Dear colleagues, my name is Smail and I'm new to this community and I hope you go easy on me.
I'm using MySql for 7 years now, even before MariaDb was a thing.
We believed Monty and migrated immediately, but since then nothing happened.
PostgreSql is way ahead of you these days, I would have migrated again, if our system was small.
Recently I was excited about the upcoming features namely "Window Functions" and JSON, but then I was disappointed when I found out that you don't plan to support JSON DATA TYPE (MySql 5.7.8).
Dynamic Column != JSON, they don't have anything in common.
If I have to create columns, why would I use JSON, I can just create normal tables.
engine=Connect -> I strongly recommend dropping that one, It's way too new and doesn't support transactions.
We want JSON Data Type support in this version!
