New InnoDB features

Yesterday I wrote about the new Full-text search for InnoDB. Some of you may have not noticed there is a package on Labs.MySQL.Com named mysql-5.6-labs-innodb-features that needs attention. Some of the features are already in the main MySQL source trunk and others will soon be there. Code to support solid state drives with 4K and 8K pages is there. Along with REDO logs up to 2TB in size. There is better thread scheduling and an option to pre-load the buffer pool for better performance after a restart. And UNDO logs can be in their own table space. And please let us know what you find in your testing so we can improve the product!
