Based on MySQL 5.6.37, and including all the bug fixes in it, Percona Server for MySQL 5.6.37-82.2 is now the current GA release in the Percona Server for MySQL 5.6 series. Percona Server for MySQL is open-source and free – this is the latest release of our enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL. Complete details of this release are available in the 5.6.37-82.2 milestone on Launchpad.
NOTE: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (including CentOS 5 and other derivatives), Ubuntu 12.04 and older versions are no longer supported by Percona software. The reason for this is that these platforms reached end of life, will not receive updates and are not recommended for use in production.
