Show Storage Engines

This feature changes the comment field displayed when the SHOW STORAGE ENGINES command is executed and XtraDB is the storage engine.

Before the Change:

mysql> show storage engines;
+------------+---------+----------------------------------------------------------------+--------------+------+------------+
| Engine     | Support | Comment                                                        | Transactions | XA   | Savepoints |
+------------+---------+----------------------------------------------------------------+--------------+------+------------+
| InnoDB     | YES     | Supports transactions, row-level locking, and foreign keys     | YES          | YES  | YES        |
...
+------------+---------+----------------------------------------------------------------+--------------+------+------------+
