MySQL fork Drizzle goes beta


With the release of Build 1802, Drizzle, the community driven fork of MySQL, is now officially "beta" software. The new version includes an enhanced version of drizzledump which can now be used to migrate databases from MySQL to Drizzle without any intermediate files. When connected to a Drizzle server it will perform a normal dump, but it it detects a MySQL server it converts all structures and data into a Drizzle compatible format which can be sent directly to a Drizzle server.
