MySQL Password Security Changes for PHP Developers
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.7 introduced many new facets to password security. The first thing most notice is that you are assigned a random root password at installation time.

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 …
