Database Management System has been released. It is now available in
source and binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages

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 first 4.1 production release.

Please refer to our bugs database at http://bugs.mysql.com/ for more
details about the individual bugs fixed in this version.

News from the ChangeLog:

Changes in release 4.1.7

   Functionality added or changed:
     * InnoDB: Made LOCK TABLES behave by default like it did before
       MySQL 4.0.20 or 4.1.2: no InnoDB lock will be taken. Added a
       startup option and settable system variable innodb_table_locks for
       making LOCK TABLE acquire also InnoDB locks. See section
       "Restrictions on InnoDB Tables" in the manual.
       (Bug #3299, Bug #5998)

   Bugs fixed:
     * Fixed a bug with FOUND_ROWS() used together with LIMIT clause in
       prepared statements. (Bug #6088)
     * Fixed a bug with NATURAL JOIN in prepared statements. (Bug #6046).
     * Fixed a bug in join of tables from different databases having
       columns with identical names (prepared statements). (Bug #6050)
     * Now implicit access to system time zone description tables (which
       happens when you set time_zone variable or use CONVERT_TZ()
       function) does not require any privileges. (Bug #6116)
     * Fixed a bug which caused the server to crash when the deprecated
       libmysqlclient function mysql_create_db() was called. (Bug #6081)
     * Fixed REVOKE ALL PRIVILEGES, GRANT OPTION FROM user so that all
       privileges are revoked correctly. (Bug #5831). This corrects a
       case that the fix in 4.1.6 could miss.
     * Fixed a bug that could cause MyISAM index corruption when key
       values start with character codes below BLANK. This was caused by
       the new key sort order in 4.1. (Bug #6151)
     * Fixed a bug in the prepared statements protocol when wrong
       metadata was sent for SELECT statements not returning a result set
       (such as SELECT ... INTO OUTFILE). (Bug #6059)
     * Fixed bug which allowed one to circumvent missing UPDATE privilege
       if one had INSERT and SELECT privileges for table with primary key.
       (Bug #6173)
     * Fixed a bug in libmysqlclient with wrong conversion of negative
       time values to strings. (Bug #6049).
     * Fixed a bug in libmysqlclient with wrong conversion of zero date
       values (0000-00-00) to strings. (Bug #6058)
     * Fixed a bug that caused the server to crash on attempt to prepare
       a statement with RAND(?). (Bug #5985)
     * Fixed a bug with handling of DATE, TIME, and DATETIME columns in
       the binary protocol. The problem is compiler-specific and could
       have been observed on HP-UX, AIX, Solaris9, when compiling with
       native compiler. (Bug #6025)
     * Fixed a bug with handling of TINYINT columns in the binary
       protocol. The problem is specific to platforms where the C
       compiler has the char data type unsigned by default. (Bug #6024)
     * Fixed problem introduced in MySQL 4.0.21 where a connection
       starting a transaction, doing updates, then FLUSH TABLES WITH READ
       LOCK, then COMMIT, would cause replication slaves to stop
       complaining about error 1223. Bug surfaced when using the InnoDB
       innobackup script. (Bug #5949)

Enjoy!

   Matt
