PBXT and the Community

I would just like to thank all those who have downloaded and tested PBXT for their help and suggestions. I have updated my to-do list to include all the issues raised so far.

Although my own performance tests indicate that PBXT has great potential, the more general MySQL performance tests show that the implementation is still in its early days.

Of course, there is still a lot to be done. Everybody knows there is a big difference between a running program and a production system. It is the most challenging part of writing a program. But also the most rewarding because it will eventually see the program being put to useful work.

Some people at MySQL have expressed surprise that an effort to develop a new engine has come out of the community. Personally I think I was more surprised that I am already part of the community!

I guess I am used to the turf wars that pervade most other large companies, so I really was not expecting the warm welcome I have received from everybody.

Thanks for making PBXT part of the community!
