Thanks for the tip, and yes Al, I looked through the MYSQL site yesterday and was amazed to see how many releases there typically are.
Nicolas, a search might have picked it up, but as often as not there is so much going on here that sorting wheat from chaff is a pretty major task in itself. Fine if you know exactly what you are looking for, but if you are bit uncertain, then as I say ...
But the forum has come up trumps here and the application is installed and running as sweet as a nut on my development server which means that my colleagues can go and get a heads up on what they can expect when we install the final version over the summer break.
Thank you everyone for your amazing support and patience.
