I was a little dismayed after spending several hours updating my chef files and dealing with deprecated features and finally getting everything up and running, only to learn that HandlerSocket hasn’t been implemented in 5.6. I missed that note in my first glance at the “Changes”
I’ve only found minimal reference to it, a couple questions on SO, and here, but with no answers. The only semblance of a response referenced it not being compatible and that you may “consider” it. I can only assume that that was during the Alphas of Percona 5.6 since I’ve looked around at DeNA, and they’re currently supporting 5.6.12.
It’s a major component of our service, without it there’s no chance of us upgrading with Percona. I’ve been patiently waiting for the fulltext capabilities of 5.6, but it can’t be at the expense of “nosql”.
I was hoping someone could clear the air and provide a more firm answer as to whether Percona will be re-including HandlerSocket.
