I just noticed that the MySQL workitem
was just dropped from 4.2 just as your about to release - and now it has a 4.3 tag. Is this accurate? Are you cancelling MySQL support for 4.2?
Unfortunately, that's right. We've started working on this task and it was finished for PostgreSQL (MySQL could be implement almost the same way). Here
is the branch. But we don't like source code quality. That's why we've decided to postpone and refactor it first. Maybe, we'll implement it a new branch for 4.20 later so our community can use it
A separate branch would be great or having it as one of the very first changesets in 4.3 Dev branch so it can be easily back-ported to 4.2 without breaking 4.2 plugins would be a huge win.
As always, we appreciate your hard work, and looking forward to 4.2 release.
