The first models of Raspberry Pi computers were shipped and I was happy to receive one this week. RasPi is a SoC computer for ~25€ with Broadcom BCM2835 (ARM) CPU, 256MB, Ethernet, USB, HDMI and 3.5mm audio jack. I completed the equipment with an additional wireless USB adapter.

It seems that Squeeze ships a broken php5-memcache package, which does not fit the API of memcached 1.4.4. Since Squeeze is already released, there will be no fix in the official stable repository. But I provide a fixed package for download.
The title "TYPO3 4.3 Multimedia Cookbook" by Dan Osipov is another book about TYPO3 published by Packt Publishing in January 2010. It's generally good to see more English books about TYPO3 in the market since there are still very few compared to German publications. The topic of cooking multimedia in TYPO3 is nowadays very relevant, since the demand to manage rich media in content management systems grows and there's no other publication in the English book market with the same focus.
