That’s really GOOD NEWS to the whole community.
After a long wait (half a year or so), the latest source of MySQL Proxy was finally published yesterday, along with an increase of about 10K lines of C code and 2.6K lines of Lua code. Yes, it is not only alive but also under busy construction, exactly the same as what Kay promised. Thanks to Jan and Kay for developing this sexy software and enduring complaints from guys like me who are not patient enough!
The project’s repository has been moved from svn.mysql.com to launchpad.net at: https://launchpad.net/mysql-proxy. So the version control system for MySQL Proxy has been switched to Bazaar, which is considered more suitable for distributed development.
You can now checkout a copy of the latest source code by using the following command:
$ bzr branch lp:mysql-proxy
There is also a mailing list at https://launchpad.net/~mysql-proxy-discuss, where you can ask questions about MySQL Proxy.
For more details, please visit https://launchpad.net/mysql-proxy.
P.S. I’ll keep an eye on this project and post my suggestions/ideas on the discussion list when I have some.
