MySQL 5.6: Improvements in Thread Pool
MySQL Thread Pool has now been updated for the MySQL 5.6 version. Obviously, with the much higher concurrency of the MySQL Server in 5.6 it's important that the thread pool doesn't add any new concurrency problem when scaling up to 60 CPU threads. The good news is that the thread pool works even better in MySQL 5.6 than in MySQL 5.5. MySQL 5.6 has fixed even more issues when it comes to execution of many concurrent queries and this means that the thread pool provides even more stable throughput almost independent of the number of queries sent to it in parallel.
jQuery 1.10.0 and 2.0.1 Released
It’s a wonderful day for a software release. Such a wonderful day, we’re doing two software releases! Today it’s jQuery 1.10.0 and jQuery 2.0.1 making their debut — five years to the day after jQuery 1.2.6 was released.
A simultaneous release isn’t always easy, but it can be very satisfying. The team is certainly satisfied with this duo of deliveries; those of you who have already upgraded to the 1.9/2.0 level should have an easy time with these versions. If you’re upgrading older code, the advice in the jQuery 1.9 upgrade guide still applies to these two releases as well. Also don’t forget that jQuery. 2.0 doesn’t support IE 6, 7, or 8 since we’re leaving that work to the 1.x branch. If you need some help updating or keeping older pre-1.9 jQuery code going, don’t forget about the jQuery Migrate plugin.

jQuery 1.10 Beta 1 Released
Today the team is releasing jQuery 1.10 Beta 1. This release should be a relatively easy upgrade for any code that has already been updated for jQuery 1.9/2.0, and it doesn’t introduce a lot of breaking changes–at least not that we know of! That’s why we do beta releases. You tell us.
Something was listening on Port 80 and preventing my local webserver from working on my Windows XP laptop. Here’s how I tracked it down: Hit Windows Key + R, which brings up the Run dialog, then type “cmd” and press enter. You’ll be on a command line.
