While there's many in the open-source community that remain unhappy with Oracle, including the direction of the MySQL database server to the point that Fedora will now ship MariaDB instead, MySQL 5.6 was released this morning by the software giant.

Oracle says their general availability release of MySQL 5.6 has increased performance, scalability, reliability, and manageability over earlier releases of this open-source MySQL database software.

MySQL 5.6 also introduces NoSQL access to InnoDB, improved sub-query optimizations, online Data Definition Language operations, and new instrumentation in the Performance Schema.

Oracle continues to advertise, "New features and enhancements in MySQL 5.6 are available to MySQL users in the MySQL Community Edition."

More details on the Oracle MySQL 5.6 release can be via the Oracle.com press release.
