MySQL RC5 has been released.

Without question, MySQL 5.0 is the most ambitious release to date for MySQL AB. Of course, everything we do at MySQL centers around our three priorities of Performance, Reliability, and Ease of Use. Version 5.0 of MySQL is certainly true to these company-wide imperatives.

Key new features of MySQL 5.0 come in three groups:

a) ANSI SQL standard features formerly unknown to MySQL
b) ANSI SQL standard compliance of existing MySQL features
c) New MySQL Storage Engines, Tools and Extensions

The new ANSI SQL features include:

* Views (both read-only and updatable views)
* Stored Procedures and Stored Functions, using the SQL:2003 syntax, which is also used by IBM's DB2
* Triggers (row-level)
* Server-side cursors (read-only, non-scrolling)

"If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominos
will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate."
