A few months ago, in MySQL 5.6.4, I took a brief look at MySQL 5.6's new InnoDB Fulltext support; see Initial impressions of InnoDB Fulltext. There have been quite a few new point releases since then, and we're into RC releases of MySQL 5.6 now, so I thought I'd take another look.

I joined as employee thirty-something, so running HR meant that I was more or less involved with hiring all of the 400 or so employees who joined after me. I knew pretty much everyone by name.
