"From the MySQL download site [http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/], you can download source and binary versions of an upgraded version of InnoDB..."

"The InnoDB Plugin is available at the MySQL download site [http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/]"

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/ does not have a direct link to InnoDB download.

How to repeat:
... Possibly others ...

Suggested fix:
This is only applicable for earlier version of MySQL. 

"The InnoDB Plugin is included in the MySQL distribution, starting from MySQL 5.1.38. From MySQL 5.1.46 and up, this is the only download location for the InnoDB Plugin; it is not available from the InnoDB web site."

Clarified these references to talk about the Plugin as part of the MySQL Server rather than a separate download.
