Google Releases Improved MySQL Code

This is an interesting read.  I personally was not aware that Google was using MySQL for some of their backend, non-search related systems.  I think it is cool they are contributing their enhancements back to the MySQL community.  The code they are contributing include enhancements to high availability and manageability.

Personally, I was hoping that the enhancements would have included  fixes to the transaction engine that has plagued Sakai of late.  I still hold out hope that these transactional issues are cleared up at a very low level so that we do not have to perform backflips and handstands in the application code itself.
