I try to keep up to date with what's happening and considering the availability of many blogs it's quite an educational reading. I love the openness of some of the blog where the developers try to work with the community and announce some great changes happening with the code.

The biggest thing that I find exciting is the stuff that's happening in MySQL 6.0. There's a lot of changes there, some are major ones. Here is a list of some links describing just some of them:
  • http://monty-says.blogspot.com/ - Yes Monty now has a blog and is working on a MyISAM engine replacement called Maria. It should be part of 6.0.
  • http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Falcon - Falcon a brand new engine being work on to replace InnoDB. This one is quite exciting as this is quite different from previous MySQL engines and is supposed to be quite faster and more scalable.
  • http://s.petrunia.net/blog/?p=33 - covers subquery optimizations in MySQL 6.0. This is a sore point in current stable releases.
  • http://www.mysql.com/mysql60/ - mysql page covering 6.0
  • http://mysqldba.blogspot.com/2007/04/mysql-60.html - another page describing some more changes happening in 6.0 and even later releases.
  • http://krow.livejournal.com/572937.html - Brian "Krow" Aker's Idle Thoughts - MySQL 6.0, Libevent
  • Lukas Smith also posted a couple of posts regarding MySQL and future releases: http://pooteeweet.org/blog/889 and http://pooteeweet.org/blog/983
  • http://blog.plasticfish.info/2007/11/28/isbn-978-1-8479-9168-3/ -
    It does not cover MySQL Cluster 5.1 Carrier Grade Edition, for the simple reason that MCCGE features are not part of the official mainline MySQL 5.1 release. However, those features will be part of MySQL 6.0 [yes, MySQL 6.0 is already starting to happen, and there are already some cool new Cluster, Replication, and XML features in the 6.0 tree, but I’m starting to get off-topic here…
  • http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/6.0/en/news-6-0-x.html
- documented 6.0 changes
  • http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/6.0/en/mysql-nutshell.html
- overview over some of the 6.0 changes

This is a preliminary list. I am sure I forgot to mention a lot of things. I'll try to update this as I find more information.

P.S. Thanks helgi for providing some of the missing links.
