Filnalmente MySQL 5.0 !

MySQLEl 24 de Octubre me llego un mail con el asunto «MySQL 5.0 Now Available for Production Use», en esos dias estaba pensando seriamente en dejar de utilizar mi gestor de base de datos preferido y empezar con PostgreSQL, pero ahora tengo que pensarlo dos veces antes de cometer una locura.

MySQL ultimamente me ha estado fallando en algunas consultas y la necesidad de implementar procedimientos almacenados me hicieron dudar.

Ahora es momento de evaluar esta version y ver si realmente funciona y quedarme con MySQL hasta nuevo aviso.

En el mail describe estas (no tan nuevas) caracteristicas:

  • Stored Procedures and SQL Functions — to embed business logic in the database and improve performance;
  • Triggers — to enforce complex business rules at the database level;
  • Views — to ensure protection of sensitive information;
  • Cursors — to allow easier database development and reference of lar!
    ge datasets;
  • Information Schema — to provid!
    e easy a
    ccess to metadata;
  • XA Distributed Transactions — supports complex transactions across multiple databases in heterogeneous environments;
  • SQL Mode — provides server-enforced data integrity for new and existing data;
  • New Federated and Archive Storage Engines — MySQL’s unique pluggable storage engine architecture allows greater flexibility, functionality and performance by making it easy to swap database engines in and out, based on users’ application requirements;
  • New Migration Toolkit — A new graphical toolkit that completely migrates all data and objects from Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access and other database platforms to MySQL;
  • Instance Manager — new management assistant that allows remote starting/stopping of any MySQL Server, as well as remote editing of configuration files, reading of error and query logs, and more;
  • Updated Connectors and Visual Tools!
    — new high-performance versions of MySQL’s ODBC, Java and .NET database drivers are now available, along with updated versions of the MySQL Query Browser and MySQL Administrator.
