As you might noticed there are no recent MySQL Community versions available for download from MySQL Download Area This applies both to binaries (which is expected with new polices) but also to the source files which were promised to be available.
So what is if you would like to use recent MySQL code while staying with community version ? I chatted with Monty on this topic today.
So, if you need mysql binaries for new versions you have 2 options:
- Use your distribution vendor’s builds (in Gentoo, Ubuntu and Debian)
- or Build your own binaries from sources
