Thanks a lot! 
I have started using zmq (from Haskell) to implement some networking for a protocol and I was quite pleased with experience so far. Did not implement any form of authent or security though, as we don't really plan to use zmq as is in production. I was wondering whether or not it would make to port what I have to nng given it seems to have more traction nowadays. 
Having TLS support is indeed interesting.

Honestly, for my usecase, they are about the same.

My main work with nng/zmq is implementing the actor model (I have two implementations, one for CHICKEN with nng, and a port for Common Lisp with zmq), so rep/req (and inproc pair for some sync when spawning an actor), nothing terribly complex.

The main benefit and the reason that I personally like zmq more, is CurveZMQ, which saves me having to implement encryption with tweetnacl, for example. Sure, I have the tls transport with nng but that's a bit of a main imo.
