"One of the biggest hurdles that Oracle faced when acquiring Sun
Microsystems was handling the open source MySQL database.
"There were concerns about how the open source database would
fare under Oracle's leadership, but those concerns are now being
put to rest by Oracle with the release of MySQL 5.5
""MySQL 5.5 delivers significant performance and scalability
enhancements," Monica Kumar senior director of product marketing at
Oracle told InternetNews.com. "Oracle is committed to MySQL and
we're very focused on growing the community."
"MySQL 5.5 was first available in development milestone builds
at the end of 2009. In April, Oracle released the first public beta
of MySQL 5.5, enabling InnoDB as the default engine for MySQL."
