MaxScale 21.06 Contents


NOTE MaxScale 6.4 was renamed to 21.06 in May 2024. Thus, what would have been released as 6.4.16 in June, was released as 21.06.16. The purpose of this change is to make the versioning scheme used by all MaxScale series identical. 21.06 denotes the year and month when the first 6 release was made. Anything referring to MaxScale 6 applies to MaxScale 21.06.
