IMPORTANT NOTICE: [nginx-buildpack] End of Support for NGINX versions 1.16.x after 2020-06-07

Kashyap Vedurmudi

The first release of the NGINX buildpack after 2020-06-07 will no longer include NGINX versions 1.16.x. These NGINX versions will no longer be supported upstream[1]. Please migrate your NGINX apps to supported versions of NGINX before that time.

Note: As 1.16.x is the current stable version of NGINX in the buildpack, the stable NGINX version will be updated to 1.18.x as a part of this removal. If you’d like to use a different NGINX version, please configure your application to select that version[2].

As always, the buildpacks team is happy to answer questions you may have about this deprecation in the #buildpacks Slack channel[3].
