Recently, Redis creator Salvatore Sanfilippo announced that Redis collections are now iterable. In the past, Redis collections have been difficult to access and navigate - Sanfilippo calls them "black holes where you put things inside, and you can hardly explore them again" - so more practical techniques for working with Redis collections are definitely welcome.

The upgrades are also being back ported to version 2.8 (the code is self contained), so this should be a very helpful change and accessible to a lot of users. For the full description of the new feature, as well as a description of the thought process behind it and the work that went into it, check out Sanfilippo's blog post.
