- update to 2.8.13
  * [FIX] CLIENT KILL minor backward compatibility fixes.
    (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [FIX] Enable HAVE_ATOMIC for PowerPC. (Matt Stancliff)
  * [FIX] More robust PSYNC and AOF rewrites tests.
    (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [FIX] Solaris build fixed.
    (Matt Stancliff, Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] The new latency monitoring feature, as documented at

          (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] The COMMAND command, exposing the Redis command table
          as an API. (Matt Stancliff)
  * [NEW] Update used memory with C11 __atomic. (Matt Stancliff)
- additional changes from 2.8.12
    scripts no longer makes the selected DB to be set in the
    calling client.  So Lua can still use SELECT, but the client
    calling the script will remain set to the original DB. Thix
    fixes an issue with Redis replication of Lua scripts that
    called SELECT without reverting the selected DB to the original
    one. (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [FIX] Sentinel failover was instalbe if the master was detected
    as available during the failover (especially during manual
    failovers) because of an implementation error (lack of checking
    of SRI_PROMOTED flag). (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [FIX] Cancel SHUTDOWN if initial AOF is being written.
    (Matt Stancliff)
  * [FIX] Sentinel: bind source address for outcoming connections.
    (Matt Stancliff).
  * [FIX] Less timing sensitive Sentinel tests.
    (Salvatore Sanfilippo).
  * [NEW] redis-cli --intrinsic-latency stopped with SIGINT still
    reports stats (Matt Stancliff)
  * [NEW] Sentinels broadcast an HELLO message ASAP after a
    failover in order to reach a consistent state faster (before it
    relied for periodic HELLO messages). (Salvatore Sanfilippo).
  * [NEW] Jemalloc updated to 3.6.0. (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] CLIENT LIST speedup. (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] CLIENT LIST new unique incremental ID to every client.
    (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] ROLE command added. (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] CLIENT KILL new form to kill by client type and ID (see
    doc at for more info). (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] Sentinel now disconnects clients when instances are
    reconfigured (see
    (Salvatore Sanfilippo)
  * [NEW] Hiredis update to latest version. (Matt Stancliff)

- additional changes from 2.8.11
  # UPGRADE URGENCY: HIGH if you use Lua scripting, LOW otherwise.
  * [FIX] A previous fix for Lua -> Redis numerical precision
    enhancement introduced a new problem. In Redis 2.8.10 commands
    called from Lua passing a string that "looks like" a very large
    number, may actually use as argument the string converted as a
    float. This bug is now fixed.
  * [FIX] Now commands other than *PUSH* adding elements to a list
    will be able to awake clients blocked in a blocking POP
  * [FIX] Cygwin compilation fixes.

- additional changes from 2.8.10
  # UPGRADE URGENCY: HIGH if you use min-slaves-to-write option.
  * [FIX] IMPORTANT! A min-slaves-to-write option active in a slave
    totally prevented the slave from acception the master stream of
    commands.  This release includes testes for
    min-slaves-to-write, and a fix for this issue.
  * [FIX] Sometimes DEL returned 1 for already expired keys. Fixed.
  * [FIX] Fix test false positive because new osx 'leaks' output.
  * [FIX] PFCOUNT HLL cache invalidation fixed: no wrong value was
    reported but the cache was not used at all, leading to lower
  * [FIX] Accept(2) multiple clients per readable-event invocation,
    and better processing of I/O while loading or busy running a
    timedout script.  Basically now the LOADING / BUSY errors are
    reported at a decent speed.
  * [FIX] A softwaer watchdog crash fixed.
  * [FIX] Fixed a Lua -> Redis numerical precision loss.
  * [NEW] Lua scripting engine speed improved.
  * [NEW] Sentinel generates one new event for humans to understand
    better what is happening during a failover:
    +config-update-from.  Also the time at which a failover will be
    re-attempted is logged.
- additional changes from 2.8.9
  # UPGRADE URGENCY: LOW, only new features introduced, no bugs fixed.
  * [NEW] The HyperLogLog data structure. You can read more about
    it in this blog post.
  * [NEW] The Sorted Set data type has now support for
    lexicographic range queries, check the new commands

- additional changes from 2.8.8
  # UPGRADE URGENCY: HIGH for Redis, LOW for Sentinel. There is a
    potentially critical bug fix causing data loss in Redis but it
    requires a combination of disk full and the use of the SHUTDOWN
  * [FIX] Fixed data loss when SHUTDOWN was used with a disk full
  * [FIX] Fixed a memory leak in the SORT syntax error processing.
  * [FIX] When Sentinel down-after-milliseconds parameter is
    modified at runtime now it gets propagated to all the slaves
    and sentinel instances of the master.
  * [FIX] `` script finally fixed.
  * [FIX] Different fixes to maxclients handling.
  * [NEW] Sentinels are now able to send update messages in a
    peer-to-peer fashion even if no Redis instances are available.
    Now the Sentinel liveness property that the most updated
    configuration in a given partition is propagated to all the
    Sentinels is extended to partitions without reachable
  * [NEW] Sentinel safety properties are now ensured in a
    crash-recovery system model since some state is persisted on
    disk before replying to other nodes, and reloaded at startup.
  * [NEW] Sentinel now uses CLIENT SETNAME so that it is easy to
    identify Sentinels using CLIENT LIST among other clients.
  * [NEW] Sentinel failure detection and reconnection code
  * [NEW] Use all 24 bits (instead of 22) for the Redis objects LRU
    field.  Note that the new LRU algorithm using eviction pools
    was not backported from unstable for safery / code maturity
  * [NEW] Majory speedup for the INFO command (it is now 6 times
  * [NEW] More Sentinel unit tests.
  * [NEW] New command DEBUG ERROR returns the specified error.
    Example: DEBUG ERROR "LOADING database". This is handy to write
    Redis client libraries unit tests.
  * [NEW] redis-cli now supports multi-line editing via updated
    linenoise lib.
  Thanks to Matt Stancliff and Jan-Erik Rediger for the work done
  in the context of this release.
- additional changes from 2.8.7
  # UPGRADE URGENCY: LOW for Redis, LOW for Sentinel. However this
    release adds new features so users may want to upgrade in order
    to exploit the new functionalities.
  * [FIX] Sometimes the absolute config file path was obtained in a
    wrong way.  This happened when there was a "dir" directive
    inside the config file and at the same time the configuration
    file was given as a relative path to redis-server or
    redis-sentinel executables.
  * [FIX] redis-cli: Automatically enter --slave mode when SYNC or
    PSYNC are called during an interactive session.
  * [FIX] Sentinel "IDONTKNOW" error removed as it does not made
    sense with the new Sentinel design. This error was actually a
    fix for a design error in the first implementation of Sentinel.
  * [FIX] Sentinel: added a missing exit() call to abort after
    config file checks at startup. This error was introduced with
    an improvement in a previous 2.8 release.
  * [FIX] BITCOUNT: fixed unaligned access causing issues in sparc
    and other archs not capable of dealing with unaligned accesses.
    This also makes the code faster in archs where unaligned
    accesses are allowed.
  * [FIX] Sentinel: better nodes fail over start time
    desynchronization to avoid split-brain during the voting
    process needed to get authorization to fail over. This means
    the system is less likely to need to retry and will fail over
    faster. No changes in behavior / correctness.
  * [FIX] Force INFO used_memory_peak to match peak memory. This
    generated some confusion among users even if it was not an
    actual bug.
  * [NEW] Sentinel unit tests and framework. More tests needed and
    units must be improved in order to have less false positives,
    but it is a start and features a debugging console that is
    useful to fix tests or to inspect bugs causing tests failures.
  * [NEW] New Sentinel events: +/-monitor and +set used to monitor
    when an instance to monitor is added or removed, or when a
    configuration is modified via SENTINEL SET.
  * [NEW] Redis-cli updated to use SCAN instead of random sampling
    via RANDOMKEY in order to implement --bigkeys feature. Moreover
    the implementation now supports pipelining and reports more
    information at the end of the scan. Much faster, much better. A
    special thank you to Michael Grunder for this improvement.
  * [NEW] redis-cli now supports a new --intrinsic-latency mode
    that is able to meter the latency of a system due to kernel /
    hypervisor.  How to use it is explained at
  * [NEW] New command BITPOS: find first bit set or clear in a
  * [NEW] CONFIG REWRITE calls are now logged.

- update to 2.8.6
  Redis 2.6 is mostly a strict subset of 2.8. However there are a 
  few things that you should be aware of:
  The following commands changed behavior:
    * SORT with ALPHA now sorts according to local collation locale
      if no STORE option is used.
    * ZADD/ZINCRBY are now able to accept a bigger range of values
      as valid scores, that is, all the values you may end having
      as a result of calling ZINCRBY multiple times.
    * Many errors are now prefixed by a more specific error code
      instead of the generic -ERR, for example -WRONGTYPE, -NOAUTH, ...
    * PUBLISH called inside Lua scripts is now correctly propagated
      to slaves.
  The following redis.conf and CONFIG GET / SET parameters changed:
    * logfile now uses the empty string in order to log to standard
      output, so 'logfile stdout' is now invalid, use 'logfile ""'
  The following INFO fields changed format in a non-backward compatible way:
    * The list of slaves in INFO is now in field=value format.
    Redis 2.8 can be used as slave for Redis 2.6, but doing this is
    only a good idea for the short amount of time needed to upgrade
    your servers.  We suggest to update both master and slaves at
    about the same time.
  For all the details see
- updated redis-conf.patch to apply cleanly again

- drop skip-aof-test.patch

Thu Aug  8 02:07:54 UTC 2013 -

  it seems adding procps to the buildrequires also fixed that test.

Wed Aug  7 14:37:30 UTC 2013 -

- build require procps to get "ps" which is needed for the cleanup
  of the redis processes launched by the testsuite.

Wed Aug  7 14:31:17 UTC 2013 -

- update to 2.6.14
  UPGRADE URGENCY: HIGH because of the following two issues:
      * Lua scripting + Replication + AOF in slaves problem (see Issue #1164).
      * AOF + expires possible race condition (see Issue #1079).

  * [FIX] AOF bug: expire could be removed from key on AOF rewrite.
  * [FIX] Allow writes from scripts called by AOF loading in read-only slaves.
  * [FIX] Sentinel: parse new verison of INFO replication output correctly.
  * [NEW] Reset masterauth if an empty string is configured.

    under /var/run/redis/$
  * Each instance has its own log files
    under /var/log/redis/$INSTANCE.log
  * Instances may be started or stopped individually passing a
    second argument to the init script
  * Do not create an active default.conf, rather use an
    .example suffix

- updated to 2.2.7
  * Fixed bug #543-2 (the issue was reopened with a completely
    different report) that caused Redis to randomly crash on list
    push performed against lists with other clients blocked with BLPOP
    (or variants).
  (changes from 2.2.6)
  * Fixed bug #543. If you saw Redis instances crashing on List
    operations (only happening with a non-default max entry size
    ziplist setting in redis.conf) it was almost certainly this
  * Fixed a bug with replication where SLAVEOF NO ONE caused
    a slave to close the connection with all its slaves.
  (changes from 2.2.5)
  * Fixed a crash occurring when loading an AOF containing
    the SPOP command.

  * Return value of GETRANGE / SUBSTR is now an empty string if the
    interval specified is not valid, or the key does not exist. Was
    a null bulk reply before, but this is against the Redis way.
- fix the path to the log file in the conf patch to match the rest
  of the package
- created log dir

- update to version 1.2.6
  fixes two critical replication bugs, and a few improvements.
  - Fixed Issue 207
    ( (broken
    replication with binary arguments not in the last position with
    the MSET command or any other command issued with new
    multi-bulk protocol)
  - Fixed Issue 174
    ( (temp
    names collisions producing broken slave-side .rdb files)
  - Redis-cli backported from Redis master, with interactive mode,
    line editing via the linenoise library, auth ability, and much
  - ZRANGEBYSCORE now supports WITHSCORES as well (backported from
  - A simplified version of redis-stat (from redis tools) added.
- update to version 1.2.5
  fixes a replication bug: multiple slaves connecting to the same
  master could lead to random crashes or corruptions.
- use PROF parameter to pass in optflags

Sun Mar  7 17:21:53 UTC 2010 -

  - Support for large files in 32 bit targets, very important when saving 
      very large databases or when using the Append Only File (when Redis 
      was compiled for 64 bit target there was no problem).
  - Now 'make 32bit' uses -m32 instead of Apple-specific -arch
  - Stack trace fixed for some Linux targets
