Libdrizzle 5.1.2 released

Written for Drizzle Client & Protocol Library by Andrew Hutchings on 2013-01-18

The latest version of the Libdrizzle Redux series of Libdrizzle has been released! Changes in this version:

This is mostly a bug fix release with several important changes:
* Non-blocking Windows connections are now more stable
* Improvements to Windows building
* Unix Socket connections are now more stable
* Memory allocation/freeing has been greatly improved
* Network packet buffer now much more flexible
* Many performance improvements (bundled drizzle_binlogs tool is now around 10x faster on my i7 laptop)

API chages:
* drizzle_query_str() has been removed, drizzle_query() with a 0 byte length parameter now does the same thing.

I will be at FOSDEM 2013 speaking about Libdrizzle in the MySQL dev room. I look forward to seeing you all there!

Libdrizzle Redux 5.0-alpha1 released

Written for Drizzle Client & Protocol Library by Andrew Hutchings on 2012-12-09

The first alpha of our new connector for MySQL servers has been released called Libdrizzle Redux.

The differences between this and the older Libdrizzle are:

* The server-side functionality has been removed, it no longer acts as both a client and server API.
* The Drizzle prototype library functions have been removed. It now only talks to MySQL compatible servers.
* API functions have been simplified. In Libdrizzle there was a big confusion over whether the application or library should be doing the allocation and freeing of objects. It is now less ambiguous.
* New binlog API added. The library can now connect as a slave or mysqlbinlog client and retrieve binlog events.

With many more cool features to come in future versions.
