The Importance of Being Earnest
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

By now, word has gotten around that MySQL has made some more changes to their process around MySQL Community Server. The changes primarily focus on:

  • acceptance of community contributions (5.0 and 5.1 are now locked for contributions, so any contributions won’t be available until 5.2 or later)
  • release schedule of community server (”Mature GA”, meaning 5.0, will have approximately 4 source builds per year and 2 binary builds; new GA, meaning 5.1, will have a binary build once per month)

These refinements of the community server [process] are detailed in Kaj Arnö’s blog. Not everyone is happy about the new plan for acceptance of community contributions, because it means that community enhancements have to wait a long time to see the light of day. Jeremy Cole has talked

Managing Bugzilla Spam
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Spammers continue to find new ways to do their business and new ways to cause frustration for those of us who administer software that fosters small, open communities. These communities are fragile and grow up in a delicate environment. The environment needs to remain open: self-registration, the ability to post content, and the option of remaining anonymous is the key to success. Unfortunately, it is also a ripe environment for spammers to abuse.

Spammers have now discovered that bugzilla is one of those environments. For those who don’t know, bugzilla is one of the most common open source bug tracking tools. It is used by many open source projects to allow the community to assist in reporting bugs on and enhancement ideas for each project. The original version of Bugzilla was first created at Netscape in the mid-nineties (back when I was

Solid is at OSCON
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few of us from Solid are up in Portland at OSCON. We’ll be showing off a new prototype of our high availability (HA) option for solidDB for MySQL. The HA option allows solidDB for MySQL to act in a hot-standby configuration where there is a primary and secondary server. The data in the primary is automatically synchronously replicated to the secondary. In the case that the primary fails, our HA Manager automatically performs a failover and the secondary server becomes the new primary. The secondary is also always available for read-only requests.

We’ll also be talking about DorsalSource, a community-focused Web site whose goal is to provide developers with easy access to builds of MySQL and related products. Come by booth 820 on Wednesday or Thursday if you want to hear more, download movies, movies online.

There has been some ongoing discussion since the end of last year about MySQL’s decision to change how often they release binaries for the MySQL Community Edition.

For those that haven’t been paying attention, at the end of last year MySQL decided that they will no longer commit to releasing binaries for all versions and platforms of their Community Edition. Instead, some versions of their Community Edition are labeled “source-only” releases. For example, 5.0.33 Community Edition was a source-only release.

People have realized that this means they will either wait longer between MySQL-released community binaries or else they need to build the binary themselves. Peter Zaitsev blogged at the time that he is hoping

Meet the Experts at MySQL UC
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As folks on several MySQL blogs have already noted, Solid will be hosting informal “Meet the Experts” discussion sessions during lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday at the MySQL Users Conference. We at Solid are quite excited to engage with so many smart folks from the community. We’ve initially set the discussion topics to “Migrating from MySQL 4.0 to 5.0″ for Tuesday and “Replication in the Real World” for Wednesday. However, the format is open, so people are free to discuss any other interesting topics that come up.

In addition, Solid is allowing people to use the discussion space in their booth on a first-come, first-serve basis for their own discussions. If you have an interesting topic on which you would like to host a discussion, come on by our booth and sign up for a free timeslot.

solidDB for MySQL 5.0.27-0064 has been released
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Solid has released 5.0.27-0064. This release has a number of bug fixes and enhancements. For the full detailed list of bug fixes and enhancements, please see the ChangeLog.

Some highlights include:

  • Obtain version number. You can now see which version of solidDB for MySQL you are running with the “show status” command. In order to not break existing applications which rely on it, the version number of MySQL server on which solidDB for MySQL is built upon can still be determined by using the “select version()” function.

upgrading from solidDB for MySQL Beta 4 to Beta 5
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you have been using solidDB for MySQL Beta 4 and decided to try out solidDB for MySQL Beta 5, you might have seen the following warning message when you try to start up mysqld: ¶

SOLID Database Warning 1022: The database you are using has been
originally created with a different database block size setting
than your current setting.

To suppress this warning edit the solid.ini file to contain
the following parameter setting:
[IndexFile]BlockSize=8192

The reason for this warning message is that the default block size has changed. Beta 4 was using a default block size of 8K and Beta 5 uses a default block size of 16K.

We have released a new set of bits. The solidDB for MySQL Beta 4 is now out. Like the previous release, it is primarily intended as a bug fix release.
