New Maatkit release policySun, Nov 18, 2007 in Databases Open Source
Maatkit (formerly MySQL Toolkit) has for some time been released both as a bundle, and as individual tools. It’s too much work to maintain the individual packages, and I don’t think it really benefits anyone much, if at all. While the tools will still be versioned separately, I’m going to discontinue releases of the individual packages, and just release the one uber-package from now on.
This will also make it easier for me to manage the name change, but that’s just an extra incentive; I’ve been considering this for a while.
By the way, Sourceforge indicated it would take up to a couple of days to finish the project’s rename, but it took only a few minutes. Lots of broken links; I’ve asked for a permanent redirect from the old URLs to the new.
I'm Baron Schwartz, the founder and CEO of VividCortex. I am the author of High Performance MySQL and lots of open-source software for performance analysis, monitoring, and system administration. I contribute to various database communities such as Oracle, PostgreSQL, Redis and MongoDB. More about me.
