MySQL on Amazon S3: ClouSE version 1.0b.1.4 is released

OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE version 1.0b.1.4.  In this release we fixed some of the known ClouSE Beta limitations that required workarounds in some configurations.

In particular, now the popular BuddyPress WordPress plugin can store its tables in ClouSE without a patch that worked around the missing features.  If you’re using the patched version of BuddyPress 1.6.1 provided by us, you can now upgrade ClouSE and use the original BuddyPress sources.  Thank you for your patience and commitment!

Here is the summary of changes:

  • Support for latest MySQL 5.5

Now ClouSE supports MySQL thru 5.5.28.  To keep the distribution small, we don’t build binaries for MySQL prior to 5.5.17 anymore.  If you need one, please contact us.

  • NULL support

Now ClouSE supports NULL in all field types.  Previously, only CHAR, VARCHAR and BLOB fields could support NULL.  This fixes the following Beta limitation: Integer, date / time, decimal, float, bit, enum, and set fields must be declared NOT NULL.

  • TRUNCATE support

Now ClouSE supports the TRUNCATE statement.

The software can be downloaded at for FREE.

The release notes are available here.

Please let us know if you run into any issues trying WordPress (or directly MySQL) on S3. We’ll make sure to address them as our 1st priority.
