Subject:MySQL 4.0.20 For Windows released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users and developers,

MySQL 4.0.20 is now available for windows in both source and binary 
form from our
download pages at 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.

When MySQL 4.0.20 was originally released, we didn't release the 
Windows build in a
scheduled manner due to some issues that mainly concerned the Embedded 
support, and we apologize if this caused you any inconveniences.

Please refer to our bug database at for more
details about the individual bugs fixed in this version.

News from the ChangeLog (below)

Changes in release 4.0.20a (windows)

Functionality added or changed:

    Bugs fixed:
    Fixed crash in MATCH ... AGAINST() on a phrase search operator with 
a missing closing double quote. (Bug #3870)
      * Fixed a bug with truncation of big values (> 4294967295) of 
64-bit system variables. (Bug #3754)
      * If server-id was not set using startup options but with SET 
GLOBAL, the replication slave still complained that it was not set. 

    Functionality added or changed:
      * Phrase search in MATCH ... AGAINST ( ... IN BOOLEAN MODE) no 
longer matches partial words.

    Bugs fixed:
      * Fixed a bug in division / reporting incorrect metadata (number 
of digits after the decimal point). It can be seen, e.g. in CREATE 
        SELECT "0.01"/"3". (Bug #3612)
      * Fixed a problem with non-working DROP DATABASE on some 
configurations (in particular, Linux 2.6.5 with ext3 are known to 
expose this bug).
        (Bug #3594)
      * Fixed that in some replication error messages, a very long query 
caused the rest of the message to be invisible (truncated), by putting
        the query last in the message. (Bug #3357)

Thank you very much for your interest and use of MySQL!

kind regards,

Patrick Galbraith Senior Software Developer
