How many words are in a bar?

In the last two weeks, we’ve been working on several new projects together, and on August 1st we’ll release our “First Law of the Bar” project. The first law has the goal to help people understand how to measure how much a given sentence matters on a sentence scale.

The first law is in three sections, each explaining the meaning of a sentence or sentences in detail, and what the rules of English language usage are.

These articles are being posted in the following places:

The first law will be online as well.

After reading many of the “what’s new in PHP” lists recently, I was eager to update my “what new in MySQL” list with my knowledge of MySQL 5.5 and MySQL 5.6. Since that blog post was published, I have worked through the various changes in MySQL as announced on the MySQL home page and also had the wonderful opportunity to participate in some session at the recent MySQL Developer Days.

Since the MySQL 5.5 release, there have been a number of releases and significant new features released into MySQL core. The table below gives a summary of the major changes in MySQL 5.5 and the number of commits recorded since the 5.5 release.
