    Hello sirs,

    I have a question regarding recent EA update, it says:

    My concern is this: 5.1.45 includes InnoDB Plugin 1.0.6, which is RC quality.

    While 5.1.46 includes InnoDB Plugin 1.0.7, which is GA quality.

    Why you've chosen 45 with RC over 46 (stable) release?

    Because 5.1.45 came out before 5.1.46? Why not ask the question of MySQL themselves. They are the ones who pushed out several 5.1 versions with a RC version of the InnoDB plugin.

    5.1.46 is currently in our beta testing phase by the way.

    Yes, but your last release wasn't 5.1.45, so it's not like you always update MySQL. Therefore, your answer is invalid.

    In other case, if you would update 5.1 after every their release, then yes, your answer would make sense, as that's what people expect next.

    Actually we do update after everyone of MySQL's releases. We don't update every single cPanel target at once though. The RPMs migrate:

    EDGE -> CURRENT -> RELEASE -> STABLE

    with approximately a 2 week interval between each stage. Once an RPM migration begins we generally do not halt it unless there are problems reported against the RPM. Sometimes other events do stall a migration which gives the appearance that an update is lagging.

    RPMs are usually pushed to EDGE within a week to 10 days of upstream performing their release ( depending upon what issues we encountering during the packaging stage ).

    While, I doubt cPanel will support this, you can always grab the version you want to use and install it via RPM if you don't agree with the version that is being installed:

    Index of /mysqlinstall/

    Just don't run /scripts/mysqlup as it will most likely revert back to the version that cPanel wants.
