"We're continuing to add a lot of the enterprise capabilities that people are looking for, like sub-queries and prepared statements," said Zack Urlocker, the company's marketing VP. "We continue to improve the performance and make it easier to use with every single release."

Analysts, however, said the company still has work to do. "I am not a fan to date of this release," said Gartner analyst Donald Feinberg. "It is not enterprise-ready until features such as (stored procedures and triggers) are there." Those capabilities, plus a views feature, are to be added in release 5.0 of MySQL, targeted for shipment early next year. It had been initially set for release late in 2004. "Version 5.0 is what needs to come out. Not sure why this came along now," Feinberg said.
