Are there plans to not require full flushing of data for an upgrade?
We've not been able to support an upgrade path between beta due to all the changes and bug fixes necessary. However, once GA is released, it will be a requirement to provide a seamless upgrade path that preserves your data.
I hope this doesn't inconvenience your testing too much, we are very eager for users and feedback on Membase.

Thanks Perry, that's what I expected. It does inhibit our testing slightly, as it prevents more long term usage. We are also very eager to being using Membase, as it solves a lot of the existing problems we are seeing. I'm hoping to continue testing as much as possible and provide feedback the best I can.
Also curious about plans for backups, with the GA release will there be a CLI for backups or will it just be files-on-disk? It would be nice to see a backup solution that is as elegant as the rest of the solutions Membase has focused on.
Thanks cwh, I'll check and get back to you on the backups question.
