Description Johan Bergström 2014-04-22 23:31:33 UTC
This is an interesting one for us users. Read more on the hyperloglog data structure here:

Renaming 2.8.8 works for me. Some of you might remember me wanting to split out lua. I've been slightly involved in the upcoming upstream lua bump and can unfortunately say that nothing will be done to make this easier. I'll put this on the shelf for now.

As for hiredis; I will do this once hiredis is bumped upstream (issue here: and considered for inclusion in redis. I'll probably create that patch and see how it goes.

Btw, has any of you had issues with the test suite? Every now and then I get a stalled test.

Changes below:

--[ Redis 2.8.9 ] Release date: 22 Apr 2014

# 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 ZRANGEBYLEX, ZLEXCOUNT and
        ZREMRANGEBYLEX, which are documented at
