Redis uses a standard practice for its versioning: major.minor.patchlevel. An even minor marks a stable release: 1.2, 2.0, 2.2, 2.4, 2.6. Odd minors are used for unstable releases: 2.7.x were the unstable versions that became 2.8 once stable.
|2.6.13||Stable||This is the newest Redis version replacing Redis 2.4.
Redis 2.6 features support for Lua scripting, milliseconds precision expires, improved memory usage, unlimited number of clients, improved AOF generation, better performance, a number of new commands and features. For the complete list of new features, and the list of fixes contained in each 2.6 release, please check the Release Notes.

|Win32/64||Unofficial||The Redis project does not directly support Windows, however the Microsoft Open Tech group develops and maintains an experimental Windows port targeting Win32/64. Currently the port is not production quality but can be used for development purposes on Windows environments. We look forward for collaborating with the authors of this efforts but currently we will not merge the Windows port to the main code base.||Clone|
