The phpMyAdmin development team is pleased to announce
the availability of the first release candidate for phpMyAdmin 2.5.6.

MySQL 4.1 / 5.0 Note:

     phpMyAdmin's support for MySQL 4.1 / 5.0 is still experimental


     * Display database collation
     * List collations of all tables
     * Pretty printing of charsets
     * Can now change the default database charset
     * Export now includes charset and collation info
     * Foreign key browse window: better sorting for key/value pairs; window is now resizable
     * Support for _charset syntax
     * Display the maximum size of uploads
     * Show MySQL version in SQL printview headers


     * Security fix: possible attack against export.php
     * Column collations were not displayed in MySQL 5.0
     * Character set "binary" was not correctly detected
     * Foreign key browse window: paging did not work
     * SHOW FIELDS problem
     * Changing a table's charset changed the charset of all fields (MYSQL >= 4.1.1)
     * Problem when SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS is in the query
     * Internal relations dropped when a field is dropped with the multi-submit mechanism
     * Wrong sort link for column aliases
     * Wrong row highlighting after "With selected: delete"
     * MySQL version check was sometimes done before connecting
