MySQL | MySQL 5.0 production release

MySQL 5.0 is finally ready for the big time with the release of the first general availabilty version 5.0.15 following a long period of testing.

The addition of many new features such as stored procedures, triggers, views and cursors has finally brought MySQL onto the same playing field as other RDBMS products, both proprietary and open source, and puts it in a position to expand into the "enterprise" database market.

It is also a good reason to finally get around to updating (and hopefully reducing) the MySQL Gotchas - watch that space.
