View as plain text  
Hi,
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?

Thanks,
Ken

>
>
> 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
`BEGIN'.
>    This is recommended to use instead of `BEGIN' to start a
>    transaction.
>
>  * 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
RPM
>    packages (they were missing after the renaming of the server
>    subpackage).
>
>  * 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)
to
>    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
return
>    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
`INTERVAL',
>    `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:

info.

PA-RISC 2.0
>    64bit platforms and one that has been compiled to to be
compatible with

2.0)
>    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

Therefore,

be
