One of the open-source projects that Oracle is keeping around from Sun Microsystems is MySQL and just in time for the holidays they have put out the MySQL 5.5 release. The general availability release of MySQL 5.5 brings many new features to this popular database server.

Among the MySQL 5.5 features are improved multi-threaded performance, usage of the InnoDB engine by default on new tables rather than MyISAM, InnoDB optimizations, an optional semi-synchronous replication plug-in, a performance schema, and much more.

MySQL 5.5 Community Server can be downloaded at MySQL.com.
