End of Product Lifecycle. Active development for MySQL Database Server version 5.0 has ended. Oracle offers various support offerings which may be of interest. For details and more information, see the MySQL section of the Lifetime Support Policy for Oracle Technology Products (http://www.oracle.com/us/support/lifetime-support/index.html). Please consider upgrading to a recent version.
For additional MySQL 5.0 documentation, see the MySQL 5.0 Reference Manual, which includes an overview of features added in MySQL 5.0 (What Is New in MySQL 5.0), and discussion of upgrade issues that you may encounter for upgrades from MySQL 4.1 to MySQL 5.0 (Upgrading from MySQL 4.1 to 5.0).
Releases in MySQL Enterprise Server are divided into the following types of release packs:
Rapid Update Service Packs are issued once a month and incorporate all the bug fixes and security updates introduced since the previous MySQL Enterprise Server release. A single Service Pack can be used to update MySQL Enterprise Server; it is not necessary to install intervening service packs to bring your system up to date.
Quarterly Service Packs are issued each quarter and incorporate all the bug fixes and security updates introduced up to the Rapid Update that the QSP it is based on, and possibly some critical bug fixes and security updates from later releases. A single Service Pack can be used to update MySQL Enterprise Server; it is not necessary to install intervening service packs to bring your system up to date.
Hot-fix releases incorporate fixes for bugs that caused significant issues that are not released as part of a Service Pack.
