Shi...pment happens - Tungsten Replicator 2.1.2
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

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

Drizzle7
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

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

Some hidden goods in MySQL 5.5
+11 Vote Up -0Vote Down
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

Five reasons to upgrade to MySQL 5.5
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

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

MySQL 5.1 is GA — including a behind-the-scenes report
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I suspect that few of the readers of my blog have missed it, but MySQL 5.1 is GA (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/server.html" target="_blank). And I suspect it was no surprise to my readers, nor those of Giuseppe, the Community Team Lead. Nor those who read Sheeri’s blog, with the picture of Dups unmistakably setting GA date expectations at the OpenSQL Camp a number of weeks ago.

What's going on in MySQL land?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Enough of one-sided stories. Let's see a different angle of MySQL 5.1.

First, let me thank my colleague Chris Powers for taking a stand in defense of the management. But saying "everyone does so" is not a good explanation. The truth is much more complex and requires some narrative.

MySQL 5.1 didn't start on the right foot. The effort to produce its features was underestimated, mostly because, at the time when it was designed, the company was still unearthing the architectural bugs that were haunting MySQL 5.0.

MySQL 5.0 was GA in October 2005. One month later, MySQL 5.1 started its alpha stage, while a rain of bugs fell on the freshly released server.

MySQL 5.1 for impatient Italians
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have just started a blog in Italian. Although Italian is my mother tongue, most of my technical writing is in English. Since my tasks are more widespread than a single country, it was easier and simpler to write in English straight away.

After Sun acquisition, the MySQL presence in Italy is growing, and then it makes sense to employ my birth speaking abilities to spread the word in my country.

Today, thanks to a convoluted introduction, set in motion by Kaj and Google Translate, I started contributing to Giuseppe Guerrasio's blog, pettinix.org, with a post on

Quality of 5.1 GA release
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With all due respect to Monty (and I mean that — much respect is due), I have some serious issues with his portrayal of the 5.1 release.  I hate to make my first entry on Planet MySQL about a controversy, but he encouraged people to blog about their experience with 5.1, so that’s what I’ll do here.

Overall Quality

As a long time user, I am very confident that the quality of 5.1 GA far exceeds that of the initial 5.0 GA release (5.0.15).  In fact, I would go further and suggest that the MySQL organization has if anything been too conservative about declaring 5.1 GA.

It’s obviously true that there are still many bugs open.  However no software is bug free, especially not those with codebase as large as MySQL.  So the question is not if they are bug free,

MySQL 5.1-GA is coming
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Sheeri has already commented on this, but I want to stress that MySQL 5.1.30 will be GA by December 6th, 2008.

PBXT compiles without change under MySQL 5.1.25!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
OK, now I know that the GA version of 5.1 is rapidly approaching. PBXT compiles with the latest release of MySQL without any changes!

This has never been the case before. Just search the PBXT code for MYSQL_VERSION_ID, and you will find things like:
#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID     XT_RETURN_VOID;
#else
XT_RETURN(0);
#endif
and, even worse:
#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID #if MYSQL_VERSION_ID >= 50124
#define USE_CONST_SAVE
#endif
#else
#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID >= 60005
#define USE_CONST_SAVE
#endif
#endif
The lack of changes that affect pluggable storage engines can only mean that the bug fixes required are diminishing in scope.

And I believe this is a far better gauge of whether GA is close than any other
