PBXT compiles without change under MySQL 5.1.25!

OK, now I know that the GA version of 5.1 is rapidly approaching. PBXT compiles with the latest release of MySQL without any changes!

This has never been the case before. Just search the PBXT code for MYSQL_VERSION_ID, and you will find things like:
#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID < 50114
and, even worse:
#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID < 60000
#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID >= 50124
#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID >= 60005
The lack of changes that affect pluggable storage engines can only mean that the bug fixes required are diminishing in scope.

And I believe this is a far better gauge of whether GA is close than any other marketing orientated statements! :)

PBXT 1.0.03 Alpha has been released!

I have released PBXT 1.0.03 Alpha and it is available for download from I have also posted binary plugins for a few platforms.

If you are building from source I have added a Quick Guide: Building and Installing PBXT from Source, which I hope makes the task really simple. If not, I would appreciate any feedback!

With this version I have completed the implementation of full-durability, and other features that are scheduled for RC and ultimately for the first GA release.

Still to be done is the Windows port which I plan to do before the first Beta release.

Please send any comments, questions, bug reports, etc. directly to me: paul dot mccullagh at primebase dot org.
