I know version 5.1.x has been released but there is still much debate on wether this is safe enough to use in a production environment. I haven’t fully tested it yet in all the different environments and setups I would like to (mostly due to time constraints) before I commit to this new release.

This (5.0.75) is the version that comes after 5.0.67. This is a bug and security fix release and it is available in source format only. Because this is a security fix I would urge you all to upgrade your MySQL server installation.

Check all the fixes that are listed on the release notes to see what issues are resolved.

I’ve compiled this version and did some simple tests on Leopard and Tiger and both can be compiled and installed using the instructions in the documentation set without problems
