Reading PlanetMySQL today, I discovered that Alex Gorbachev’s announcement that he has released the first public beta of his Oracle Grid Control plugin for MySQL was not aggregated! This is probably because Alex is primarily working on our Oracle space and so his feed isn’t on planet.
This plugin has been under development since 2006 and this is a major achievement.
Knowing that my feed is aggregated, and not willing to let this news and this amazing work go unnoticed by the MySQL community during the conference (I am at MySQLConf listening to Amazon.com’s CTO speak right now!)
In any event, if you missed them inline up there, here’s a link to Alex’s announcement with some impressive screenshots, and here’s a link to the product’s home page.
You can also go directly to the product download page by clicking here:
And check out the very positive comments from the first testers already on the announcement post.
Congratulations and thanks, Alex!
