    MySQL Server Maintenance Releases
    Employee_Team +6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    After a version of MySQL Server has been declared GA, Oracle releases regular maintenance updates: the 5.6 GA was 5.6.10 and we are now at 5.6.17.

    A lot of work goes into the maintenance releases. The purpose of this blog post is to show you a little bit of what happens on behind the curtains in the Oracle sweatshop that actually produces a maintenance release and to give you an insight into our thinking around testing, quality and bug fixing.

    What goes into a maintenance release?

    Milestone Release model
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    The description of the Milestone Release model has been available at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-development-cycle/en for almost two years. So, this is not new but it has now been in operation for 3.5 years and it can be worth looking back and summarize.

    Our first MySQL Server Milestone 5.4.3 was released on October 9th, 2009 and was then followed up by 5.5.2 on Feb. 26, 2010. Initially there was a time of trying out and fine tuning the model before it found its current form around 5.5 GA. The stabilized model has been followed consistently throughout the 5.6 development cycle.   Our latest milestone release (5.7.1) was released on April 22 and was covered in Tomas’ keynote on Percona Live, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpHTV59I1gs. In total we have now
