MySQL to drop Berkeley DB storage engine, add memcache plugin

August 31, 2006

[From linux.com]

With the 5.1.12 release, MySQL will be dropping the Berkeley DB (BDB) storage engine from its list of supported database engines. Some observers have suggested that this move is connected to Oracle's purchase of Sleepycat, and that InnoDB may be next. However, Brian Aker, MySQL's director of architecture, says that they're unlikely to drop InnoDB, and the Berkeley engine is being dropped for technical reasons. Aker also announced the first release of a memcache storage engine plugin for MySQL.
