Our stable releases are cut annually midyear. So, 1.5.X will become 1.6 in
a few months.

However, there is a further complexity in that some of the features in the
1.5.X line are only available in our commercial release of NGINX Plus.
Sticky is one of those directives. I'm sorry that's not more clear in the
documentation. We're working to update the visuals and information layout
in our documentation to make that easier to parse at a glance.

If you have further questions about the commercial release, we'd be happy
to help but I'd ask you contact me off the FOSS list and I'll connect you
to the right person.
