Installed MySQL 5.2 today

You think I'm kidding? No way!

There is this web page (I blogged about it a few months ago) where you get an interface to BitKeeper to watch the development activities:

Just for fun I replaced 5.1 with 5.2 and - it worked. So I followed the instructions from the manual and only replaced 5.1 with 5.2 again. This way, I ended up with a MySQL 5.2.0-alpha installation:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 3 to server version: 5.2.0-alpha

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.


I doubt that there are many (if any at all) differences to the current 5.1 development source - but it's nice to see that MySQL 5.2 is on the way.

And I'm really excited to hear about the new features that are planned for 5.2!

There are no differences at the moment between 5.2 and 5.2, and there will not be for sometime to come :)

First we have to finish 5.1!
