MySQL 4.1.0, a new version of the popular Open Source Database, has been released. It is now available in source and binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages at http://www.mysql.com/downloads/
and mirror sites.
Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point in time - if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose another download site.
