It is now thought that if no major flaws or bugs are found in the current release candidate then Mysql version 5 may be released as early as November 05.
The company is calling Version 5 its most significant upgrade yet. It adds a handful of features considered important for enterprises that have long been available from market leaders Oracle Corp., IBM and Microsoft Corp. Chief among them are triggers, views and stored procedures.
The new version of Mysql will remain GPL'd. Mysql will continue to offer support options for commercial customers.

This leads me to the following question:
How does one perform seamlessly an upgrade?
Do a dump and a full reload which does not make sense
for current operations are to be stopped.
Or the best way which should be?
Obviously I never yet perform a "Live" upgrade on a server
since I use mostly managed server.
but for experiment purposes I am considering fully dedicted server.
With the innoDB tables it hasn't worked as well to build new schemas or backup dbs.
