MySQL 5.5 is now GA!

This is going to be a goooood day. MySQL 5.5 just went GA and I have time to play with it this morning …

Read the offi­cial release announce­ment here.

I last played with MySQL 5.5 a cou­ple of month ago. When replac­ing the bina­ries only, eg. no change in the con­fig­u­ra­tion  file I have per­son­ally seen a 150% per­for­mance improve­ment over MySQL 5.1 for cer­tain work­loads. If you have larger multi-core machines you’ll def­i­nitely want this — some of the Per­cona and Google patches that were incor­po­rated work won­ders for MySQL scal­a­bil­ity and thread performance.

No time to blog … must go play …
