MySQL Server 5.6.13 Community Release Notes

MySQL Server 5.6.13 has been released, and is available (as always) in GPL-licensed Community builds as well as commercial-license builds for evaluation and customer use. By my count, the release notes show just over 100 bugs fixed, improving user experiences both for community and customer users of MySQL 5.6 alike. The MySQL community was an integral part of that effort, submitting almost 40 of the bug reports fixed in 5.6.13. I’m taking this opportunity to express my gratitude on behalf of the MySQL Engineering team at Oracle for these efforts.

  • Po-Chun Chang has identified a series of code optimizations, frequently providing patches. In Bug#69377, this comes in the form of an optimization by eliminating needless work in an internal InnoDB function.

The MySQL Man Pages ARE Available under the GPL

Due to a bug in our release packaging scripts, the wrong version of the man pages, with the wrong license text, were copied into the MySQL Server GPL packages. The MySQL Man Pages continue to be available under GPL. The MySQL Server GPL packages will be corrected ASAP. You can read and follow the public bug here.

We apologize for the confusion this has caused. As always, please feel free to contact us, to ask about changes that you are wondering about.  Reporting a bug is always a good way to communicate with us.

Have a Happy GPL Midsummer, Tomas

April MySQL Engineering News

On a regular basis I plan to summarize the latest news from MySQL Engineering. I hope you find it useful.

April highlights were the DMR’s coming out for both MySQL Cluster 7.3.2 and MySQL Server 5.7.1. For those that have been missing the launchpad versions of those, I apologize for the delay, but they should be there now if you want to dig into the changeset details. And to repeat what I’ve said in the past, there should not be a delay between releases on launchpad and src tar balls, so please keep bugging me when you see glitches there. Personally I also very much enjoyed the April Percona conference where I met a lot of old good friends and gave a keynote. You can …

Celebrating 10 years @MySQL

In early Spring 2003 I called Erik Granström @MySQL, wanting to discuss if we could work with MySQL on a new storage engine.  He directed me to Mårten Mickos, the CEO of MySQL. After a brief call with Mårten, we were to take up the discussion later in the Spring.  Mårten was very busy, and did not have time to take the discussion further, he did not tell me why, but I learned it a few months later.

At the time I was heading up a database start-up.  We had struggled for some time with customers, as they all wanted a “standard interface” to access the data, and all we could offer was a proprietary C++ interface. The answer lay in SQL, and we had done some initial work on an ODBC driver, where the parser and query execution was all done in the api.  It was tedious work, and clearly not where our key differentiator was.  Reading in the Linux Journal that Winter about MySQL seemed to present a solution to our …
