+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

New MySQL Sandbox 3.1 - GitHub, and usability
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have three pieces of information to share about MySQL::Sandbox:

  • Version 3.1.0 has migrated from Launchpad to GitHub
  • This version is released under the Apache license. Both these changes are meant to improve and promote cooperation on the project.
  • There is an important change related to usability. When using replication with MySQL::Sandbox and MySQL 5.6+, the server UUIDs become more readable (see below).
