We just released the latest Drizzle tarball (2010-10-11 milestone). There are a whole bunch of bug fixes, but there are two things that are interesting from a storage engine point of view:
- The Innobase plugin is now based on innodb_plugin 1.0.6
- The embedded_innodb engine is now named HailDB and requires HailDB, it can no longer be built with embedded_innodb.
Those of you following Drizzle fairly closely have probably noticed that we’ve lagged behind in InnoDB versions. I’m actively working on fixing that – both for the innobase plugin and for the HailDB library.
If building the HailDB plugin (which is planned to replace the innobase plugin), you’ll need the latest HailDB release (which as of writing is 2.3.1). We’re making good additions to the HailDB API to enable the storage engine to have the same features as the Innobase plugin.
