MySQL 5.1 Is Imminent

Lora Bentley

MySQL is gearing up for brand new releases, according to eWEEK. Later this month, the company will release the latest version of its database server, MySQL v 5.1, as well as a new Falcon storage engine, MySQL Proxy and MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.1.


Among other things the new database server boasts row-based replication, events, partitioning and scalability enhancements.


Of Falcon, EVP Zack Urlocker says:

[It] was designed to take advantage of the many improvements in hardware that are happening now, like multicore CPUs and larger amounts of memory. It will be ideal for Web-based applications. It's still an early Alpha version, and it will be part of a GA release in 2008.

Just Tuesday, MySQL also announced the latest version of its MySQL Enterprise commercial subscription service. A subscription includes "monthly software updates, quarterly service packs, and emergency hot-fix builds [and] a customizable MySQL Install and Configuration Wizard for a wide range of popular platforms," the story says.
