MySQL Server 5.1 is available on the following new platforms starting with the 5.1.42 release:
Mac OS X 10.6 x86/x64
HP-UX 11.31 IA64
SLES 11 x86/x64
InnoDB Plugin Notes
InnoDB Plugin has been upgraded to version
1.0.6. This version is considered of Release Candidate (RC)
quality. InnoDB Storage Engine Change History, may contain
information in addition to those changes reported here.
In this release, the
InnoDB Plugin is
included in source and binary distributions, except RHEL3,
RHEL4, SuSE 9 (x86, x86_64, ia64), and generic Linux RPM
packages. It also does not work for FreeBSD 6 and HP-UX or for
Linux on S/390, PowerPC, and generic ia64.
When the query cache is fragmented, the size of the free block
lists in the memory bins grows, which causes query cache
invalidation to become slow. There is now a 50ms timeout for a
SELECT statement waiting for the
query cache lock. If the timeout expires, the statement executes
without using the query cache.

Important Change; Replication: The following functions have been marked unsafe for statement-based replication:
None of the functions just listed are guaranteed to replicate
correctly when using the statement-based format because they can
produce different results on the master and the slave. The use
of any of these functions while
binlog_format is set to
STATEMENT is logged with the warning,
Statement is not safe to log in statement
binlog_format is set to
MIXED, the binary logging format is
automatically switched to the row-based format whenever one of
these functions is used.
After a binary upgrade to MySQL 5.1 from a MySQL 5.0
installation that contains
In either case, the solution is to use
mysqldump to dump all 5.0
ARCHIVE tables before upgrading,
and reload them into MySQL 5.1 after upgrading. The same problem
occurs for binary downgrades from MySQL 5.1 to 5.0.
Partitioning: In some cases, it was not possible to add a new column to a table that had subpartitions. (Bug #48276)
COUNT(*) from a partitioned table failed when using

SUBPARTITION BY KEY failed with

TABLE was written to the binary log even if the
affected table was temporary, causing replication to fail.
When using row-based format, replication failed with the error
Could not execute Write_rows event on table ...;
Field '...' doesn't have a default value when an
INSERT was made on the master
without specifying a value for a column having no default, even
if strict server SQL mode was not in use and the statement would
otherwise have succeeded on the master. Now the SQL mode is
checked, and the statement is replicated unless strict mode is
in effect. For more information, see Server SQL Modes.

With row-based binary logging, the server crashed for statements
of the form
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS
occurred because the server handled the existing view as a table
when logging the statement.

command failed to load the
