MySQL Hiding Free Releases

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Something odd is happening with MySQL.  It's described here -
http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2006/12/29/where-to-get-recent-mysql-version/
- and if you check the MySQL downloads, it seems to be confirmed.

The 5.0 download page - http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.0.html - is
showing version 5.0.27.  Yet on the FTP site you can get the source for
5.0.30 - ftp://ftp.mysql.com/pub/mysql/src

The 5.1 download page - http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.1.html - is
showing version 5.1.14-beta, but there's nothing on the ftp site.

Looking at the announce mailing list, the latest announced versions are
5.1.14-beta - http://lists.mysql.com/announce/420 - and 5.0.26 -
http://lists.mysql.com/announce/398

Release notes for 5.0 -
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/releasenotes-es.html - indicate
that 5.0.30 is the latest and for 5.1 -
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news.html - 5.1.14

So it seems that 5.0 has not been updated, but 5.1 has.

This seems to be related to the enterprise/community split -
http://www.planetmysql.org/kaj/?p=64 - which indicates that the fork was
at 5.0.26, and that the enterprise version would have more releases.  So
that half-explains things.  But it's rather odd that the source releases
are hidden away on the FTP site.
