Re: Any plans on supporting FULL-TEXT index, per-table tablespaces and partitioning?

The plan for tablespaces is to have a single, default, per-server tablespace with an option for explicit named tablespaces. This would allow you to define per-table tablespaces. That said, I strongly encourage you not to do this as multiple tablespaces mean a number of independent caches (each has separate page and record caches) which is a difficult or impossible scheme to manage effectively. Why do you want per-table tablespaces?

Full-text search hasn't been resolved. While Falcon has always had full text search, the Falcon and MySQL ideas of what full search means is radically different. Falcon text search is multi-column / multi-table intended to support and web-style presentation of abstract by score while the current server concept is considerably more restrictive. We plan to reconcile the differences, but when or how hasn't been determined (I will probably lose this one and be forced kicking and screaming to the current [adjectives omitted] model).

Falcon will, of course, support partitioning. If there's a problem, please submit a bug report.
