So as you see, there's a 1.2.4-rc1 out today. There've been a few
changes since in trunk (fix a few bugs; shouldn't be a big deal).
I have one standing issue right now which I haven't tracked down:
Take hg.tangent.org's libmemcached from trunk, and memcached from trunk.
Build memcached in threaded mode, start it with defaults.
set environment variable like ... MEMCACHED_SERVERS="127.0.0.1:11211"
the run the 'make test' from libmemcached. On my core2duo at least,
memcached'll either spin or segfault during the generate_nonblock tests.
Memcached 1.2.2 in threaded mode passes the tests, so it's soemthing
since then. If someone's enterprising do a bisect and figure it out for
Otherwise, I have no known issues. Since the ML was down until now I
really hope some folks check out -rc1 or trunk and find some bugs.
Paul; Either of us can finish the release, doesn't matter to me. Help
platform testing, and more tests are always good. We missed a lot of
silly bugs in merging all of the append/prepend/cas nuttyness.
