MySQL 5.7 -- New Features, Better Performance, and Things That Will Break


Comments are closed.

Really happy to hear about the changes to logging. Being able to switch on logging on a production server without restarting mysqld will be massive for us!

Glad to hear the changes that are coming, we do support a lot of clients using wordpress. Hopefully there will be enough push from the MySQL side to encourage an update on the wordpress front. In general this was a nice overview of what is coming. Some more in depth discussion would be nice to add as well.

exposure to new features (visual explain, max statement time) and potential breakages was very helpful.

This was my favorite kind of talk: One that showed me just how much I don't know on a topic. Dave was engaging and fun. Kept me awake after lunch for sure.

Dave is a quiet mannered individual, but don't let that fool you, he knows how to engage a crowd. This talk was packed with lots of good info, and also gives a glimpse into the company behind MySQL. That combined with some good humour made this a winning talk for me. One suggestion, the slides were a little info heavy and under-designed. Maybe an area to try and improve moving forward.

Great talk! Lots of good info! I found out there is going to be a killer feature for me in the upcoming release so I am going to hold out a while with MySQL rather than migrate to MariaDB as I had planned earlier.

Valuable information and explanation of new features. Glad to see the stricter security defaults.
