PBXT 1.0.06 Beta Released

On friday we released the second Beta version of PBXT. PBXT is a transactional storage engine for MySQL 5.1 and 6.0. You can find out more about the engine at

PBXT is pluggable, so it can be built separately from the MySQL tree, and loaded dynamically at runtime using the LOAD PLUGIN statement.

You can download PBXT from here. A "quick guide" to building and installing the plugin is provided. I have also updated the documentation for this version.

There are no major new features in this release because we are working towards the RC version in December. But we wrote some release notes to prove we have been busy :)

There is now also a version of PBXT available for Drizzle. You will find the source code here:

By the way, did any of you see this report: Sun releases MySQL 5.1?! It's dated 7 Nov, but no sign of the new release on the MySQL website ... to bad.
