MySQL 5.6.10 was released as GA back in February, 2013. It means that by the time conference starts many users will have more than a year of real production use experience with this latest and greatest release in MySQL new history. During this BOF session I'd like to discuss specific use cases that demonstrate the impact of new MySQL 5.6 features in InnoDB, Replication and Optimizer, real performance and scalability impact of this release, as well as most important bugs that are still waiting to be addressed. The idea is to increase adoption of MySQL 5.6 via open and honest discussion of its strong points and help Oracle and other vendors of MySQL forks to concentrate on most important problems that can still be solved in frames of this version.
