    If you need some sort of progress meter: go to http://bugs.mysql.com/
    and look for open bugs in 5.1.

    Currently 5.1 is BETA. Next version will be RC-1 (hopefully).
    The version after RC-1 will be GA.

    But even then you may want to wait. Experience showed, that some bugs
    are well hidden and will be found only after a lot of users have
    upgraded to the new version. Sorry for that!

    If you want to help us to release 5.1 soon - go use it and report any
    bugs you find! ;-)

    i want to know, in MySQL term, what is the meaning of production then?

    since from the http://bugs.mysql.com/, even 4.1, many serious bugs are
    outstanding...

    Possible. But those bugs have been found *after* 4.1 went GA.

    MySQL 4.1 was released as a production version 2004-10-23 according to
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/news.html

    A search for open S2 and S1 bugs at bugs.mysql.com shows that all
    currently open serious and critical bugs against MySQL 4.1 were reported
    after its production release. So it's possible that all S2 and S1 bugs
    were resolved at the time the production release of MySQL 4.1 was made.

    The earliest open Serious Bug, #6298, was reported 2004-10-28 (and that
    bug is really only a doentation fix request).

    The earliest open Critical Bug, #10348, was reported 2005-05-03.

    I assume that once software is released as "production", it is never
    reclassified as "beta" even if serious or critical bugs are found to
    affect the production release. This is customary for all software, not
    just MySQL.
