Builds for MySQL





OurDelta produces builds for the MySQL database, with third-party patches, for common production platforms. All the builds are freely available for download.

At this point we’re using a baseline (for MySQL 5.0) of the patches already assembled/created by Percona, plus the Sphinx engine. Other additions are the additional target platforms and architectures, delivered through apt-get and yum repositories. We’re first dealing with MySQL 5.0, after that we’ll add 5.1 and 6.0, of course with the PBXT engine and other popular plugins and patches (such as new interesting developments from Mark Callaghan and the team at Google).

For production environments (the real world!), some new additions are extremely useful and sometimes even vital for application performance as well as for maintenance and troubleshooting. For the MySQL Community to thrive, there is a need for upto-date builds on all relevant platforms, with speedy availability of new innovation both from inside Sun/MySQL as well as from other parties. This encourages testing and use in more environments, which in turn enhances the feedback cycle, and improves quality.
