Ghosts of MySQL Past: Part 3
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

See Part 1 and Part 2.

We rejoin our story with a lawsuit. While MySQL suing Progress NuSphere is not perhaps the first GPL lawsuit that comes to mind, it was the first time that the GPL was tested in court. Basically, the GEMINI storage engine was a proprietary storage engine bundled with a copy of MySQL. Guess what? The …

eulogy for mysql forge
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

When the mysql librarian closed, I didn’t think too much about it; it was a feature I probably never used. However this month brings the end of the mysql forge. The MySQL Forge was something I worked on while I was at MySQL so I am a little sad to see it go. 

Now for a little bit of a history lesson. We wanted some kind of “forge” back in 2005, because …

InnoDB Revision History
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is a brief overview of the history of InnoDB with respect to the Version Control Systems (VCS) that were used for developing. It could be useful to people who want to trace back in time to find the origins of bugs or features.

Early days
InnoDB was born in the mid 1990s when Heikki Tuuri started developing this masterpiece. Heikki was a lone developer at that time and he did not use any VCS. There is no InnoDB revision history before 2001.

2001 – 2005
Then in 2001 InnoDB was imported into MySQL’s BitKeeper repository and development continued, recording the history there.

Long time ago, in 2002 I decided to create my own point of presence in the Internet. Back then I’ve got pretty nice domain (scoundrel.kremenchug.net), hacked up a few pages on php, added a guestbook and that was it. Many years it was almost static and I did a few updates on my resume page few times a year. Later I’ve switched the site to wordpress to make it easier to manage my resume and stuff

And 3 years ago in March 2006 …
