MySQL 5 for eComStation available

May 05, 2006 by admin

MySQL 5.0.21, a new version of the popular Open Source Database
Management System, has been released, and an OS/2 & eComStation
build is now available from

This is a bugfix release for the current production release family.

This MySQL 5.0.21 release includes the patches for recently reported
security vulnerabilites in the MySQL client-server protocol. We would
like to thank Stefano Di Paola for finding
and reporting these to us.

Changes in 5.0.21 are detailed at

Changes in 5.0.20a & 5.0.20 for which there wasn't a public OS/2 build are detailed at &

Release Notes:
1) DLL is now provided, significantly reducing the size of the client utilities
2) libs*, include* are now provided
3) built with libc06 CSD1 so libc061.dll is required - this can be downloaded from
4) this has currently had fairly limited testing - but it is running now on my server and being used successfully with my build of PHP 5.1.3
5) Command line history is now working correctly
6) All bug reports should be submitted via the bug tracker at

A *big* thanks to Yuri Dario who provided his patches for MySQL 4.1.7 which were the basis for this updated port. You can checkout (and support) Yuri's efforts via his website at

For new users of MySQL - an initial set of data tables as created via the mysql_install_db script is available from - this should be unzipped into the ./mysql5 directory. Additional details on securing the data tables can be found at

See the COPYING file included in the archive for details on the MySQL license.
