View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL AB announces an updated release of the "MySQL Connector/PHP for
MySQL and PHP", the Windows downloads for connecting MySQL to PHP, with
MySQL 5.0.24a and a new PHP 5.1.6.

The MySQL Connector/PHP consists of the mysql/mysqli PHP extensions
built against the latest version of the MySQL client libraries for
Microsoft Windows.

The advantages on top of the mysql/mysqli PHP extensions currently
available from are that they contain the latest bug fixes to the
MySQL Client Library, and make all the features in the MySQL server
versions 4.1.21 and 5.0.24a available.

They are now available in binary format from the MySQL Connector/PHP
download page at and
mirror sites (note that not all the mirror sites may be up to date at
this point in time - if you cannot find this version on a mirror, please
try again later or choose another mirror site).

This binary release contains the mysql/mysqli extensions for PHP 5.1.6,
with support for MySQL server versions 4.1.21 and 5.0.24a. Note that only
the mysqli extension for PHP 5.0, but not the older mysql extension,
supports the full functionality of MySQL versions greater than 4.1.x,
such as Stored Procedures, Triggers, Views, and much more.

Kind regards,
