I see so many posts on what happened to company X, product Y and
dream Z that I couldn't resist the temptation to summarize this
great year for MySQL. At the end of 2010, Oracle did an
announcement we were all waiting for: MySQL 5.5 is GA! Another year has passed
since then and it's time to reflect on what has been done.
I know this is a long post. I tried to rewrite it at least 10 times to make it shorter, but I couldn't condense the list. Hence, I wrote a summary in the beginning for those who don't want to read it all.
