14 Changes in MySQL 5.6.10 (2013-02-05, General Availability)

Beginning with MySQL 5.6.10, MySQL Enterprise Edition is available for MySQL 5.6. Specifically, MySQL Enterprise 5.6.10 includes these components previously available only in MySQL 5.5: MySQL Enterprise Security (PAM and Windows authentication plugins), MySQL Enterprise Audit, and MySQL Thread Pool. For information about these features, see MySQL Enterprise Edition. To learn more about commercial products, see http://www.mysql.com/products/.

Known limitations of this release:

On Microsoft Windows, when using the MySQL Installer to install MySQL Server 5.6.10 on a host with an existing MySQL Server of a different version (such as 5.5.30), that also has a different license (community versus commercial), you must first update the license type of the existing MySQL Server. Otherwise, MySQL Installer will remove MySQL Server(s) with different licenses from the one you chose with MySQL Server 5.6.10.

On Microsoft Windows 8, updating a community release to a commercial release requires you to manually restart the MySQL service after the update.
