    MySQL 5.6 Released!

    Not sure if everyone saw this, but I thought I'd share. Oracle recently announced the general availability of MySQL 5.6! Changes can be seen here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.6/en/


    Most notable changes (in my mind):
    • InnoDB now supports Full Text Searching
    • Timestamp/Datetime now support default and onupdate values
    • TimeStamp/Time/Datetime now support precision down to the microsecond
    • Timestamp no longer has a default unless specifically
    • Online DDL (Read the changelog for more)
    • NoSQL support for InnoDB
    • Better quality AND quantity for Performance Schema
    • Many improvements to replication


    Of course, you should read the full change log and migration guide before updating, but some of these changes are pretty great in my mind.
    Sadly, nobody codes for anyone on this forum. People taste your dishes and tell you what is missing, but they don't cook for you. ~anoopmail
    I'd rather be a comma, then a full stop.
