Waiting for 4.1
by Steven Haryanto on Wed 27th Oct 2004 01:02 UTC

I have been waiting eagerly for 4.1 to be stable. It's convenient to be able to write subqueries instead of always expressing a query with JOINs or breaking a query into several statements. Plus 4.1 does have many nice things like SHOW WARNINGS (so at least MySQL does not really _silent_ly truncating and converting stuffs behind our backs), GROUP_CONCAT(), some new data types (esp. spatial), etc.

I would still wait for several months though until 4.1 matures. I migrated from 3.23 to an early production-release of 4.0 and was having problems with MyISAM corruption. But now not anymore with recent 4.0.
