MySQL goes Firebird

FB Community News reports:

"The new transaction database was developed by Jim Starkey, a noted database software architect who joined MySQL in February", Urlocker said in an interview at the LinuxWorld conference in Boston. "MySQL recognized that Starkey's Netfrastructure had a full relational database. The database is a jewel in the rough, a new engine with a more modern architecture, oriented for use with large-scale applications." What a nice thing to say about Firebird's design. Users will recognize that Firebird is the polished jewel.

There are bugs and BUGs

From Dmitry Yemanov:

Consider it a bughunting success story 🙂

Some time ago we’ve got a bugreport about bugcheck #205 (index bucket overfilled) appearing during the database restore on a v2.0 server.

So far so good.
