Subject:MySQL native driver for PHP: mysqlnd-5.0.1-beta has been released
View as plain text  
Dear Developers,

we are proud to announce the beta version of the MySQL native driver for 
PHP: mysqlnd 5.0.1-beta. The software is available for download on:

The MySQL native driver for PHP is an additional, alternative way to 
connect from PHP 5 and PHP 6 to the MySQL Server 4.1 or newer. It is a 
replacement for libmysql, the MySQL Client Library. From now on you can 
use ext/mysqli either together with libmysql as you did in the past or 
with mysqlnd. The MySQL native driver for PHP can connect to MySQL 
Servers 4.1 or newer.

As stated before, we have no plans to remove libmysql support from 
ext/mysqli, which would break existing applications.


The 5.0.1-beta release covers the functionality of the libmysql beside 
some functions that are marked as experimental in the ext/mysqli 
documentation. The following additions have been implemented since the 
release of 5.0.0-alpha:

* Support for Prepared Statements

* Support for Unicode

* Support for PHP 5

* Performance statistics:

Please contribute to the development on the mailing list 
php@stripped and share your ideas. See for 
details how to subscribe to the list.
