Ah! I gave you the wrong URL! I am very sorry.
The latest is at:
bzr branch https://code.launchpad.net/~mysql/mysql-server/mysql-next-mr

No, 5.1 is the stable release which customers and most users use. We do
no new feature development on it, only bugfixes.
5.5 is where new features are being developed.
6.0 used to be where new features were developed, but since months the
focus of most of our developers is now on 5.5. 6.0 has some features
inside which are not ready yet.

Launchpad is quite open on the Internet; if the College has
restrictions, I have no idea.

They have passed more quality assurance tests than what is on launchpad.
On launchpad you find the latest, with code changes several times a day,
it may even not compile on a certain platform for a few hours (until we
notice it and fix it).

There are lots of things. I tried Netbeans and Anjuta a month ago, but
went back to Emacs, and the command line for running bzr commands. It
all depends on the developer. Some use the vi editor, some use Microsoft
Visual Studio, etc etc.
