New Features

RTSP and chunked input backports from 2.1 for the HTTP router

The --http-manage-rtsp and ``–http-chunked-input` have been backported from 2.1 allowing the HTTP router to detect RTSP and chunked requests automatically. This is useful for the upcoming https://github.com/unbit/uwsgi-realtime plugin.


This custom hook allows you to call actions after each fork().

fallback to trollius for asyncio plugin

If you build the asyncio plugin for python2, a fallback to the trollius module will be tried.

This feature has gotten basically zero test coverage, so every report (bug or success alike) is welcome.

added sweep_on_full, clear_on_full and no_expire to --cache2

Three new options for --cache2 have been added for improving the caching expire strategies:

  • sweep_on_full will call a sweep (delete all of the expired items) as soon as the cache became full

  • clear_on_full will completely clear the cache as soon as it is full

  • no_expire forces the cache to not generate a cache sweeper thread, delegating items removal to the two previous options

backported wait-for-fs/mountpoints from 2.1

  • --wait-for-fs <path> suspend the uWSGI startup until a file/directory is available

  • --wait-for-file <path> suspend the uWSGI startup until a file is available

  • --wait-for-dir <path> suspend the uWSGI startup until a directory is available

  • --wait-for-mountpoint <path> suspend the uWSGI startup until a mountpoint is available

improved the offload api (backport from 2.1)

uWSGI 2.0.8 is compatible with the upcoming https://github.com/unbit/uwsgi-realtime plugin that allows the use of realtime features (like websockets or audio/video streaming) using the uWSGI offload engine + Redis publish/subscribe.

Allows building plugins from remote sources as embedded

The UWSGI_EMBED_PLUGINS environment variable has been extended to support remote plugins. As an example you can build a monolithic uwsgi binary with the Avahi and realtime plugins as:

UWSGI_EMBED_PLUGINS="avahi=https://github.com/20tab/uwsgi-avahi,realtime=https://github.com/unbit/uwsgi-realtime" make

Automatically manage HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO

Albeit a new standard is available in the HTTP world for forwarded sessions (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7239) this release adds support for the X-Forwarded-Proto header, automatically setting the request scheme accordingly.
