It's been forever-ago since I last did a memcached release, but I'm a free
man now after selling my company, and hopefully back to being a

So here's the 1st release candidate of memcached 1.1.12:


Let me know if there are problems (in particular with Makefile/install
stuff) or daemonization, or libevent, or pid file writing, etc.

Here's the changelog since 1.1.11 in April 2004:

+       * Date: Thu, 18 Nov 2004 15:25:59 -0600
+         From: David Phillips <electrum at gmail.com>
+       Here is a patch to configure.ac and Makefile.am 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 Makefile.am in the doc directory that installs the man page
+         with man_MANS
+       - modify Makefile.am in the base directory to reference the doc
+         directory using SUBDIRS
+       - modify the AC_CONFIG_FILES macro in configure.ac to output the
+         Makefile in doc
+       * pidfile saving support from Lisa Seelye <lisa at gentoo.org>, sent
+         Jan 13, 2005
+       * don't delete libevent events that haven't been added (the deltimer)
+         patch from Ted Schundler <tschundler at gmail.com>
+       * document -M and -r in manpage (Doug Porter <dsp at dsp.name>)
+       * 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 monamour.ru>
+       * 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 debian.org> for the
+         bug report and demo script.

I guess that isn't so huge, so consider this an invitation to flood me
with patches I haven't applied in the past many months.  (sorry  :/)

I'll do another -rc release if I apply new feature-addition patches.
