This is an important spot for the Go, but it also makes you wonder what's next. Will Go really burst in top league of programming languages and leave JavaScript and PHP behind? We will see. 

The TIOBE Programming Community index is an indicator of the popularity of programming languages updated once a month.The rates are based on the number of skilled coders world-wide, learning cources and third party vendors. Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu are used to calculate the ratings. It is important to note that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

In open access, a beta version of the NGINX Unit 1.3 application server was released. Developers continued to expand the ability to run web applications in Python, PHP, Perl, Ruby and Go. The project code is written in C and is distributed under the Apache 2.0 license.

Features

Version 1.3 eliminates the problems with handling errors when installing HTTP connections.

Among other changes:

  • parameter max_body_size to limit the size of the body of the request;
  • new parameters for setting timeouts when setting up an HTTP connection:
         "settings": {
              "http": {
                  "header_read_timeout": 30,
                  "body_read_timeout": 30,
                  "send_timeout": 30,
                  "idle_timeout": 180,
                  "max_body_size": 8388608
              }
          },
  • automatic use of the Bundler where possible in the Ruby module;
  • http.Flusher interface in the module for the Go language;
  • The possibility of using characters in the UTF-8 encoding in the request headers.

The first version of the NGINX 1.1 application server was released in mid-April 2018. Under the control of NGINX Unit, several applications can be executed simultaneously in different programming languages, the startup parameters of which can be changed dynamically without the need to edit the configuration files and restart.
