[1]"Current Stable": We support only the current stable RHEL6/Centos6 release, because there is no official (i.e. RedHat provided) method to support or download the latest OpenSSL on RHEL/CentOS versions prior to 6.5. Similarly, and also as a result thereof, there is no official Percona way to support the latest Percona Server builds on RHEL/CentOS versions prior to 6.5. Additionally, many users will need to upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.1g or later (due to the Heartbleed vulnerability), and this OpenSSL version is not available for download from any official RHEL/Centos repository for versions 6.4 and prior. For any officially unsupported system, src.rpm packages may be used to rebuild Percona Server for any environment. Please contact our support service if you require further information on this.

[2]TokuDB: there is no TokuDB package available for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Debian 6.0 (only Percona Server is available for these releases), as compiling TokuDB requires the latest cmake and gcc, and there is no way to install gcc on these releases without either upgrading the OS or producing a build that has odd package interlinks.

[3]RHEL: this includes RedHat, CentOS, Oracle Linux
