I haven't been following MySQL's relationship with Oracle but MySQL
AB did make this press release in April:

http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/press-release/release_2006_21.html

  Earlier this month, MySQL and Innobase OY agreed to a multi-year
  extension of their licensing agreement.  InnoDB will continue to
  be among the best-supported database engines for MySQL -- at the
  highest level of the partner program.

  "MySQL users can continue to depend on InnoDB, knowing it is
  'business as usual' in terms of InnoDB development and the
  relationship between MySQL AB and the InnoDB development team,"
  said Heikki Tuuri, vice president of the InnoDB Group at Oracle.
