You blink and there is a new version. I have not seen an Planet MySQL release as yet about this new version. Release Notes.
I’d like to say I installed it, but I downloaded the Linux – Generic 2.6 (x86, 64-bit), TAR file, only to find it contains 6 rpm files. #fail, I’m using Ubuntu.
You have to scroll to the bottom of the list (another stupid thing for a generic binary choice) to get Linux – Generic 2.6 (x86, 64-bit), Compressed TAR Archive. Double #fail
