Brian Aker on post-Oracle MySQL

,----[ Quote ]
| BA: There hasn't been a roadmap for MySQL
| for some time. Even before Sun acquired
| MySQL, it was languishing, and Sun's
| handling of MySQL just further eroded the
| canonical MySQL tree. I'm waiting to see
| what Oracle announces at the MySQL
| Conference. I expect Oracle to scrap the
| current 5.5 plan and come up with a viable
| roadmap. It won't be very innovative, but I
| am betting it will be a stable plan that
| users can look at.


Oracle to Outline Strategy for MySQL


The future of MySQL in a post-Sun world

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle's absorption of Sun is complete. Now
| that the European Commission has blessed
| the merger, the Oracle logo is proudly
| displayed to anyone who types "sun.com"
| into a browser. Yet if you visit mysql.com,
| you'll see hardly any mention of Sun, the
| company that purchased MySQL for $1 billion
| in 2008, and Oracle's logo is buried deep
| at the bottom of the pages.
| [...]
| There's good news for fans of MySQL: It
| won't be left to wither and die any time
| soon. Oracle has made very public
| assurances that it will spend more on
| developing the database than Sun ever did,
| at least for the next three years. The
| Community Edition will continue to see
| improvements, which will be released under
| the GPL at no charge with all of the source
| code.
