InnoDB 1.1 for MySQL 5.5 User's Guide  /  Introduction to InnoDB 1.1  /  Obtaining and Installing the InnoDB Storage Engine

1.2. Obtaining and Installing the InnoDB Storage Engine

Starting with MySQL 5.4.2, you do not need to do anything special to get or install the most up-to-date InnoDB storage engine. From that version forward, the InnoDB storage engine in the server is what was formerly known as the InnoDB Plugin. Earlier versions of MySQL required some extra build and configuration steps to get the Plugin-specific features such as fast index creation and table compression.

Report any bugs in the InnoDB storage engine using the My Oracle Support site. For general discussions about InnoDB Storage Engine for MySQL, see http://forums.mysql.com/list.php?22.
