What's happened to the MySQL Storage Engine Vendor Advisory Board?

As most of you know, the Engine Vendor Advisory Board was setup by Oracle under terms that Oracle specified for themselves when acquiring MySQL. I am referring to point number 8, on the 10 point list that played a major role in quieting nervous Bureaucrats in Europe.

PrimeBase Technologies is a member of the Board and so far we have heard nothing of a meeting this year.

Has the Board been quietly disbanded?

If so, what does this mean for the other promises on Oracles list...

UPDATE: We are in contact with Oracle concerning this. I will keep you all posted. Hopefully it was just a communications error.

PBXT "Secrets" at the MySQL Conference

In my presentation tomorrow at the MySQL Conference I plan to talk about some aspects of PBXT that I have never spoken about before. Here are the details of the presentation:

Update on the PBXT Storage Engine

Of course nothing about the engine is really a secret, if you are prepared to read the code. But who does that right? I am pretty sure that not even developers of other engines have spent much time (if any) on that.

But really, there are some gems stuck away in those X 1000 lines of code, and I plan to pick out a few tomorrow and show them to you. So don't miss it! :)
