MySQL 5.0 Alpha Released!



MySQL AB announced today the availability of MySQL 5.0:

MySQL AB, developer of the world’s most popular open source database, today announced that a major new version of its database software, version 5.0, is now available. The new release includes the addition of stored procedures as well as other advances designed to enhance the development of large-scale enterprise database applications. The MySQL 5.0 alpha development release is now available for testing and evaluation by the open source community.

That’s pretty impressive, as it seems like just yesterday that the MySQL 4.0 alpha came out…

Check out the major new features in 5.0, read the changelog, and download it from your favorite mirror.  I usually grab mine from Jeremy‘s servers.
