Oracle Announces Latest Release of Oracle® Berkeley DB

Anybody still have doubts as to Oracle's commitment to open source? They just announced the latest release of Berkeley DB with support for Google Android!

And a new SQL API based on SQLite...

This is looking very good!

Comments:

Yeah, and then they make support for Solaris 10 mandatory, without informing customers.

Swell.

I fail to see how this would be possible with an open source product... that probably would result, at best, in the user community forking BerkeleyDB from version n-1 into a new competitor. Oracle is way smarter than that.
