"MySQL 3.23.34 is now finally released. It took a little
extra time to do this as we added Berkeley DB and Innobase to the
MySQL source distribution. In MySQL 3.23.35 we will probably also
add GEMINI tables."
"The reason for adding the table handlers in 3.23 and not in 4.0
is that the table handler should not make a standard MySQL
application less stable (If they don't use the new table handlers
of course, in which case unexpected things may happen as the new
table handlers is not as tested as the rest of the MySQL code).
This will give us a little more freedom to some of the changes we
want to do in 4.0."
