Topic: C-bindings for MySQL

I was reading in Agile web development that you get better performance using C-bindings for MySQL
over the default MySQL adapter.

Is the performance boost worth it in most cases?

Re: C-bindings for MySQL

It's just a simple gem install, so I definitely think it's worth it.

cool, I wasn't sure if it was still faster. Since I haven't really heard anyone talking about it recently I thought maybe they'd updated the default adapter or something.

Thanks for the info.
