"Widenuis has now setup an new company called Monty Program AB. His new company so far has a basic mediawiki based wiki that clearly indicates he intends to keep working on MySQL database elements, specifically the Maria engine - albeit outside of the confines of Sun Microsystems.

"Widenuis was livid about the way that the MySQL 5.1 release happened which he thought was incomplete and loaded with bugs. Sun countered that Widenuis was entitled to his opinion, but in their view MySQL 5.1 was a solid release.

""The main reason for leaving was that I am not satisfied with the way the MySQL server has been developed," Widenuis blogged."
