Why one may wonder, it’s just Swedish beer (State of Doplhin, MySQL UC 2006).
One week ago Jim Starkey sent message http://www.firebirdnews.org/?p=1742 so he will not work for MySQL anymore and starting new project. While that’s fully Jim Starkey’s personal decision, I expected some comments about Falcon future development from MySQL / Sun side. Jim was not just ordinary developer, but lead of project and main architect of Falcon and his leaving may change a lot. For now MySQL’s calm seems stunned or indifferent to Falcon’s destiny.
Falcon has being developed for about 2.5 years, and despite it named “beta” stage, it sill crashes in our quite simple benchmarks, so it’s very optimistic “beta”. That’s why I wonder if this project will be ever finished, especially when main architect left it.
