MySQL 5.5.21 Installer for Lion

Category : Technology/MySQL5dot5dot21.txt

We've just built a new MySQL version 5.5.21 installer for Mac OS X Lion. You can download it right now from here.

If you've been using our previous installers, this will upgrade and migrate all your data from previous MySQL 5.1.x and 5.5.x installations. Very convenient in all its one-click goodness.

P.S.: Next up - updating all our database client libraries to match with all these latest versions - for MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite3.

PostgreSQL 9.1.2 for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Installer

Category : Technology/postgres9dot1dot2Installer.txt

I've just released our one-click PostgreSQL 9.1.2 for Mac OS X Lion Installer

It's the very latest Postgres version. It'll update a previous-versioned Postgres database, especially one that was set up by our previous installers.

And it won't need any fiddling with "syscntl" and "shmmax" on your Mac, whatever those mean.

And, our Postgres won't stop your Mac from going to sleep - great for a MacBook Pro-based development system.

It's the Postgres installer that doesn't suck. Get it now :-)

P.S.: I'm now working on a MySQL 5.5.20 installer. When this is done, we've got up to par with all the very latest versions. And we've updated all our database-access client libraries as well, including SQLite3. All up to date. I've been working towards this for a long time.
