Redis 2.6.12

Redis 2.6.12 has been released, bringing the following changes (take a look at the Changelog) :

  • [BUGFIX] redis-cli --bigkeys: don’t crash with empty DB.
  • [BUGFIX] stop-writes-on-bgsave-error now works in redis.conf
  • [BUGFIX] Don’t crash at startup if RDB is there but can’t be opened.
  • [BUGFIX] Initial value for master_link_down_since_seconds is now huge.
  • [BUGFIX] Allow SELECT while loading the DB.
  • [BUGFIX] Don’t replicate/AOF an empty MULTI/EXEC if the transaction is empty or containing just read-only commands.
  • [BUGFIX] EXPIRE should not be able to resurrect keys (see issue #1026).
  • [IMPROVED] Extended SET back ported from Redis 2.8 / unstable. See for more information.
  • [IMPROVED] Test suite improved.

The upgrade urgency is moderate, nothing very critical but a few non trivial bugs.

The packages are now available for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures.
