With the addition of MySQL Shell earlier this week and MySQL Router in November last year, SlackPack 14.2 repositories now offer the whole range of current MySQL community software, inclduing:

This continues the tradition of SlackPack for offering the latest community software from MySQL no matter who owns the company. For older versions of Slackware SlackPack offers all of the above, except the two mentioned in the top paragraph, because they become available only later. Packages for some now deprecated and desupported software (such as MySQL Administrator, MySQL Control Center, MySQL GUI Tools and MySQL Query Browser) are still available although their usage is strongly disadvised as these are very old, not guranteed to work and were already replaced completely by MySQL Workbench.

All of the software listed above comes under the terms of GNU GPL license, version 2, so use it based on yor personal understanding and preferences for free software and software usability in general.
