Oracle released many new MySQL versions back on Monday, but I had
no time during this very busy week to check anything related
(besides the fact that MySQL 8.0.13 can be complied from source on my Fedora 27
box). I am sure you've read a lot about MySQL 8.0.13 elsewhere
already, even patches contributed by Community are already
presented in a separate post by Jesper Krogh.
I am still mostly interested in MySQL 5.7. So, here is my typical quick review of some selected bugs reported in public by MySQL Community users and fixed in MySQL …
This event is a real success story for the MySQL ecosystem; the content, the speakers and the attendees are growing every year.
The first big change for this 2019 edition is that the MariaDB Foundation (Ian) is joining my efforts to build this Devroom. Don’t forget that FOSDEM takes place in Belgium, and our motto is “l’Union fait la Force” [“Unity is Strength”].[Read more]
The FOSDEM organization just confirmed that again this year the ecosystem of your favorite database will have its Devroom !
More info to come soon, but save the day: 2 & 3rd February 2019 in Brussels !
It seems the MySQL & Friends Devroom (MariaDB, Percona, Oracle, and all tools in the ecosystem) will be held on Saturday (to be confirmed).
Stay tuned !
One of the features I missed in my blog post on problematic MySQL features back in July is XA transactions. Probably I was too much in a hurry, as this feature is known to be somewhat buggy, limited and not widely used outside of Java applications. My first related feature request, Bug #40445 - "Provide C functions library implementing X/OPEN XA interface for Bea Tuxedo", was created almost 10 years ago, based on the issue from one of MySQL/Sun customers of that time. I remember some …[Read more]
This blog will show how to install the Percona XtraDB Cluster on three CentOS 7.3 servers, using the packages from Percona repositories.

This cluster will be assembled of three servers/nodes:
ProxySQL is the most preferred and is widely used for load-balancing MySQL workload, thanks to Rene Cannon & Team for the great tool, and kudos on the recent release of ProxySQL 1.4.10, with a lot of bug fixes. ProxySQL is simple in design, lightweight, highly efficient and feature rich, We have been working with ProxySQL in production for our client quite a sometime, we have also shared some of our encounters/experience and use cases in the below blogs.[Read more]
In my recent blog posts I presented lists of bugs, fixed and not yet fixed, as usual. Working on these
lists side tracked me from the main topic of this summer -
problems in Oracle's way of handling MySQL. Time to get back on
Among things Oracle could do better for MySQL I mentioned QA:
"Oracle's internal QA efforts still seem to be somewhat limited.
We get regression bugs, ASAN failures, debug assertions, crashes, test failures etc in the official releases, and Oracle MySQL still …
In my previous summary blog post I listed 5 problems
I see with the way Oracle handles MySQL server development. The
first of them was that "Oracle does not develop MySQL server
in a true open source way" and this is actually what I
started my draft of that entire blog post with. Now it's time to
get into details, as so far there was mostly fun around this and
statements that MariaDB also could do better in the related
Twitter discussion I had.
So, let me explain what forces me to think that Oracle is treating MySQL somewhat wrong for the open source product.
Recently it's quite common to state that "Oracle's Acquisition Was Actually the Best Thing
to Happen to MySQL". I am not going to argue with that -
Oracle proved over years that they are committed to continue
active development of this great open source RDBMS, and they have
invested a lot into making it better and implementing features
that were missed or became important recently. Unlike Sun Microsystems, they seem to clearly know what
to do with this software to make it more popular and make money
Among the right things Oracle does for MySQL server development I'd like to highlight the following:
- MySQL server development continues, with new features added, most popular OSes supported, regular releases …
