MySQL 5.5.18 has been released by Oracle yesterday. The packages for Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” are now available on Dotdeb for both amd64 and i386 architectures.
As usual, please read the full Changelog carefully before upgrading.
Please also note that Oracle now provides .deb packages on their download page. That’s a great thing, but they’ll have to be improved :
- no repository is available to ease the future updates
- they’re monolythic and do not separate libraries from headers or binaries, configuration from server or client.
- they do not take care of the official Debian naming convention
