MySQL Community server released with security fix

MySQL Community Logo

After a longer than expected hiatus, MySQL Community Server is back with release 5.0.67.

There have been complaints about this delay, but the claim that the community edition was dead has proven to be groundless.

Being a maintenance release, this edition has no new features. There is an important security fix, though, and anyone using MySQL 5.0.x should read the release notes and act accordingly.


I think it's great that there's a new community binary release.

I would not go as far as to say that this one release is a clear indication of an underlying pattern. A sample of one cannot do that, really. I'm looking forward to seeing more community binary releases from Sun/MySQL.
