"a" doesn't mean "alpha".
It's a bugfix release for 4.1.4 - we didn't call it 4.1.5 because only
source distribution is affected (some complilation issues after we
upgraded libedit library, that is used for mysql command line client),
all gpl binaries are linked with readline and are not affected by this
problem. That's why there're no 4.1.4a binaries, only 4.1.4a source
tarball.

Yes.

No.
