Is InnoDB dead? - MySQL

Hi, As InnoDB has been acquired by Oracle, it that means the future version of MySQL will not ship with InnoDB? Will it cause licensing problem if I still use InnoDB after a few years later? Thanks.....

    Default Is InnoDB dead?

    Hi,

    As InnoDB has been acquired by Oracle, it that means the future version
    of MySQL will not ship with InnoDB?

    Will it cause licensing problem if I still use InnoDB after a few years
    later?

    Thanks..

    No announcement has been made one way or the other. Anything else would be pure
    speculation.

    The current InnoDB source code is licensed under the GPL. So even if
    Oracle decides to release future versions of InnoDB under a commercial
    license only, the community still has the current sources available.

    > Hi,
    InnoDB is not dead. As you see from our website, Oracle/Innobase was chosen
    as a MySQL AB Partner of the Year 2006 [url]http://www.innodb.com/index.php[/url]. We
    are hiring more top developers to development of InnoDB:

    I have not heard of any such plans from MySQL AB. Since current versions of
    both MySQL and InnoDB are under the GPL, anyone can release a MySQL distro
    that includes InnoDB. InnoDB cannot really be removed from under MySQL
    currently.

    The OEM agreement between MySQL AB and Innobase Oy was extended in March
    2006. Though no one can guarantee what happens in the very long run.
    Companies can change the license conditions of future open source product
    versions, companies can get acquired, and so on.
