MySQL Connector/ODBC is our next generation ODBC driver which allows

ODBC standard is a; cross-platform, cross-database, C language, Call 
Level Interface.

This version is being released to get community feedback but is NOT 
suitable for production environments.

It is now available in binary form from the Connector/ODBC download 
pages at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/5.0.html and 
mirror sites.

Note: Not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point of time. If 
you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or 
choose another download site.
