This library is stable and largely in maintenance mode. Another library that is getting more active enhancements is pymemcache and they have links and a good set of comparisons between them on their page.

This package was originally written by Evan Martin of Danga. Please do not contact Evan about maintenance. Sean Reifschneider of, ltd. has taken over maintenance of it.
