+phpMyAdmin 2.2.0 - 30. August 2001
+==================================
+
+ A set of PHP-scripts to administrate MySQL over the WWW.
+ -----------------------------------------
+ http://phpwizard.net/projects/phpMyAdmin/
+ http://phpmyadmin.sourceforge.net/
+
+
+Announcement
+------------
+
+ After 5 months, 5 beta releases and 4 release candidate versions,
+ the phpMyAdmin developers are pleased to announce the availability
+ of phpMyAdmin 2.2.0.
+
+ phpMyAdmin is intended to handle the administration of MySQL over
+ the Web. The project was started by Tobias Ratschiller in 1998,
+ and is now one of the most popular PHP script used worldwide.
+
+ (Un)fortunately, Tobias then stopped to work on phpMyAdmin last
+ year: the last version (2.1.0) was released on 6. August 2000. In
+ the mean time, there were many suggestions and good ideas around,
+ as well as a security advisory.
+
+ That is why on 31st March 2001, Olivier M�ller (Switzerland),
+ supported by Marc Delisle (Qu�bec), Lo�c Chapeaux (France) and a
+ team of 8 other developers re-started the phpmyadmin project on
+ SourceForge.net, with the authorization of the original package
+ maintainer. And now, after 5 months of patches, bugfixes, new
+ features and testing, the version 2.2.0 is finally ready.
+
+ Available at http://phpmyadmin.sourceforge.net, it includes the
+ following highlights:
+
+
+Highlights
+----------
+
+ * Security fixes
+ * New languages: Thai, Swedish, Galician, Romanian, Slovak,
+ Japanese, Korean
+ * Dynamic multiple language support, with automatic browser
+ language detection
+ * Improved documentation
+ * Better file import/export possibilities
+ * PEAR, CSS2 and XHTML 1.0 compliant (as far as possible)

+ * Better BLOB support
+ * Table usage and row statistics

+
+ Detailed list of changes since version 2.1 is available under
+ http://phpmyadmin.sourceforge.net/ChangeLog.txt
+
+

+
+ http://www.phpwizard.net/phorum/list.php?f=1
+
+
+Known bugs
+----------
+
+ There are still a few annoying but hard to fix bugs:
+
+ * some browsers (IE5.0, Mozilla 0.8+) doesn't like to play with
+ binary data
+ * importing csv data may fail under very perticular circumstances
+ * aliases in sql queries aren't yet well handled
+ * out of memory error, when trying to create a table with more
+ than 14 fields (check the FAQ)
+
+ To be informed about new releases fixing these problems, please
+ subscribe to the news mailing list under
+ http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/phpmyadmin-news
+ or regularly check the sourceforge bugs tracker.
