New from O'Reilly: Updated reference keeps pace with MySQL's growth and changes.

[From O'Reilly]

Sebastopol, CA—MySQL has held steady as one of the great open source success stories, and there is no indication that this will change in the foreseeable future, in spite of its recent acquisition. "Although MySQL AB has recently been purchased by Sun Microsystems, the software and the organization has remained intact," reports author Russell J. T. Dyer.

More importantly, the software will be broadly adopted by larger companies now that it has the backing of a multi-billion dollar company like Sun. Sun can assure large companies, institutions, and governments that MySQL is here to stay and that it's fully supported."
