Yesterday we announced the availability of MySQL Connector/Python v1.0.5 beta. Today I’ve made it available on PyPI so it can be easily installed. Note that I did remove the old development release and when you upgrade or try v1.0.5, you should check the ChangeLog.

shell> pip install mysql-connector-python

For those wondering why the name includes ‘python’: it’s just to align it with other MySQL connectors and to keep the name consistent with other distribution types.

We welcome and appreciate feedback and comments for this first beta release through the forum and the MySQL Bugs database.
