New features include semi-synchronous replication, InnoDB by default and new SIGNAL/RESIGNAL support for exception handling. Above all, Oracle stressed that they are comitted to further MySQL open source development and that they see it as a complentary technology to their proprietary Oracle database.

"MySQL 5.5 remains and future versions will remain, open source under the GPL license," Tomas Ulan, vice president of engineering for MySQL at Oracle said.
