Ekster now contains a new feature. The backend now supports two types of Redis based timeline backends. The default is still the timeline based on sorted sets. The new type is based on streams. The notification channel will now use this new stream type. Not many entries are posted to this channel, but I will use it for more things in the future.
Using time.Time will by default not result in a nice serialization in Redis. Now I use unix time as int64, which is much easier to work with.
