Chapter 3 Connector/Python Versions

The MySQL Connector/Python 2.0 is the current development series.

The MySQL Connector/Python 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 series each went through a series of beta releases, leading to generally available (GA) versions. Any development releases in each series prior to the GA version are no longer supported.

The following table summarizes the available Connector/Python versions:

MySQL server and Python versions within parentheses are known to work with Connector/Python, but are not officially supported. Bugs might not get fixed for those versions.


Connector/Python does not support the old MySQL Server authentication methods, which means that MySQL versions prior to 4.1 will not work.
