5.1, Innodb Plugin Release

In MySQL 5.1 related new, Innodb has announced the release of their Innodb Plugin Engine for MySQL.

So why do I blog about it?

Because the Innodb plugin engine is the default engine Drizzle :)

Monty Taylor finished up the work last night to import it into Drizzle, and I just finished my review of the engine and have pushed it into our main branch.

Some of the advantages:

  • Fast index creation: add or drop indexes without copying the data
  • Data compression: shrink tables, to significantly reduce storage and i/o
  • New row format: fully off-page storage of long BLOB, TEXT, and VARCHAR columns
  • File format management: protects upward and downward compatibility
  • INFORMATION_SCHEMA tables: information about compression and locking
