Great to have MySQL 5.6 in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Kudos to the MySQL team at Oracle for engaging openly and in a friendly way, earning the trust of Ubuntu collaborators and giving us the confidence to ship stable point releases in Ubuntu by default.

It's very potent when we are able to give an upstream the ability to deliver their best bits directly to Ubuntu users using the awesome immediacy of the packaging system - we can only do that when we have established a shared set of values, and this is a great example.

Would love to see more vendors using this approach to express their software directly to users!
Great news about mysql options in Debian and Ubuntu 14.04!
