Using MySQL for Excel
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently had a need to import a bunch of data into MySQL, and for reasons I won’t get into here, LOAD DATA INFILE wasn’t working for me.  I was in a hurry to get the data into MySQL so that I could filter it, and didn’t have time to work through my LOAD DATA INFILE issues.  Looking around for another way to quickly get my tab-delimited data into MySQL quickly, I decided to use the MySQL for Excel plugin.  If you haven’t seen this yet, and you have Excel, it might be worth your while.

In my case, I was able to quickly copy and paste the …

Bye-bye .MSI (Hello MySQL Installer)
Employee +4 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Windows users of MySQL may find something missing when they first download MySQL 5.6.6.  The .MSI package of MySQL for Windows has been eliminated in favor of the MySQL Installer for Windows.  You can still download MySQL in .ZIP format (as well as a source code .ZIP for the GPL-licensed Community edition), but the quickest way to get running MySQL on Windows is the MySQL Installer.  You can download the version of MySQL Installer that includes MySQL 5.6.6 on dev.mysql.com.

The MySQL Installer has a number of improvements over the old .MSI …

MariaDB 5.5 is now GA
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Well, as you or may not have heard, MariaDB 5.5 (5.5.23) was declared GA last week!

It was only about 6-ish weeks ago that MariaDB 5.5 had been released as alpha, so the fact it’s already GA is excellent news for all MariaDB users (and MySQL 5.5 users looking to migrate).

Some of the 5.5 enhancements include:

  • Significantly more efficient thread pool, comparable in functionality to the closed source feature in MySQL Enterprise.
  • Non-blocking client API Library (MWL#192)
  • @@skip_replication option (MWL#234)
  • SphinxSE updated to version 2.0.4.

MariaDB 5.3 is now GA
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is another, in-case-you-missed-it, but it is definitely worth mentioning again:

MariaDB 5.3 is now GA

So, if you’re using MariaDB 5.1 or 5.2, I’d definitely recommend upgrading to the new MariaDB 5.3.

Also, if you’re a Windows user using MySQL 5.1, I’d highly consider making the switch to MariaDB 5.3 due to all of the Windows-specific improvements in it.

MariaDB 5.3 Enhancements:

  • Subquery optimizations
  • Semi-join subquery optimizations
  • Non-semi-join optimizations
  • Subquery Cache
  • Subquery Optimizations Map
  • Optimizations for derived tables and views
