Enterprise Server releases will be created for the following packages from the MySQL 5.0 tree:
mysql-enterprise: Released under a
commercial license and includes the following storage engines:
mysql-enterprise-gpl: Same as
mysql-enterprise, but released under the
mysql-enterprise plus MySQL Cluster
mysql-classic: Released under a commercial
license, does not include
mysql-community: Same as
mysql-enterprise-gpl, but available for the
community, and released every 6 months.
To satisfy different user requirements, we provide several servers. mysqld is an optimized server that is a smaller, faster binary. mysqld-debug is compiled with debugging support but is otherwise configured identically to the nondebug server.
Each of these servers is compiled from the same source distribution, though with different configuration options. All native MySQL clients can connect to servers from either MySQL version.
