When will you release 0.12.0?
Since this project is probably one of the most used C drivers for redis, it's unfortunate that issues like these are abandoned. In a way, it affects the trust I have for hiredis when choosing to use it in a project. Perhaps there is information elsewhere?
I completely agree with you @jbergstroem, this issue should be taken care of by a member of the team.
We're currently in the process to get development on this project back to a better level. We will hopefully push out a new and stable release soon.
