It’s rather exciting that they’ve gone ahead and done this – Â and it’s not just a code drop:Â https://github.com/Tokutek/ft-engineÂ is where things are at, and recent commits were 2hrs and 18hrs ago which means that this is being maintained. This is certainly a good way to grow a developer community.
While being a MySQL engine is really interesting, the MongoDB integration is certainly something to watch – and may be something quite huge for Tokutek (after all, it’s the database engine parts of Mongo that are the most troublesome – along with the client library license).
