MySQL 4.1.7 for Debian Woody
Posted on: 11/19/2004 08:30 PM

DotDeb.org has released MySQL 4.1.7 and updated PHP 5.0.2 packages for Debian GNU/Linux 3.0

MySQL 4.1.7 has been released a couple of week ago.

I just packaged it and uploaded it on Dotdeb.org. Before upgrading, please take a look at :
- the new features and changes introduced with MySQL 4.1 :
http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/4.1/index.html
- the new password policy :
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Password_hashing.html

The packaging system of the 4.1 branch doesn't differ with the 4.0 branch. Just notice that they now include the ndb clustering technology.

With the important update of MySQL to the 4.1 branch, I decided to update the PHP 5.0.2 packages. Here are the changes :
- mbstring support is back
- MySQLi (support for MySQL >=4.1) added as php5-mysqli
- Turck MMCache removed because of too many problems (crashes, unexpected behaviour).

Here the source for /etc/apt/sources.list:
