Predis v2.0.0-beta.1 Release Notes

Release Date: 2022-05-26 // about 1 month ago
    • โฌ‡๏ธ Dropped support for PHP 7.1 and older

    • Accepted values for some client options have changed, this is the new list of accepted values:

      • aggregate: callable returning an aggregate connection.
      • cluster: string value (predis, redis), callable returning an aggregate connection.
      • replication: string value (predis, sentinel), callable returning an aggregate connection.
      • commands: command factory, named array mapping command IDs to PHP classes, callable returning a command factory or a named array.
      • connections: connection factory, callable object returning a connection factory, named array mapping URI schemes to PHP classes, string identifying a supported combination of configurations for the connection factory.
      • prefix: string value, command processor, callable.
      • exceptions: boolean.

    Note that both the cluster and replication options now return a closure acting as initializer instead of an aggregate connection instance.

    • The connections client option now accepts certain string values identifying certain combinations of configurations for the connection factory. Currenlty this is used to provide a short way to configure Predis to load our phpiredis based connection backends simply, accepted values are:

      • phpiredis-stream maps Phpiredis\Connection\PhpiredisStreamConnection to tcp, redis, unix URI schemes.
      • phpiredis-socket maps Phpiredis\Connection\PhpiredisSocketConnection to tcp, redis, unix URI schemes.
      • phpiredis-stream is simply an alias of phpiredis-stream.
    • โž• Added the new Predis\Cluster\Hash\PhpiredisCRC16 class using ext-phpiredis to speed-up the generation of the CRC16 hash of keys for redis-cluster. Predis automatically uses this class when ext-phpiredis is loaded, but it is possible to configure the hash generator using the new crc16 client option (accepted values predis, phpiredis or an hash generator instance).

    • Replication backends now use the role parameter instead of alias in order to distinguish the role of a connection. Accepted values are master, slave and, for redis-sentinel, sentinel. This led to a redesign of how connections can be retrieved from replication backends: the method getConnectionById() now retrieves a connection only by its ID (ip:port pair), to get a connection by its alias there is the new method getConnectionByAlias(). This method is not supported by the redis-sentinel backend due to its dynamic nature (connections are retrieved and initialized at runtime from sentinels) but it is possible to get a single connection from the pool by using its ID. It is also possible to retrive a connection by role using the method getConnectionByRole().

    • The concept of connection ID (ip:port pair) and connection alias (the alias parameter) in Predis\Connection\Cluster\PredisCluster has been separated. This change does not affect distribution and it is safe for existing clusters.

    • ๐Ÿ”ง Client option classes now live in the Predis\Configuration\Option namespace.

    • ๐Ÿšš Classes for Redis commands have been moved into the new Predis\Command\Redis namespace and each class name mirrors the respective Redis command ID.

    • The concept of server profiles is gone, the library now uses a single command factory to create instances of commands classes. The profile option has been replaced by the commands option accepting Predis\Command\FactoryInterface to customize the underlying command factory. The default command factory class used by Predis is Predis\Command\RedisFactory and it still allows developers to define or override commands with their own implementations. In addition to that, Predis\Command\RedisFactory relies on a convention-over-configuration approach by looking for a suitable class with the same name as the command ID in the Predis\Command\Redis when the internal class map does not contain a class associated.

    • The method Predis\Client::getClientFor($connectionID) has been replaced by getClientBy($selector, $value, $callable = null) which is more flexible as it is not limited to picking a connection from the underlying replication or cluster backend by ID, but allows users to specify a $selector that can be either id (the old behavior), key, slot or command. The client uses duck-typing instead of type-checking to verify that the underlying connection implements a method that matches the specified selector which means that some selectors may not be available to all kinds of connection backends.

    • ๐Ÿšš The method Predis\Client::getConnectionById($connectionID) has been removed.

    • ๐Ÿ”„ Changed the signature for the constructor of Predis\Command\RawCommand.

    • The Predis\Connection\Aggregate namespace has been split into two separate namespaces for cluster backends (Predis\Connection\Cluster) and replication backends (Predis\Connection\Replication).

    • The method Predis\Connection\AggregateConnectionInterface::getConnection() has been renamed to getConnectionByCommand().

    • The methods switchToMaster() and switchToSlave() have been promoted to be part of Predis\Connection\Replication\ReplicationInterface while the method switchTo($connection) has been removed from it.

    • The method Predis\Connection\Cluster\PredisCluster::executeCommandOnNodes() has been removed as it is possible to achieve the same by iterating over the connection or, even better, over the client instance in order to execute the same command against all of the registered connections.

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ The class Predis\CommunicationException now uses the correct default types for the $message (string) and $code (integer) parameters.

    • The method onConnectionError() in Predis\Connection\AbstractConnection class now passes the second argument as an integer value 0 as its default value instead of null.

    • The class Predis\Transaction\AbortedMultiExecException now uses the correct default types for the $code (integer) parameter.

    • ๐Ÿ›  FIX: using strval in getScanOptions() method, part of Predis\Collection\Iterator\CursorBasedIterator to make sure we retrieve the string value of $this->match and not passing null to strlen() function.

    • ๐Ÿ›  FIX: the value returned from getArgument() in isReadOperation() method, part of Predis\Replication\ReplicationStrategy class, is checked to not pass null to sha1 function.

    • ๐Ÿ›  FIX: the value returned from getArgument() in parseResponse()method, part of Predis\Command\Redis\SENTINEL class, is checked to not pass null to strtolower() function.
