pgmemcache 1.2 beta is out. This release makes some notable changes to the pgmemcache API, including:

  • There is now no need to call memcache_init, and that function has been removed, as has memcache_free
  • A default list of memcached servers can now be specified via the newly-added pgmemcache.default_servers custom GUC variable
  • There are some new functions, like memcache_server_list and memcache_server_remove
  • Various deprecated or broken functions have been removed, including memcache_flush_all(TEXT), and the 1-argument versions of memcache_add, memcache_set, and memcache_replace

The release notes have more information. Note that I haven't had a chance yet to update all the documentation for these changes (e.g. seanc's slides on pgmemcache are becomingly increasingly out of date).

Also, there's a bug in libmemcache that effects the new SRF memcache_server_list: connected servers were not properly marked as such by libmemcache. I've fixed this in the latest libmemcache SVN, but I haven't had a chance to roll 1.4.0rc3 yet.
