I wish more discussion happened on the internals mailing list, but if you’re interested in finding out what’s upcoming/changing in MySQL 5.7, so far the best resources I’ve found are:
- The video (1h41m is worth a watch), and blog post from Todd Farmer
- A presentation from Morgan Tocker (I wonder if we’ll see this at FOSDEM too)
- All of Morgan Tocker’s posts tagged community
- The 5.7 release notes (in particular the change log)
I like this “train” development model, but I wonder how it really syncs with the labs releases. Multi-source replication is still against 5.7.2?
