I am not sure if this is already addressed somewhere. I found the work-log with id 7440 (http://dev.mysql.com/worklog/task/?id=7440), but it looks like it does not cover a concept of "Logical Decoding".

"Logical Decoding" is a feature recently added to PostgresSQL 9.4 in December 14. The documentation can be found here: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.4/static/logicaldecoding-explanation.html. 

I consider this a great feature and others already build impressive architecture concepts based on this. See confluent's "Bottled water" as one example (http://blog.confluent.io/2015/04/23/bottled-water-real-time-integration-of-postgresql-and-...)

I report this feature request, as it looks like there is no such request so far. If this ticket at least starts a discussion about this topic, I would be very happy! I know the links I mention here are quite some long reads. I would very much appreciate if people would still take the time and have a look.

How to repeat:
Try to build a "Bottled Water" like application based on Mysql-replication-logs

Suggested fix:
The implementation could look similar to what PostgresSQL has.
