It's not a priority right now, since the other database engines include workable built-in full text and we'd need to do 50x (seriously) more work to bundle in an external FTS. We basically have the Pg/Oracle code. MySQL's internal FTS isn't really as useful.
So, "dropped", no. "Backburnered" - definitely.
If you want/need FTS on MySQL, we can certainly chat about how to make that happen.
