Standalone replacement for the MySQL Client Library

MySQL Connector/C is a client library that implements the C API for client/server communication. It is a standalone replacement for the MySQL client library (libmysqlclient) shipped with MySQL Server distributions.

Reasons to use MySQL Connector/C:

* If you need only the client library, MySQL Connector/C provides everything required. There is no need to compile or install the MySQL Server package, which is much larger.

* MySQL Connector/C does not rely on the MySQL Server release cycle. Bug fixes and new features can be distributed independently of MySQL Server releases.

We're currently not uploading MySQL Connector/C to Launchpad. Please see the "External downloads" link below for source and binary packages.
