This appendix lists the changes from version to version in the MySQL source code through the latest version of MySQL 4.1.
End of Product Lifecycle. Active development and support for MySQL Database Server versions 3.23, 4.0, and 4.1 has ended. For details, see http://www.mysql.com/about/legal/lifecycle/#calendar. Please consider upgrading to a recent version. Further updates to the content of this manual will be minimal. All formats of this manual will continue to be available until 31 Dec 2010.
Note that we tend to update the manual at the same time we make changes to MySQL. If you find a recent version of MySQL listed here that you can't find on our download page (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/), it means that the version has not yet been released.
The date mentioned with a release version is the date of the last Bazaar commit on which the release was based, not the date when the packages were made available. The binaries are usually made available a few days after the date of the tagged ChangeSet, because building and testing all packages takes some time.
The manual included in the source and binary distributions may not be fully accurate when it comes to the release changelog entries, because the integration of the manual happens at build time. For the most up-to-date release changelog, please refer to the online version instead.
