Announcing the release of DiskCache version 1.6.3

What is DiskCache?

[DiskCache][1] is an Apache2 licensed disk and file backed cache
library, written in pure-Python, and compatible with Django. By
leveraging a rock-solid database library and memory-mapped files,
cache performance can match and exceed industry standard solutions.
There’s no need for a C compiler or running another process.
[Performance is a feature][2] and testing has 100% coverage with unit
tests and hours of stress in production.



* Pure-Python
* Fully Documented
* Benchmark comparisons (alternatives, Django cache backends)
* 100% test coverage
* Days of stress testing in production
* Performance matters
* Django compatible API
* Thread-safe and process-safe
* Supports multiple eviction policies (LRU and LFU included)
* Keys support “tag” metadata and eviction
* Developed on Python 2.7
* Tested on CPython 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 and PyPy
