MySQL 4.1.0, a new version of the popular Open Source Database, has been released. It is now available in source and binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages at http://www.mysql.com/downloads/ and mirror sites.
Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point in time - if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose another download site.
This is the first Alpha development release of the 4.1 tree, adding many new features (see below). As this code is currently labelled "Alpha", we do not recommend that this version be used in production environments yet!
