First of all, Libdrizzle 5.1.2 has been released. This release has several major bug fixes and performance enhancements. Changes are as follows:
- Non-blocking Windows connections are now more stable
- Improvements to Windows building
- Unix Socket connections are now more stable
- Memory allocation/freeing cleanups (for performance and ease of code)
- Network packet buffer now much more flexible
- Many performance improvements (the bundled drizzle_binlogs tool is now around 10x faster on my i7 laptop)
- Several other minor bug fixes
- drizzle_query_str() has been removed, drizzle_query() with a 0 byte length parameter now does the same thing.
I'm also going to be giving a talk entitled "Libdrizzle Redux, the next-gen MySQL compatible connector" on Sunday 3rd Feb in the MySQL devroom at FOSDEM. This will be a great chance to find out more about the work we have been doing on the connector and how it can benefit you.
