Nginx 1.20.0 Is Released

Nginx developer Maxim Dounin has announced a new stable release of the by-far most popular web server on the Internet with a brief change-log listing "1.20.x stable branch" as the only changes.

It's better than nothing but really misses the point that powers open source: enabling users to make a change to the software they're using. Some other popular services powered by Open Source software, do include the tools used to operate/deploy their service. Pause for applause. But that’s also insufficient to actually enable users to become contributors effectively. Read more
