MySQL 4.0 is here!

Posted on 26 October 2001 by Demian Turner

The long awaited version 4.0 of the MySQL database is now available for download at the MySQL website. The new version is intended as a platform for building mission critical, heavy load database solutions, and much effort has been put into providing a solid foundation for planned enhancements, some of which are included from the start.

This is the text as it appears on the homepage of the MySQL site. If you go a bit further into the article you’ll find the really exciting stuff is expected to appear in 4.1:

  • nested subqueries
  • stored procedures
  • foreign key integrity

    I wouldn\’t use anything but a stable version to keep my data, would you like to keep your files in an alpha version filesystem?

    well 4.03 is coming out soon with some impressive features, I guess that means 4.0 must be getting nearer to stable.
