I would like to get an unbias view point. These documents come from mysql.com. We are currently running Sql Server 2008 R1 and MySQL 5.0.77. The application that might be migrating will have many transaction between the database and the web application, has stored procedures currently and need the the ablility to have a data change control similiar the CDC from SQL SERVER.

Will this version of MySQL support this?

Thanks

I can't really easily compare the available features of MySQL and SQL Server because MySQL won't even allow me to see a list of features without registering.  

That's really annoying and stupid.  I have to register just to see what features the product has?  Seriously??
