MySQL community recognition
Employee +8 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On behalf of myself and the MySQL Engineering team, I’d like to thank everyone for naming Oracle the Corporate Contributor of the year at the MySQL Community awards ceremony at Percona Live 2014.

I’d also like to thank everyone who have come up to me and my fellow colleagues in person to thank us for the great work they have seen in MySQL 5.6 as well as 5.7. I only wish that more people in the MySQL Engineering team would be able to share that experience.

Therefore I cannot stress enough how important it is for my team to hear such positive feedback through talks, blogs, and tweets. Thank you for doing so, and please continue sharing your positive experience with MySQL openly. Why not read about the latest mysql engineering work and leave a comment on mysqlserverteam.com, it is a huge motivator.

Employee +13 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL Engineering Team at Oracle is excited to announce availability of Yum repositories for MySQL, making new releases of MySQL Database and related products easily accessible using Yum.  This initial release is focused on EL6-based distros as well as Fedora 18 and 19, and provides easy access to the most recent GA releases of our most popular products:

  • MySQL Database 5.6
  • MySQL Workbench 6.0
  • MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.2

We expect to expand this in the future to offer additional MySQL products and versions using these repositories, as well as repositories for additional Linux distributions.

This effort benefits both end users and Linux distributions.  Users will have additional choice in deploying

MySQL Server 5.6.13 Community Release Notes
Employee +5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Server 5.6.13 has been released, and is available (as always) in GPL-licensed Community builds as well as commercial-license builds for evaluation and customer use. By my count, the release notes show just over 100 bugs fixed, improving user experiences both for community and customer users of MySQL 5.6 alike. The MySQL community was an integral part of that effort, submitting almost 40 of the bug reports fixed in 5.6.13. I’m taking this opportunity to express my gratitude on behalf of the MySQL Engineering team at Oracle for these efforts.

The MySQL Man Pages ARE Available under the GPL
Employee +12 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Due to a bug in our release packaging scripts, the wrong version of the man pages, with the wrong license text, were copied into the MySQL Server GPL packages. The MySQL Man Pages continue to be available under GPL. The MySQL Server GPL packages will be corrected ASAP. You can read and follow the public bug here.

We apologize for the confusion this has caused. As always, please feel free to contact us, to ask about changes that you are wondering about.  Reporting a bug is always a good way to communicate with us.

Have a Happy GPL Midsummer, Tomas

April MySQL Engineering News
Employee +9 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On a regular basis I plan to summarize the latest news from MySQL Engineering. I hope you find it useful.

April highlights were the DMR’s coming out for both MySQL Cluster 7.3.2 and MySQL Server 5.7.1. For those that have been missing the launchpad versions of those, I apologize for the delay, but they should be there now if you want to dig into the changeset details. And to repeat what I’ve said in the past, there should not be a delay between releases on launchpad and src tar balls, so please keep bugging me when you see glitches there. Personally I also very much enjoyed the April Percona conference where I met a lot of old good friends and gave a keynote. You can

Celebrating 10 years @MySQL
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In early Spring 2003 I called Erik Granström @MySQL, wanting to discuss if we could work with MySQL on a new storage engine.  He directed me to Mårten Mickos, the CEO of MySQL. After a brief call with Mårten, we were to take up the discussion later in the Spring.  Mårten was very busy, and did not have time to take the discussion further, he did not tell me why, but I learned it a few months later.

At the time I was heading up a database start-up.  We had struggled for some time with customers, as they all wanted a “standard interface” to access the data, and all we could offer was a proprietary C++ interface. The answer lay in SQL, and we had done some initial work on an ODBC driver, where the parser and query execution was all done in the api.  It was tedious work, and clearly not where our key differentiator was.  Reading in the Linux Journal that Winter about MySQL seemed to

About MySQL 5.6
+14 Vote Up -2Vote Down

I am very excited and thrilled to use the latest release of MySQL 5.6 in production. This is probably the most notable and innovative release in many years, if not ever.

During the last year, we had the chance to work with many new features and test the fixes to old issues. To be honest, I was expecting to have MySQL 5.6 GA before now, and I even wagered with my colleague Francisco that it would be out before the end of 2012. It was nothing special, just a beer in the Santa Clara Hyatt lounge. Unfortunately for me, MySQL 5.6 is now in GA and given that it happened in 2013, I lost the bet and now have to pay for that beer. But I have also lost the full list of things that we saw as relevant, interesting, or really innovative for MySQL.

So I took a step back, took some time, and reviewed what Oracle delivered in this new MySQL release.

MySQL Oracle Connect 2012: Day Two
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Another good day today: I attended the keynotes and found them quite interesting.

I especially liked the way Twitter uses MySQL to build up a NoSQL solution. Jokes aside, I took a few notes on things I must analyze and dig in.

The introduction of the Paypal models seemed very interesting, which brought me to attend the presentation later on. It was well constructed and had some good theoretical work, but I was quite disappointed. I found the presentation incomplete and missing real numbers for the MySQL Cluster NDB setup.

I attended the presentation done by Ronald B. It was good — nothing really advanced, but it was on purpose. He was very informative and explanatory for a junior MySQL DBA, and I enjoyed his presentation for the logical approach and construction.

Ronald also highlighted that it was the content of less then a chapter of one of his books and was done on purpose to

MySQL News

These past couple of weeks have been quite intense and generated a lot of news.

What stood out to me was the escalation in the race between MySQL/Oracle and MariaDB to be better. I have to say that all of us are benefiting from this competition. I am also not fully sure that Oracle would have put in such effort if Monty and his team was not pushing so hard. Certainly, Thomas Ulin has his agenda, but Monty is doing a great job for his product and in pushing the competitor to do his best. The result is that MySQL is becoming a better product day by day.

Thanks guys!

MySQL Internals

Is it a crazy idea to use MySQL for Json and HTTP embedded? I love crazy things, and this seems crazy, but it is closer to our reality than we can imagine:

“PoC: HTTP, JSON, JavaScript, Map&Reduce built-in to MySQL

What if MySQL had an HTTP interface and would reply JSON?
