How To Check A Site For SPDY Support With OpenSSL

A Stack Overflow thread with an example on how to check a server for SPDY support with OpenSSL:

openssl s_client -connect google.com:443 -nextprotoneg ''

The result I got from “OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014″ looked like this ( emphasis mine ):

CONNECTED(00000003)

The “Protocols advertised by server:” is the line you need.

HTTP Plugin for MySQL

There is a HTTP plugin for MySQL available at labs.mysql.com. Ulf Wendel covers it in more detail.

The development preview brings three APIs: key-document for nested JSON documents, CRUD for JSON mapped SQL tables and plain SQL with JSON replies. More so: MySQL 5.7.4 has SQL functions for modifying JSON, for searching documents and new indexing methods!

At this point I still have more questions than answers, but I’m definitely intrigued.
