New Community release - MySQL 5.0.67
By Giuseppe Maxia on Aug 08, 2008
After a long delay, a new community binary has been released. MySQL 5.0.67 has reached the mirrors and it's ready for download.
The list of changes is quite long and includes a tiny incompatible change.
Every version of MySQL ships with sample option files, called my-small.cnf, my-large.cnf, my-huge.cnf.cnf. In this version, these files contain a line saying
That won't affect existing servers. However, if you are starting a new server using one of the sample option files, be aware that the Federated engine is disabled. If you need to enable it, you comment the line with skip-federated.
In MySQL 5.1 it's the opposite. The server ships with federated disabled by default, and if you want to enable it, you must add a federated directive in your options file.
