffman encoding of response headers in HTTP/2.

64 CPUs.

appeared in 1.9.11.
Thanks to Piotr Sikora.
*) Bugfix: nginx could not be built statically with OpenSSL on Linux;
the bug had appeared in 1.9.11.
*) Bugfix: the "add_header … always" directive with an empty value did
not delete "Last-Modified" and "ETag" header lines from error
responses.

*) Security: invalid pointer dereference might occur during DNS server
response processing if the "resolver" directive was used, allowing an
attacker who is able to forge UDP packets from the DNS server to
cause segmentation fault in a worker process (CVE-2016-0742).
*) Security: use-after-free condition might occur during CNAME response
processing if the "resolver" directive was used, allowing an attacker
who is able to trigger name resolution to cause segmentation fault in
a worker process, or might have potential other impact
(CVE-2016-0746).
*) Security: CNAME resolution was insufficiently limited if the
"resolver" directive was used, allowing an attacker who is able to
trigger arbitrary name resolution to cause excessive resource
consumption in worker processes (CVE-2016-0747).
*) Feature: the "auto" parameter of the "worker_cpu_affinity" directive.
*) Bugfix: the "proxy_protocol" parameter of the "listen" directive did
not work with IPv6 listen sockets.

possible to use the HTTP/2 protocol even if the "http2" parameter of
the "listen" directive was not specified.
*) Bugfix: in the ngx_http_v2_module.
Changes with nginx 1.9.6 27 Oct 2015
