New MySQL Transactional Engine: PrimeBase XT (pbxt), with benchmarks

A new GPL licensed transactional engine for MySQL is now available.

It is called PrimeBase XT (pbxt). It provides all the benefits of transactional engines such as InnoDB. This includes referential integrity (RI) and multiversion concurrency control (MVCC).

The benchmarks are good for this engine.

More high quality transactional engines is what MySQL needs now, since Oracle's purchase of InnoDB. MySQL responded with buying solidDB, and hiring Jim Starkey to develop the Falcon engine in-house.
