It’s a weird feeling having to blog again about a MySQL update, but due to security issues MySQL has been updated. The current release is 5.0.21 and you can get it from I’ve thinking a lot on how to do this and even thought I could just skip it. I don’t want to bombard you with update after update and only blog when something significant happens. But as this is a security driven update concerning the client-server protocol I though it was serious enough to mention here.

I’ve updated the installation procedure again to reflect the version change.
