Merging 5.6 test cases and thoughts on feature deprecation in MariaDB 10.0

MariaDB 10 is nearing GA, and it makes sense to make sure that the test suite from MySQL 5.6 is merged into MariaDB 10.

The only way for feedback to the MySQL team seems to be comments on Morgan’s blog. However with MariaDB, especially with the feedback plugin enabled, we have an additional layer of …

An exercise on using valgrind with MySQL on MacOSX

Valgrind is a very useful tool. This has been recognized by the mysql developers long ago. They've even invested effort into creating a special mode for the mysql test driver (mysql-test-run.pl) to invoke the server tests under valgrind and collect the results.
But the sad fact remains that this is not exactly usable on MacOSX due to immaturity of the valgrind's support for this platform.

Next Release Coming Soon

We are working hard on the next release of MySQL Workbench and are trying to follow our plan of getting a release out every second week. A lot of things have already been addressed, some new things came up. But we are clearly moving into the right direction and our investments in unit tests and UI tests seems to pay off as expected. More details in a post later this week.
