MySQL is Ready for Fedora 31

Fedora 31 is out today; another rev on one of the most popular community Linux distros out there. As usual, we support the latest Fedora from day one, and we have added the following MySQL products to our official MySQL yum repos:

  • MySQL Server (8.0.18 and 5.7.28)
  • Connector C++ 8.0.18
  • Connector Python 8.0.18
  • Connector ODBC 8.0.18
  • Connector Java 8.0.18
  • Router 8.0.18
  • Shell 8.0.18
  • Workbench 8.0.18

Please note that our 8.0 client side products (Router, Shell, Workbench, connectors) are designed to work with any older (non-EOL) version of MySQL Server. So all the 8.0.18 clients will work with MySQL Server 5.7.28.

Head over to to get the Fedora 31 repo setup package to enable the official MySQL repos on your system. Install the package with

sudo rpm -Uvh mysql80-community-release-fc31-1.noarch.rpm

… and off you go. For more detailed instructions, please refer to the Quick Guide to Using the MySQL Yum Repository.

As usual, if you have comments or suggestions, feel free to leave a comment below. If you should [gulp] experience issues with the repos or packages, please make sure to submit a problem report to the MySQL bug database.
