MySQL Connector/ODBC is our next generation ODBC driver which allows
access to the MySQL v5 server using the widely used ODBC standard. The
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.

Install Notes
--

1. Those using the MSI based installer can simply install by 'executing'
the MSI file. Any existing MSI install should automatically upgrade.

2. Those using the noinstaller distribution should unzip the
distribution file and follow instruction found therein.

3. Connector/ODBC v5 can coexist with any existing install of
Connector/ODBC v3.
