The FederatedX Storage Engine for MySQL is a project to continue and expidite the development of the MySQL Federated Storage Engine. It is based on the Federated Storage Engine code found MySQL 5.1 releases.
There are many feature requests and bug fixes for the Federated Storage Engine that have had a need to happen for a long time. The FederatedX Storage Engine for MySQL is a project that I intend to make this happen. Several specific features:
* Multiple connections
* Pushdown conditions - LIMIT, non-indexed columns
