When percona server 5.7 ready-to-use packages becomes available to downloading under Ubuntu from percona repositories?
Hi there. I have been anxiously awaiting the MySQL 5.7 release, and have been annoying people at my work about how important a release it will be. We especially have use cases where multi-source replication is critical to our workflow (and right now, we’ve hacked together a wrapper around the Percona Toolkit’s pt-table-sync to band-aid us until we can fully transition those environments to MySQL 5.7 – though we don’t necessarily like this particular situation).
I imagine that once the community MySQL 5.7 is available in GA, we’ll see some betas from Percona.
I don’t see a branch on Percona’s github for 5.7 yet, so hopefully they’re working on it. I’ve been asking on twitter for the last few weeks, but no one has answered.
Any news on the subject?
After doing some digging I can see mention of it on here: https://launchpad.net/percona-server/5.7, it says expected 2015-11-30, but I don’t think that date is concrete.

Percona Server 5.7 GA is in progress… not ready yet, but not too far off either.
