5.4.0 was released with a change in the MySQL Binary distributions, delivering only 1 64bit Linux platform and two Sun Solaris platforms. This was officially announced on April 21 2009 however the 5.4.0 Release Notes state 05 April 2009. So it’s not a big deal, but consistency would be nice.
I’ve seen in a few posts 5.4.1, so I decided to try it out. Spending the time to read what’s changed in 2 months with the 5.4.1 Release Notes before I go downloading and installing, you read.
This release does not differ from 5.4.0 except that binary distributions are available for all MySQL-supported platforms.
Is this going to be the new policy from Sun? Release for Solaris platforms first, then later release for other platforms?
