Another great MySQL 5.6 milestone releaseTue, Apr 10, 2012 in Databases
Oracle has released another huge batch of improvements to MySQL slated for MySQL 5.6. The pace of innovation in MySQL is accelerating rapidly and the improvements are impressive. I have not read all of the blog posts thoroughly yet, but I’ve skimmed and it looks fantastic.
The link posted above is ONE of the sets of improvements: there are also a bunch of other posts about new improvements to the query optimizer, InnoDB, and probably more. But I don’t see a single table-of-contents blog post for those that I can link to. Hence I recommend that you look at Planet MySQL to find these posts.

I contribute to various database communities such as Oracle, PostgreSQL, Redis and MongoDB. More about me.
