Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Server 5.0.96, a new version of the popular Open Source Database
Management System, has been released.  Please note that the active
maintenance of 5.0 has ended, and these builds are only provided
because of the fixes to security bugs as described below.

The release is now available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our archive download page at

Mirror service for MySQL Server 5.0 has ended.  Also, support for some
platforms with very low demand has ended.  Please bear in mind that
MySQL 5.0 now receives extended support only, and that all active
development is happening on MySQL 5.1, 5.5, and beyond. You will find
the MySQL Lifecycle policy here:

For your own best interest, we strongly recommend all current users of
MySQL 5.0 to upgrade to MySQL 5.1.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes,
patches etc:
