MySQL WIN32 Binaries Issue Update

With the new release of MySQL v5.0.33, I now see the updated source package for Windows on the actual download page again. Though the public FTP only lists v5.0.32 and its been a week.

There also seems to be lots of confusion and double-speak going around. Particularly MySQL claiming that this is all just a big misunderstanding, and they really do intend to provide win32 MySQL Community Server binaries… Just not until v5.0.35, or something, is released.

MySQL 5.0.33 Community Server released

Too bad MySQL v5.0+ releases will not build with VC++ 6.0 out of the box. I suppose I might have to start using VS.NET 7.1 Express for some builds.
