Libdrizzle 5.1.2 released and Libdrizzle at FOSDEM

Libdrizzle is getting better and better with every release, and to reflect this we have two announcements to make.

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
API chages:
  • drizzle_query_str() has been removed, drizzle_query() with a 0 byte length parameter now does the same thing.
As always you can download the tarball and documentation from the Libdrizzle Launchpad Page.

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.
