Note

Version numbers for MySQL products are formatted as X.Y.Z, where Z=0 indicates alpha, Z=1 indicates beta, and Z>=2 indicates GA. However, Windows tools (Control Panel, properties display) may show the version numbers as XX.YY.ZZ. For example, the official MySQL formatted version number 5.0.9 may be displayed by Windows tools as 5.00.09. The two versions are the same; only the number display format is different.
