MySQL 5.0.15 shortcomings

I got really excited when, earlier this week MySQL released version 5.0 as their new flag ship database product. After seemingly decades of being in beta phase. Its arrived!

I tested their beta version on windows a few months ago, and encountered two prominent glitches...


1. An instability when using "DESC tablename", causing the thing to shut down.
2. Variables cant be used as parameters to the LIMIT condition on SELECT statements

... and so i was indeed half disappointed when i found out in this release they haven't made good the latter feature. :(

Anyway, thats on my the windows server, i've yet to test it on linux.

brb -. with a tutorial upgrading mysql 4.1 to 5.0 on Fedora Core 4
