MySQL 5.1.38 Releases with InnoDB Plugin

The MySQL 5.1.38 release is available today with the InnoDB Plugin (1.0.4) included in the software distribution.  The InnoDB Plugin offers some key features:
  • Improved performance and scalability.
  • Important management features that will be very helpful to MySQL DBAs.    
I recommend you look into the new features available with the InnoDB Plugin. The InnoDB Plugin (1.0.4) is at end of beta cycle. This storage engine can replace the default InnoDB storage engine by making a few configuration changes.  Blog on Thursday, April 9, 2009 InnoDB Plugin Has Some Very Cool Features highlights the Oracle InnoDB Plugin.

i did some large queries tests and it shaved something like 3 seconds , before was 12 seconds and now result is timed at 9 seconds
So it's good to upgrade for performance (quad core machine)
