MySQL usability issues for replication

In my latest series of advanced replication features, I came across several usability issues, which I would like to recap here. For each section of this list of requests, I make a wish list, with some general comments.
INSTALLATIONAs the maintainer of MySQL Sandbox, a tool that wants to facilitate the installation of …

Shi...pment happens - Tungsten Replicator 2.1.2

It was just a few days ago that we announced, with celebratory enthusiasm, Tungsten Replicator 2.1.1, and today we are at it again, with Tungsten Replicator 2.1.2.

What happened? In a surfeit of overconfidence, we released Tungsten 2.1.1, with faith on the test suite and its result. The faith was justified, as the test suite was able to catch any known problem and regression. The overconfidence was unjustified, because, due to a series of unfortunate events, some sections of the test suite were accidentally disabled, and the regression that was lurking in the dark was not caught.

Therefore, instead of having a quiet post-release week-end, the whole team has worked round the clock to plug the holes. There …

Drizzle7

We’ve released Drizzle7! Not only that, we’re now calling it Generally Available – a GA release.

What does this mean? What does this GA label mean?

You could view as a GA label being “we’re pretty confident people aren’t going to on mass ask for our heads when they start using it”… which isn’t a too bad description. We also plan to maintain it, there could be future releases in this series that just include bug fixes – we won’t just immediately tell you to go and use the latest tarball or bzr tree. This release series is a good one to use.

Drizzle7 is something that can be packaged in Linux distros. It’s no longer something where the best bet is to add the PPA and upgrade every two weeks or build …

Some hidden goods in MySQL 5.5
The announcement of MySQL 5.5 released as GA has outlined the improvements in this version, which indeed has enough good new features to excite most any user.
There are two additions, though, that were lost in the noise of the bigger features, and I would like to spend a few words for each of them.

The first addition is something that users of stored routines have been waiting for since MySQL 5.0. No, it is not SIGNAL and its close associate RESIGNAL, which have been publicized enough. I am talking about the stored routine parameters, for which now there is a dedicated table in the information_schema.
Let's see an example, with a simple …

Five reasons to upgrade to MySQL 5.5

I have been looking forward to the general availability (GA) release of MySQL 5.5 since is was publically announced in September that we would see this in 2010. While I already have a production client with 5.5.7rc, the badge of general availability is a great way to promote why environments should consider moving to using MySQL 5.5. Here is my quick short list of why I’d promote moving to MySQL 5.5.

1. Improved integration

The first significant improvement is that InnoDB is now again firmly a default included storage engine. The InnoDB plugin 1.1.x is now the builtin version of the engine, not a plugin version. Also the 1.1.x version has continued improvements over the 1.0.x version available as an included but not enabled plugin in current MySQL 5.1.x versions. Removing the complexity for end users over the choice of InnoDB and the necessary configuration changes is a great simplification. The introduction in the InnoDB plugin …
