Oracle has announced the availability of MySQL 5.6.10 as a GA (General Availability), a status which declares that this release is intended for public consumption and safe to be used for production machines.
Today, i tried to compile MySQL 5.6.10 using Slackware's SlackBuild script, but then i got a lot of failures during compilation. Searching for bug reports in MySQL's bug tracker doesn't really help as the patches that were posted were no help in my case.
I think i will have to wait for the next release to come out to fix most of the problems with the current version. It seems that GA is not always buildable at the first attempt :)
