Spyglass is a very fast Clojure client for Memcached (as well as Couchbase and Kestrel) built on top of SpyMemcached.

1.1.0-beta3 is a preview release that has breaking changes in clojurewerkz.spyglass.cache.

Changes between 1.1.0-beta2 and 1.1.0-beta3

Clojure 1.5 By Default

Spyglass now depends on org.clojure/clojure version 1.5.1. It is still compatible with Clojure 1.3+ and if your project.clj depends on a different version, it will be used, but 1.5 is the default now.

We encourage all users to upgrade to 1.5, it is a drop-in replacement for the majority of projects out there.

Asynchronous Cache Store

Spyglass now ships both sync and async implementations of clojure.core.cache.

To instantiate async store, use clojurewerkz.spyglass.cache/async-spyglass-cache-factory. clojurewerkz.spyglass.cache/spyglass-cache-factory was renamed to clojurewerkz.spyglass.cache/sync-spyglass-cache-factory.

Fix Authentication Support

clojurewerkz.spyglass.client/text-connection and clojurewerkz.spyglass.client/bin-connection no longer fail when credentials are passed in.

Empty gets Responses

clojurewerkz.spyglass.client/gets now correctly handles responses for keys that do not exist.

GH issue: #4.
