This milestone signifies that Oracle, the company behind MySQL, will cease to provide official updates, bug fixes, or security patches for MySQL 5.7. As the landscape of transactional data processing continues to evolve, MySQL’s limitations are becoming increasingly apparent. For MySQL 5.7 users, it’s a time to reassess, rethink, and potentially, retool.
