Frankly, this sounds like empty hyperbole to me. There is a LOT of work
left to do before we reach feature parity with the major players, let
alone become a "technology leader in the database field". I would
personally vote for just saying that this release brings with it a lot
of useful new features and performance improvements, and leave it up to
the reader to decide whether we're on a "trajectory moving beyond

If you want to compare where we are with the major players, I think it
would be more accurate to say that we're doing fairly well on OLTP
oriented features, but there is a lot of work left on OLAP
