This presentation covers the new features such as a true data dictionary that will allow atomic schema changes via DDL, Common Table Expressions, Roles, and much more. This is your guided tour of the latest from MySQL and you will want to know the new features before you have to upgrade.

Interesting !!!

Interesting talk. Hope we can upgrade soon.
Didn't get a dolphin though so :(

Enjoyed the talk! The speaker was clear and understandable, even from the back.
The slides were useful and to the point and really got me hyped about MySQL 8.

Shame it's seemingly a long way from production release.
