MySQl 5.6 early adopters — we need your help!

Using MySQL 5.6? Tell us what you think!

The MySQL Community Team would like to know what you folks using MySQL 5.6 think of the new features. From time to time we would like to quiz you admittedly good looking and brilliant group about how MySQL 5.6 is being evaluated, if it is solving problems that previously existed, and just how well it works for you. We need feedback from you cutting edge explorers to improve the breed. So please reply to this blog or send me a note at David.Stokes AT Oracle.

For those that missed the announcements, previews of MySQL 5.6 are available at for you to evaluate. The software is not ready for production but does feature new features like Full Text Search InnoDB tables, Binary Log API, Binary Log Group Commit, multi-thread slaves, memcached-to-InnoDB and more. So please try a copy today!

  1. You had me at “good looking and brilliant” :-)

    I don’t really try things out — my customers do that and I see where it works or not. Nobody I know is doing that; they are all looking at 5.5 sometime in the future. So I haven’t had a chance to chew on 5.6 in a substantial way. That said, I think there is a lot of goodness in the new features, especially ones that will obsolete special features in Percona Server so we won’t have to maintain them anymore :-)
