Oracle has shown it's intention to further support open source. This is key as open source enters the mainstream in business and in light of the success IBM has had with the Eclipse project, and Sun recently looking at purchasing PostgresSQL.

As some of you may already know, Oracle has move into the MySQL Market, buying its main transactional and strongest storage engine, INNODB: Oracle buys Innobase.

Would this movement affects open source database in a bad way? Do you think that it's a step from Oracle to destroy this engine in a near future? I don't think so. Oracle perhaps want to have the control over this engine to easily port MySQL applications to be under Oracle system.

ILIAS and Innodb. Perhaps it's a good time to evaluate a migration, though it is for sure a difficult step. ILIAS 4.0 would be a good appointment ;)

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
