GRAPH Engine source in MySQL 5.0.86-d10 available now

It’s time to play! A special thanks particularly to Antony Curtis for the excellent smart and actually very speedy coding, and for just being a great guy to work with. If you would like to utilise his ace MySQL knowledge and coding skills, do talk to me!

Right now, we have a source tarball available for you, patching OQGRAPH on top of a MySQL 5.0.86-d9-Sail (OurDelta) source. As you know MySQL 5.0 does not have engine plugins so patching is the only way we can put it in. This OQGRAPH codebase is licensed under GPLv2+.

Even though we’ve successfully built it on several platforms and architectures, since this is the first public release we’d like you to try it first, as we’re sure that there might be problems on some platforms. When we catch and fix those, we can do proper package builds.

You will find the link to the source tarball, and other necessarily instruction and configuration, on the documentation page. It’s tempting to skim through it and just start playing, but I recommend you really read through first: this engine is quite different. Please explore, and tell us what you think!
