MySQL 5.0.11-beta released.

A new version of MySQL Community Edition 5.0.11-beta Open Source database management system has been released. This version now includes support for Stored Procedures, Triggers, Views and many other features. It 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.

Note that not all mirror sites may be up-to-date at this point. If you cannot find this version on a particular mirror, please try again later or choose another download site.

This is the seventh Beta release in the 5.0 series. All attention will continue to be focused on fixing bugs and stabilizing 5.0 for later production release.

NOTE: This Beta release, as any other pre-production release, should not be installed on ``production'' level systems or systems with critical data. It is good practice to back up your data before installing any new version of software. Although MySQL has done its best to ensure a high level of quality, protect your data by making a backup as you would for any software beta release.

Please refer to the bug database at http://bugs.mysql.com/ for more details about the individual open and resolved bugs in this version.

Changes in release 5.0.11:

Functionality added or changed:

  • Security improvement: Applied a patch that addresses a potential zlib data vulnerability that could result in an application crash. This only affects the binaries for platforms that are linked statically against the bundled zlib (most notably Microsoft Windows and HP-UX).
  • mysqldump now dumps triggers for each dumped table. This can be suppressed with the --skip-triggers option.
  • Added support of where clause for queries with FROM DUAL.
  • Added an optimization that avoids key access with NULL keys for the ref method when used in outer joins.
  • Maximum size of stored procedures increased from 64k to 4Gb.

And many more...
