50 Downloads in the First Week!

I just uploaded version 0.9.3. I've managed to add samples of CacheBox integration for the Mach-II framework and for Steve Bryant's DataMgr tool (a data access layer). I haven't tested either of these yet. I've also updated the documentation again and added some information about using CacheBox for singleton storage and for managing sessions with it. It's not exactly what I had hoped for in terms of samples, but it'll do. :) I'd still like to get a simple blog or something in there if anybody knows of a small one that caches its content. I haven't found one yet, they're all at least 1MB download and I don't want to add something as a sample that's larger than the CacheBox. Anyway there's a new download on the project home page.

There've been about 50 downloads so far in just the first week. I'm still looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks! :) I know Matt Gersting integrated it into FuseCache for Fusebox applications, and said that he likes the management application so much he's probably going to use CacheBox for most of his caching. So that's one in the win column. ;) Where does everyone else stand? Am I doing a good job with the documentation? Is it working for you? Have you found any bugs? Is it just so good that everyone is speechless? :)

Version 0.9.2 BETA released w/ Fix for duplicated miss-counters

I was finally able to make a few minutes to sit down and seriously investigate the duplicated miss-counters bug mentioned in the release notes of the last 2 point versions. It turned out to be pretty easy to find and fix once I had the time to sit down and test it.

This is getting pretty close to a release candidate. Mostly before I declare it an RC, I'd like to include a sample application in the distribution.

I was hoping to use BlogCFC as a sample application, but it's gotten a lot bigger since the last time I installed it and I'm not wanting to include something that large. It's well more than twice the size of the whole CacheBox distribution as is right now. If you've got an older copy of BlogCFC, or if you know of another smaller open source project that caches content, send me an email. Thanks!

Version 0.9.1 w/ Memcached Support Released

I just incremented the version number to 0.9.1 because I got the memcached storage type coded and tested. Support for memcached requires installation of the cfmemcached project as well. Cool thing about that is it's just a matter of unzipping cfmemcached into your web root and then it's basically ready. You may also have to configure the storage type in the CacheBox Management App to provide the IP addresses of your memcached servers if you're running several distributed servers. I also managed to get the storage type to test to make sure a memcached server connection is available, so if you put in bad IP addresses, it will tell you that the storage type is still not ready. So if it says memcached is ready, it's really ready. :)

I also did a little more work on the documentation, added some information about supported engines, a namespace primer and a bit of clarification about contexts.

Version 0.9 BETA

I just uploaded a zip archive of version 0.9 BETA for CacheBox to the server. As the version number indicates, this is almost ready to be a completed release. There are a handful of issues I'm still working on (and would really appreciate your help with). There is however a reasonably thorough documentation PDF. Here are my release notes about the issues that need to be addressed:

CacheBox version 0.9 BETA 
Release Notes 

- Getting duplicates of miss-counters in the cache query -- need to find the source of this bug -- not cosmetic, despite the fact that the service works - Optimization starts when a memory failure is predicted 3-hours out -- warning message appears when predicted memory failure drops below 2 hours -- warning message seems pretty frequent, considering reducing the timeline - Optimization method in defaultconfig.cfc is incomplete -- I'm sort of guessing at this point about how best to optimize the cache -- The data is there, but I want better algorithms for applying it - Memcached storage type is incomplete -- needs configuration and code to make it work - Not tested on Railo, so no knowing if the Cluster storage type works - Considering additional storage types -- ehCache? -- MS Velocity?
