- make partitioning support multiple engine types in one table (compressed MyISAM and InnoDB)
- make row-based replication binlog events optionally include the original SQL statement
- make the
--base64-output=DECODE-ROWS option for mysqlbinlog include column names
I have done some QA and performance testing with it and it was solid. I look forward to using the InnoDB plugin with it. Maria and Falcon would get more early users if they were to release plugins for 5.1. That would also validate the handler plugin interface, as in it is pluggable when a new storage engine does not require a new MySQL release.
