Storage Engines and other Plugins: What's New?
MySQL Plugins are a vital part of the MySQL project. They allow users to extend the database server itself quickly and easily. But the database server is being constantly developed, and the Plugin API is too - new features are being added to it all the time!
In this talk I will talk about newer Plugin API extensions - what was implemented in MySQL and MariaDB in this area, how you can use this in your projects or organizations. You will learn about new plugins and plugin types, API enhancements, plugin-related SQL statements, and other features that makes plugins more powerful, easy, and fun to create and use.
