Drizzle client and protocol library 0.1 released

The Drizzle project is very interesting to follow: a back-to-basics version of MySQL.

Yesterday they released a first version of their new client and protocol library. It's backward compatible with MySQL wire-protocol, so you it provides a easy upgrade path.

There are some interesting features in the new library. The one I find most interesting is the complete non-blocking I/O support. That is one that I definitively want to play with.

It should be a good fit for my AnyEvent-based XMPP components.
