Noteworthy Changes Wheezy => Jessie
===================================

* Disabled SSLv3 by default

  After POODLE we followed suit and disabled SSLv3 by default.

* /var/log/nginx permissions

  /var/log/nginx/ is now not readable by default (www-data:adm 750),
  If you depend on that you can add a manual override with dpkg-statoverride.

* New upgrade & rotate initscript commands

  You can now upgrade the nginx binary on the fly with /etc/init.d/nginx upgrade
  (Read more on http://nginx.org/en/docs/control.html#upgrade)

* Synced configuration files are with upstream

  Unfortunately that might break existing configuration for some users, especially
  fastcgi scripts. /usr/share/doc/nginx-common/NEWS.Debian.gz contains some
  more information about the changes made.

* Changed document root to /var/www/html

  The default document root has now changed to /var/www/html/.

* Added a snippets directory

  A /etc/nginx/snippets has been added, it contains common configuration
  stangas. For now we ship a snakeoil.conf (self-signed ssl) and a simple
  fastcgi-php.conf.

* Switched to graceful stop

  Both systemd and the initscript's stop function try to graceful stop
  nginx (SIGQUIT) before stopping it fast (SIGTERM). That allows nginx to
  serve connected clients before shutting down.

* Dropped nginx-naxsi

  Packaging naxsi was not trivial and, unfortunately, none of the
  maintainers uses it. That's the reason nginx-naxsi was not in a good
  shape and we are not feeling comfortable to release and support it.
