The new pre-release version brings significantly improved command pipeline with less stalls due to the absence of conditional transactions (now using LUA scripting instead of them), less round-trips to Redis, decreased latency when obtaining distributed locks and optimized fetching from multiple queues using a single command. These changes heavily increase the throughput especially when using Redis in a cloud environment or using complex features in Hangfire.

  • Changed – Rewrite transactions using LUA scripting to reduce number of round-trips to Redis.
  • Changed – Optimize distributed lock acquisition logic to avoid extra polling and decrease latency.
  • Changed – Implement fetching from multiple queues using only a single query for all of them.
  • Changed – Avoid using conditional transactions where possible to avoid request pipeline stalls.
