        Hi Ivan, we now run Varnish 4.1.3 backported from Yakkety on the Xenial instances with the official Varnish varnish-modules repository compiled for Hypernode. We only included modules that people actually used on the platform. You can check out our packaging here: https://github.com/ByteInternet/varnish-modules

        If you need some other modules than the one currently available please let us know.

        Currently we include:
        - libvmod-cookie
        - libvmod-header
        - libvmod-geoip (not in the official bundle because it depends on external libs)

        Previously on Precise we also included libvmod-querystring but we noticed that no one used it so we left it out for now until someone requests it. We're deploying this across all nodes later this week.

        The biggest benefit of 4.1 upgrades with this VMOD set is to have officially Varnish supported ones. At the moment the vmods from this suite are installed individually on 4.0, but they are not officially maintained by Varnish team.

        Hi Ivan,

        Are there specific features from the VMOD collection you are looking for? Would installing those modules in the current 4.0 installation also solve your problem? I don't think upgrading to Varnish 4.1 is very high on our list of priorities but perhaps we can look into adding some more VMODs.
