Release Notes 3.19.6
These release notes contain information about new features, improvements, known issues, and bug fixes in the NGINX Controller API Management Module.
We encourage you to install the latest version of the NGINX Controller APIM module to take advantage of the newest features and updates.
Technical support is provided for earlier versions that were released within two years of the current release.
Upgrading from NGINX Controller 3.x to NGINX Controller API Management Module 3.18 or later
NGINX Controller 3.x includes the NGINX Controller Application Delivery Module (ADC) and NGINX Controller API Management Module (APIM).
Starting with APIM 3.18, the ADC and APIM Modules are released independently on different schedules.
If you’ve installed NGINX Controller 3.18 or earlier before July 2021, we recommend you use the ADC Module going forward.
However, if you want to upgrade to APIM 3.18 or later, we recommend you upgrade to NGINX Controller 3.17 first.

Take note of the following considerations when upgrading to this version of the NGINX Controller API Management Module:
After upgrading NGINX Controller, make sure to upgrade the NGINX Controller Agent too.
If you’re upgrading NGINX Controller on a multi-node cluster, run the
update.shscript on each node individually – the order in which you update the nodes doesn’t matter.Warning:
Never update the control nodes in parallel. Doing so may result in race conditions for certain jobs, such as database migrations, and may cause the cluster to become unavailable.
- This release includes stability and performance improvements.
NGINX API Management Module 3.19.6 adds support for NGINX Plus R26, R27, R28 and R29.
