Version 4.0 of phpMyAdmin, the popular web-based administration tool for MySQL databases, has been released. This latest version introduces a reworked user interface that replaces the somewhat dated HTML frames with a new tree style navigation implemented with JavaScript. Aside from the new user interface, the developers have also fixed a number of bugs and have made the documentation for the software more accessible.

The PHP-based web application is used by many users to administer MySQL databases, especially on web servers. With it, users can create and delete databases and modify tables and their contents; the tool can also be used to backup databases and to execute SQL commands. As in previous years, phpMyAdmin is participating in Google's Summer of Code (GSoC) programme and the developers are currently evaluating the proposals for improvements that the project has received.

phpMyAdmin 4.0 is available for download from the project's web site. Its source code is licensed under the GPLv2.
