Redis 2.6.15

Redis 2.6.15 has been released, bringing the following changes (take a look at the Changelog) :

  • [FIX] Improved expired keys collection algorithm. Even under heavy load keys to be expired can’t accumulate because of lack of CPU time.
  • [FIX] Fixed Issue #1240, ZUNIONSTORE could lead to wrong result.
  • [NEW] redis-benchmark improvements.
  • [NEW] dict.c API wrong usage detection.

Be aware that redis-benchmark released with 2.6.15 features non backward compatible change in the way the random arguments are specified, use the --help option for more information.

The upgrade urgency is moderate : Upgrade ASAP only if you experience issues related to the expired keys collection algorithm, or if you use the ZUNIONSTORE command.

The packages are now available for both Debian 7.0 “Wheezy” and Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” on both amd64 and i386 architectures.
