Hello Patrick,

Thank you for the report.
I think that link needs to be updated since current GA is Connector/Python 1.0.12.

But for now ou can download it from below official site:

Latest GA version can be downloaded from:
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/python/

If you want exact/old version then you may want to try here:

http://downloads.mysql.com/archives.php?p=mysql-connector-python-1.0
http://downloads.mysql.com/archives.php?p=mysql-connector-python-1.0&v=1.0.10

Thanks,
Umesh

Saying "use from the download site" is pretty much useless for anyone building out a python application in a standard way with pip.  

This is a major show-stopper to people using the python library *every single time* you do a release.

Hello Patrick,

I'm able to download it from http://cdn.mysql.com/Downloads/Connector-Python/mysql-connector-python-1.0.10.zip

and from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/mysql-connector-python

It seems the broken link is fixed now, could you please check/confirm if you are still having issues?

Thanks,
Umesh

Hi Patrick,

Its seems there were some issues with the download site.

I have now updated the PyPI entry to provide 1.0.12 version of Connector/Python. If there is a 404, my (not so great advice) is to try again later.

Cheers,
Geert
