Free MySQL Binaries No Longer Available?

The MySQL Performance Blog is posting about where you can download/build recent binaries of MySQL as it looks like they are no longer offering recent downloads. I’d have to say there is definitely evidence of this being true– I’m running 5.0.30-1 on my server this site is hosted on, yet the newest version available for download at the MySQL site is 5.0.27.

I’ve always been weary of the MySQL licensing scheme and have used PostgreSQL instead when possible, and if true this would be yet another reason I will continue to choose PostgreSQL over MySQL.
