Oracle Starts Work on MySQL 5.6

From PCWorld:
With work under way to build the next version of the MySQL relational database software, Oracle is focusing much of its efforts on improving the software's performance and replication capabilities, according to an Oracle executive overseeing the software's development.

The company's developers are making notable improvements to the core InnoDB storage engine, which should make the database system more responsive.
