Subject:MySQL 4.0.26 has been released
View as plain text  
Hi,

MySQL 4.0.26, a new version of the popular Open Source/Free Software
Database Management System, has been released. 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 in time -
if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or
choose another download site.

This is a bugfix release for the recent production version.

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

News from the ChangeLog:

Functionality added or changed:
* Added the mysql_get_client_version C API function to the embedded
   server library. (It was present in the regular client library but
   inadvertently omitted from the embedded library.)
   (Bug #10266 (http://bugs.mysql.com/10266))

Bugs fixed:
* An optimizer estimate of zero rows for a non-empty InnoDB table used
   in a left or right join could cause incomplete rollback for the table.
   (Bug  #12779 (http://bugs.mysql.com/12779))
* Query cache is switched off if a thread (connection) has tables
   locked. This prevents invalid results where the locking thread inserts
   values between a second thread connecting and selecting from the
   table. (Bug  #12385 (http://bugs.mysql.com/12385))
* For PKG installs on Mac OS X, the preinstallation and postinstallation
   scripts were being run only for new installations and not for upgrade
   installations, resulting in an incomplete installation process.
   (Bug #11380 (http://bugs.mysql.com/11380))
* On Windows, applications that used the embedded server made it not
   possible to remove certain files in the data directory, even after the
   embedded  server  had been shut down. This occurred because a file
   descriptor was being held open.
   (Bug #12177 (http://bugs.mysql.com/12177))
* Creation of the mysql group account failed during the RPM
   installation.  (Bug #12348 (http://bugs.mysql.com/12348))
* Attempting  to  repair a table having a fulltext index on a column
   containing  words  whose  length  exceeded 21 characters and where
   myisam_repair_threads was greater than 1 would crash the server. (Bug
   #11684 (http://bugs.mysql.com/11684))
* When two threads compete for the same table, a deadlock could occur if
   one thread has also a lock on another table through LOCK TABLES and
   the thread is attempting to remove the table in some manner and the
   other thread want locks on both tables.
   (Bug #10600 (http://bugs.mysql.com/10600))


Bye,
Joerg
