**Note:** This release introduces backwards incompatible changes with all previous versions of php-resque. Please see below for details.
+### Redisent (Redis Library) Replaced with Credis
+Redisent has always been the Redis backend for php-resque because of its lightweight nature. Unfortunately, Redisent is largely unmaintained.
+[Credis]( is a fork of Redisent, which among other improvements will automatically use the [phpredis]( native PHP extension if it is available. (you want this for speed, trust me)
+php-resque now utilizes Credis for all Redis based operations. Credis automatically required and installed as a Composer dependency.
### Composer Support
Composer support has been improved and is now the recommended method for including php-resque in your project. Details on Composer support can be found in the Getting Started section of the readme.
