Nobody gave me any feedback on the 1.1.12-rc1 release I did somewhat
recently so I'm going to assume it's cool.  Here's the 1.1.12 final
release, including also Don's recent patch.


ChangeLog since 1.1.11:

        * patch from Don MacAskill <don at> 'flush_all' doesn't
        seem to work properly.  Basically, if you try to add a key which
        is present, but expired, the store fails but the old key is no
        longer expired.

        * release 1.1.12

        * Date: Thu, 18 Nov 2004 15:25:59 -0600
          From: David Phillips <electrum at>
        Here is a patch to and to put the man page in
        the correct location.  Trying to install the man page from a
        subdirectory results in the subdirectory being used in the install
        path (it tries to install to doc/memcached.1).  This is the correct
        thing to  do:

        - create a in the doc directory that installs the man page
          with man_MANS
        - modify in the base directory to reference the doc
          directory using SUBDIRS
        - modify the AC_CONFIG_FILES macro in to output the
          Makefile in doc

        * pidfile saving support from Lisa Seelye <lisa at>, sent
          Jan 13, 2005

        * don't delete libevent events that haven't been added (the deltimer)
          patch from Ted Schundler <tschundler at>

        * document -M and -r in manpage (Doug Porter <dsp at>)

        * fix buffer overflow in items.c with 250 byte keys along with
          other info on the same line going into a 256 byte char[].
          thanks to Andrei Nigmatulin <anight at>

        * immediate deletes weren't being unlinked a few seconds,
          preventing "add" commands to the same key in that time period.
          thanks to Michael Alan Dorman <mdorman at> for the
          bug report and demo script.
