How come there is not a source download for 4.0.11??? The source
download is still 4.0.10! Did some one miss the source tar ball?

> MySQL 4.0.11, a new version of the popular Open Source Database, has
> released. It is now available in source and binary form for a number
> platforms from our download pages at http://www.mysql.com/downloads/
> mirror sites.
> Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point of
> if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again
> choose another download site.
> This is a new beta development release, adding new features and
> recently discovered bugs.
> Functionality added or changed:
> * Fixed problem with `multi-table-delete' and InnoDB tables.
> * Fixed a problem with `BLOB NOT NULL' columns used with `IS NULL'.
> * `NULL' is now sorted *LAST* if you use `ORDER BY ... DESC' (as it
> was before before MySQL 4.0.2). This is change was required to
> follow ANSI SQL 99. (The original change was because we thought
> that ANSI SQL 99 required NULL to be always sorted at the same
> position, but this was wrong).
> * Added `START TRANSACTION' (ANSI SQL99 syntax) as alias for
> This is recommended to use instead of `BEGIN' to start a
> * Added `OLD_PASSWORD()' as a synonym for `PASSWORD()'.
> * Allow keyword `ALL' in group functions.
> * Added support for some new `INNER JOIN' and `JOIN' syntaxes. For
> example, `SELECT * FROM t1 INNER JOIN t2' didn't work before.
> Bugs fixed:
> * Re-added missing pre- and post(un)install scripts to the Linux
> packages (they were missing after the renaming of the server
> * Fixed that table locks are not released with multi-table updates
> and deletes with InnoDB storage engine.
> * Fixed bug in updating BLOB columns with long strings.
> * Fixed integer-wraparound when giving big integer (>= 10 digits)
> function that requires an unsigned argument, like `CREATE TABLE
> (...) AUTO_INCREMENT=#'.
> * `MIN(key_column)' could in some cases return `NULL' on a column
> with `NULL' and other values.
> * `MIN(key_column)' and `MAX(key_column)' could in some cases
> wrong values when used in `OUTER JOIN'.
> * `MIN(key_column)' and `MAX(key_column)' could return wrong values
> if one of the tables was empty.
> * Fixed rare crash in compressed MyISAM tables with blobs.
> * Fixed bug in using aggregate functions as argument for
> `CASE', `FIELD', `CONCAT_WS', `ELT' and `MAKE_SET' functions.
> * When running with `--lower-case-table-names' (default on windows)
> and you had tables or databases with mixed case on disk, then
> executing `SHOW TABLE STATUS' followed with `DROP DATABASE' or
> `DROP TABLE' could fail with `Errcode 13'.
> Additional notes:
> * In addition to the binary tarballs, we now do offer native
> Mac OS X PKG packages for Mac OS X 10.2 "Jaguar". Please see
> http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Mac_OS_X_installation.html for more
> * There are now two different binaries for HP-UX 11 - one for
> 64bit platforms and one that has been compiled to to be
> older PA-RISC 1.1 32bit platforms:
> mysql-<version>-hp-hpux11.11-hppa2.0w-64bit.tar.gz (64bit PA-RISC
> mysql-<version>-hp-hpux11.11-hppa2.0w.tar.gz (32bit PA-RISC 1.1)
> * Please note that the "bigint" test in 4.0.11 fails on some 64bit
> Platforms like HP-UX 11 or Tru64. This is because of an error in
> particular test of the test suite which has already been fixed in
> source tree for future releases.
> * To fix a compilation bug on HP-UX 10.20, we had to add an
> patch to the 4.0.11 sources used to build these binaries.
> the Unix source tarball as well as the HP-UX 10.20 binaries will
> labelled 4.0.11a instead of 4.0.11. The other binaries are not
> by this change. This modification has already been added to the
> source tree and will be part of future releases.
