The reference manual states that cluster support on windows is only experimental.
This is no longer true. There is full production support available now.

How to repeat:
See last paragraph on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysql-cluster-multi-install.html 
and compare to bottom of table on http://www.mysql.com/support/supportedplatforms/cluster.html

Suggested fix:
Remove "alfa" and replace "experimental" with "full production" in the reference manual.

Fix in progress. I've already replaced the offending terms where applicable (referencing NDB-7.1.3+). Commit is here: http://lists.mysql.com/commits/110735

Note that we do *not* say "full production" or otherwise qualify the term "production [use|setting|environment|etc]" in MySQL documentation -- a product release is either "production" grade (or "GA") or it is not, period.

Working with Jack A. on adding/updating key installation/configuration info specific to Windows -- ETA on this is today or tomorrow.
