MySQL 5.0.0 has been released

MySQL 5.0.0, a new version of the popular Open Source/Free Software Database Management System, has been released. It is now available in source and
binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages at and mirror sites.

Do to an unfortunate build error in the last minute we can't provide -max binaries for 5.0.0 at this time. Sorry about that.

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 5.0 tree, adding many new features (see below). As this code is currently labeled "Alpha", we do
not recommend that this version be used in production environments yet! It does however pass our test suite on all our build platforms and all old
features should be resonable stable.
