Wow!. New MySQL Community release – MySQL 5.0.67 is just out which as manual says first community release since 5.0.51b. I just recently complained about community release irregularity and I’m glad to see the new release after all.
I only hope this will not be one time event but MySQL will follow its own promises of regular schedule of source and binary MySQL Community releases.
My even deeper hope, though, is MySQL will finally become rational and will stop walking their customers (users of MySQL Enterprise version) over mine field and allow community to check code changes first because of pushing them to the customers. MySQL Enterprise branch had enough serious problems which have been caught quickly by community testing. This also will mean turning back from “what is easy to sell” to “what customers need” as a product driving priority.
