This release is based on MySQL 5.7.19 and includes all the bug fixes in it. Percona Server 5.7.19-17 is now the current GA release in the 5.7 series. All software developed by Percona is open-source and free. Details of this release can be found in the 5.7.19-17 milestone on Launchpad.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (including CentOS 5 and other derivatives), Ubuntu 12.04 and older versions are no longer supported by Percona software. The reason for this is that these platforms reached end of life, will not receive updates and are not recommended for use in production.
Included the Percona MyRocks storage engine
MyRocks for Percona Server is currently experimental and not recommended for production deployments until further notice. You are encouraged to try it in a testing environment and provide feedback or report bugs.
