Stewart over at Percona noticed that our trees on Launchpad were out of date, and this has been picked up and taken as gospel by others, notably Henrik today.
Unfortunately, Henrik doesn’t seem to have checked Launchpad before publishing his blog – otherwise he would have noticed that all of the trees are currently up to date with the current releases.
He would also have noticed that there is now a new MySQL 5.6 branch, so that we can continue with trunk as the future MySQL version after MySQL 5.6.
So let me repeat this again, Oracle has not stopped updating the MySQL branches on Launchpad.
Sorry about the blips in updating, however.
