News about MySQL

  • Since April 11th MySQL v5.6 is available. On the MySQL Download page you will find the new Release under the Tab Development Releases.
    The most important News are:
    • Further improvement of InnoDB has been taken place and more information are available in the INFORMATION_SCHEMA and in the PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA.
    • The MySQL Replication has been improved again.
    • Exchange Partition and explicit naming of the partitions which should be selected, is now possible.
  • MySQL Cluster v7.2.0 is now available as well since April 11th. On the page MySQL Cluster Download you can find the new Release under the tab Development Releases.
    The most important News:
    • Joins will be pushed to the Cluster (Pushed-down Joins). This should ease a significant disadvantage of the MySQL Cluster, slow joins. We are curious about it...
    • MySQL User and Privileges now will be distributed over all SQL-nodes.
  • You can download the MySQL Enterprise Backup for testing purposes from E-Delivery.
    Hence tests with the physical online-backup method of MySQL are possible.
  • Drizzle 7 is finally on March 13th, after 3 long years, ready for the production use. Drizzle is made for the use in the Cloud. Caution: The change to Drizzle is not that simple like with the other MySQL Forks.
