MySQLdb-1.2.1 has finally been released after more than a year of on-again, off-again development. This also coincides with the migration of the source repository to Subversion. I had intended to do this after 1.2.1, but an untimely outage of the SourceForge CVS servers accelerated the process.

I intend for this to be the final release of the 1.2 series barring any serious bugs.

For more details on the roadmap, see:

mysql-python is now over 250,000 downloads and MySQLdb is a package in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora Core, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, (Solaris packages), a couple BSDs, and probably a few more I don't know about. It's also used by projects like Django, Turbogears, Dabo, Zenoss, ViewCVS, Zope, and others.

While it's been five years at SourceForge, the original project is now seven years old; I realized this when migrating the CVS repository. I feel like I need a cake or something.
