With the 4.0 release our goal was to simplify the api and make it consistent and dead simple. A long the way we fixed many bugs and added new implementations.

- Redis metrics client
We've went through with a fine comb and simplified many api's to make it extremely straightforward to consume or create new implementations. We've renamed a few existing implementations for consistency and simplified overloads to make it easier to reason about the code. For example at one point queue jobs could have up to four locks, we realized that this could be simplified and now jobs have one lock.
We've also made massive improvements to logging to ensure that we are aligned for the future logging api implementations while ensuring we don't add any extra allocations for things that were never meant to be logged (min log levels).
We've learned a lot since our last release and have added even more tests. Here is a list of some of the major bugs we've fixed:
- We found and fixed a few areas where deadlocks could occur.
- Resolved issues that could occur if active connections were dropped and now we automatically heal.
- Resolved issues where cached reference types could be updated.
Please take a look at the change log for a full list of the changes.
