+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Overview


First off, the important news. Tungsten Replicator 2.1.0 was released today.
You can download it and give it a try right now.


Second, I would say that I am quite surprised at how much we have done in this release. The previous release (2.0.7) was in February, which is just a few months ago, and yet it looks like ages when I see the list of improvements, new features and bug fixes in the Release Notes. I did not realized it until I ran my last batch of checks to test the upgrade from the previous release, which I hadn’t run for quite a long

Problems with Open Source: Part 2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
In my prior post on the problems with open source, I wrote that one issue that impacts open source revenues is the macro economy, and how a declining or difficult macro economy can result in reduction of revenues to open source companies. The following article talks about how financially troubled Spain is saving a "fortune" by moving to open source. The Spanish government's savings are coming at the expense of proprietary server software companies--most likely Microsoft--but I would be willing to bet that none of this "savings" is flowing to the open source vendors. That is what happens in a difficult macro economy.

Open Source, the MySQL market (and TokuDB in particular)
+7 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was reviewing the Percona Live sponsors list the other day and pondering the potential success stories associated with this product or that one…. and as I was preparing to put more thought on the topic, a PlanetMySQL post caught my eye. It was penned by Mike Hogan and titled, “Thoughts on Xeround and Free!

For some reason the author of that post makes a connection between a free account in a cloud-based service and Open Source software. I think it’s

This is a long due maintenance release of openark-kit. This release includes bugfixes and some enhancements, mainly to oak-online-alter-table.

oak-online-alter-table Changes / bug fixes include:

  • Support for keyword-named columns
