RcppRedis 0.1.11: Minor Update

A new minor release of RcppRedis arrived on CRAN, the first update since the last release in January of last year.

RcppRedis is one of several packages connecting R to the fabulous Redis in-memory datastructure store (and much more). RcppRedis does not pretend to be feature complete, but it may do some things faster than the other interfaces, and also offers an optional coupling with MessagePack binary (de)serialization via RcppMsgPack. The package has carried production loads for several years now.

This release updates CI to using r-ci, adds a quit() methods, and updates the windows library in builds thanks to a PR by Jeroen which also enables builds under the experimemtal ‘UCRT’ windows flavor.

Changes in version 0.1.11 (2021-06-26)

  • The CI setup was updated to use from r-ci (Dirk).

  • A new function quit can be used to close a connection (Dirk).

  • The windows build was updated to libhiredis 1.0.0, and UCRT support was added (Jeroen in #42).

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release. More information is on the RcppRedis page.
