Hi Christian,

Not wanting to encourage a fork or anything ;) But can you tell us more about your new project?
Is it OSS?

Well, sometimes there is heavy traffic on the
mailing list, but in some way you're right, the
discussions are only discussions.....

This question has been discussed as well. It would be
much better for the development progress if
the project would be considered as a 'real' project,
especially because it would raise the interest in it.

I checked the page and I could not find any hint
on a specific leak although they've stated that there
are leaks.

NO! There are problems, especially with the
disk cache. I posted a fix three times and
there wasn't any discussion about it at all.
I am tired of posting it again, again and again
thus I started a small project on my own to
meet my requirements.
I would like to see more activity on this
project too, because it can be used in quite
a lot situations. A primary goal must be to
eliminate show stoppers like the one in the
disk cache and start profiling to find the
memory leaks mentioned by the people of

Yupp, this is definately a big PRO for this caching
