Mysql 5

July 19, 2006 by This post is closed for comments.   This post is marked as obsolete.

Mysql 5 brings a bit more power, there are four major new features in MySQL 5.0: stored procedures, views, security upgrades, and triggers.

Previously if one wanted these features using open source, the only real alternative was to use PostgreSQL, which just didnt have the performance of mysql.

Would really like to see a benchmark against a closed source database like MS SQL 2005.
