Luke has no name writes: Yesterday we discussed [MySQL founder] Monty Widenius's objections to the acquisition of MySQL by Oracle. Today, Oracle released a statement to address some of these issues. Among the facts, Oracle intends to continue releasing MySQL under the GPL, allow vendors to produce "any-license" third party engines, maintain the Reference Manual, invest millions into the product, and create a "customer advisory board". Thanks to for the link.
