So at the MySQL Connect conference today, Oracle announced MySQL 5.6 RC. Lots of improvements and features it seems but I didn't really spot anything that emphasized optimized memory usage. Anyone familiar enough with 5.6 to give any rough benchmarks for memory usage? I guess it's cool Oracle's adding all these features, but I feel reduced memory consumption should definitely be a priority. But I guess not everything is running on lebs ;)
Here's their press release which gives the best overall changes: http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/1855300
