ODBC Connector 5.1 is the newly released one for the version 5.1. I am not sure whether both versions will work side-by-side. 5.1 is the more stable release.

yes, they can be installed together.

>how come they are still offering 3.51 then?
"offering" is the wrong term. there are quite some people using the 3.51, while the 5.1 is still quite new.
and not everybody changes the connection stuff "instantly" when new stuff comes out.

cool - so can the one be installed side by side the other?
or must 3.51 be uninstalled first?

thanks!
