Happy Thanksgiving v. 5.1
By Duleepa Wijayawardhana on Nov 26, 2008
If you are in the US and eating your turkey and giving thanks, you can look forward to also giving thanks that version 5.1 of MySQL is now marked Generally Available for production use (GA). Yes after quite the number of releases, a plethora of bugs fixed, it is now there for use by all.
Not that that's stopped us from using it live on our production systems here at MySQL.com, check out this interview with Adam Donnison of MySQL.com's webteam where he details a bit of running 5.1 over the last year.
Congratulations to all the devs, it's been a long road, time to enjoy the fruits of their labour, along with a bit of cranberry sauce and some stuffing.
