Support EOL for the following Platforms

versions that are obsolete, have reached end of life, or have little usage
pattern, we plan to discontinue building MySQL binaries (Community,
Enterprise, and Commercial) for the following platforms.

As of January 1, 2011, these platforms will no longer be supported for
MySQL versions 5.0 and higher.

of Regular Life Cycle" as of Oct 31, 2010 (see
* SUSE Enterprise Linux v9
According to SUSE, the SLES General Support End Date was July 2009
and for OpenSUSE (see
* OpenSUSE v 9
According to opensuse,org, OpenSUSE, SUSE Linux 9.3 has been
discontinued (see
* IBM AIX 5.3
Due to very low demand and according to IBM an April-2011 EOM (see
this distribution has been dropped.
* IBM i 5.4 and 6.1
Due to very low demand and according to IBM a 5.4 Jan-07-2011 EOM
these distributions have been dropped.
* Linux Generic RPM built with icc (Intel compiler)
Due to low demand the general Linux RPM distribution created with
the icc Intel compiler has been dropped.
Note: The gcc build is the preferred alternative.

Our platform support continues to evolve and we recently added following
platforms to our officially supported list.

* New - Fedora 12, x86 and x86_64
* New - FreeBSD 8, x86 and x86_64
* Stay tuned for additional platforms and packages

Old releases for the EOLed platforms listed above remain available for
download and we will continue to provide source code and limited support
for customers who wish to build MySQL 5.1 and higher on these platforms.
Please see the MySQL Support Policies for more information.

As always, thanks for your continued support of MySQL!
