24/11/2006MySQL AB released MySQL Server 5.1.12 Beta
"MySQL 5.1.12 delivers several important improvements to ease the creation of Pluggable Storage Engines" says Paul McCullagh, the lead developer behind the Primebase XT Storage Engine for MySQL (PBXT), "we are very excited about this new public release." PBXT 0.9.27 is now in Beta Test and requires MySQL 5.1.12 (or later) and can be obtained from http://primebase.com/xt/
Bear in mind that this is a beta release, and as any other pre-production release, it should not be installed for production level systems or systems with critical data. For production level systems, pay attention to the product description of MySQL Enterprise at: http://mysql.com/products/enterprise/
The MySQL 5.1.12 Beta release is now available in source and binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages at: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/ and mirror sites.
Be it that this is a Beta release, there are several incompatible changes that have happened since last release, and there's a tremendous amount of bug fixes--way too many to mention here (more than 500). We're providing a detailed list at: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-12.html and for your convienience also an excerpt of the ones where functionality have been added or changed.
