Drizzle 2011.03.13 GA tarball has been released!

Drizzle source tarball version 2011.03.13 has been released.  This is a GA release (and just in time for the ides of March) >: )

* Apologies for any confusion with version 2011.03.12 (see the url for this entry…) and announcements – there was an issue with the release process that necessitated cutting another tarball.  2011.03.13 is good to go

It’s been a long and crazy road to get to this point and the team would like to thank everyone that has helped us get here.  Every patch, bug report, and thought-provoking question has been invaluable in getting Drizzle this solid.

For quick summaries of what has been going on with the team, please check out Andrew Hutching’s terrific ‘Last Week In Drizzle‘ series

For a general rundown of how we differ from MySQL, see here

Here is a partial list of what you can find inside:

  • Documentation is sphinx-based and available in-tree or online.  It should be noted that they are licensed under Creative Commons!
  • Replication solutions will be log based.  Both file-based and innodb-table based versions of the log are available and have been heavily tested / validated.
  • Native replication available via the slave plugin.  This solution utilizes the innodb-based replication log and has been subjected to significant testing.  Check out a simple example here.  You can check out David Shrewsbury’s replication related blog posts here
  • Easy migration from MySQL systems via the Drizzledump tool.
  • Drizzleadmin tool – used to bypass the protocol’s max-connections setting to do tasks such as killing queries or clients.
  • libdrizzle is included in the tree (no longer a separate project) and is BSD licensed
  • ANSI-compliant INFORMATION_SCHEMA
  • DATA_DICTIONARY for custom, Drizzle-specific tables and data
  • Innodb tables by default
  • MyISAM available (temporary tables)
  • Removed archive, blackhole, csv, and other engines (these can be reintroduced if faced with enough demand).
  • HailDB engine = embedded Innodb, but better
  • Pluggable authentication
  • SQLAlchemy integration – we now pass their test suite and use it as part of our build and test system
  • Significant performance improvements
  • Initial work for catalogs
  • And tons more!
