memcached on Windows status

Patrick Galbraith Published

After the recent release of memcached 1.4.2 on Windows, we have been plowing ahead at full speed to try to get more progress on the Windows platform. Here's a general status:

  • Great progress has been made with libmemcached. All that remains is getting the link of the library working properly using Mingw. Stay tuned for this to be working
  • We have attempted to build memcached on Windows 64-bit. There is a bug with libevent on Windows 64-bit that holds this up which once solved will allow us to release a package.
  • Our next release will have Windows services support, something we are currently working on.

It's our goal to bring to windows the same level of operational functionality and quality that is found with memcached on Linux and other UNIX distributions.
