Re: Is it soon 'end of this year'?


OK .. we will check this again.

But in principle we want (always) not to have any external dependencies in
our prorams/apllications at at all. We link statically everything to the
extend possible. People should download and install SQlyog with a single
click and it will just work. PERIOD! :-) That is what Windows users expect
from an installer. How do we accomplish this with the MariaDB API? Compile
it as a .lib/.dll and bundle it with our installer and let the installer
copy it into the installation directory? Or should what you describe here
happen at compile-time (linking statically)? Also please remember that
SQLyog is a Windows program and our compiler is Visual Studio (2010
version, currently).

Maybe you can provide *Windowssand Visual Studio pecific* guidelines?.

Also (BTW) 1- 1½ years ago I asked similar questions and the only reply I
had was (very abstractly) that MariaDB's mplementation was far superior to
Oracle's. I was actually *despearately* asking for help at that time. The
reply ("we are the best")  was very little helpful and we have already lost
significant business due to this.

Anyway, I  wili ask our developer team to recover as much information as
possible due to this.
