Improved release model for MySQL Cluster


Contrary to mounting rumors, MySQL is not closing or removing MySQL Cluster. The reason for the cluster applications being missing in the latest 5.1 binaries is a split release model, as Kaj Arnö explains. The almost simultaneous announcement of Cluster 6.2 release is a confirmation that the Cluster is alive and kicking.

To reinforce the Cluster buzz, another blogging entity has surfaced. The MySQL Telecom Team is mostly involved in Cluster technologies, although not exclusively.


Where have their been "mounting rumors" of MySQL Cluster going closed source? I haven't seen a single mention...

Guilty conscience?

The rumors come from several private comments that we received.
The purpose of Kaj's announcement was to prevent the spreading of uninformed remarks. Personally, I can't afford a guilty conscience. Too busy for that.
