redix v0.9.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-01-15 // about 2 years ago
  • 💥 Breaking changes

    • Bring Redix.PubSub into Redix. Pub/Sub functionality lived in a separate library, redix_pubsub. Now, that functionality has been moved into Redix. This means that if you use redix_pubsub and upgrade your Redix version to 0.9, you will use the redix_pubsub version of Redix.PubSub. If you also upgrade your redix_pubsub version, redix_pubsub will warn and avoid compiling Redix.PubSub so you can use the latest version in Redix. In general, if you upgrade Redix to 0.9 or later just drop the redix_pubsub dependency and make sure your application works with the latest Redix.PubSub API (the message format changed slightly in recent versions).

    • Add support for Redis Sentinel.

    • Don't raise Redix.Error errors on non-bang variants of functions. This means that for example Redix.command/3 won't raise a Redix.Error exception in case of Redis errors (like wront typing) and will return that error instead. In general, if you're pattern matching on {:error, _} to handle connection errors (for example, to retry after a while), now specifically match on {:error, %Redix.ConnectionError{}}. If you want to handle all possible errors the same way, keep matching on {:error, _}.

    🐛 Bug fixes and improvements

    • Fix a bug that wouldn't let you use Redis URIs without host or port.
    • Don't ignore the :timeout option when connecting to Redis.
