Shedding away its old HTML frames based interface, the Version 4.0 of phpMyAdmin uses a new JavaScript based tree style navigation. Developers of the administration tool have resolved quite few bugs while giving the documentation a new look while making it more accessible notes the release announcement.

phpMyAdmin is used by users, not so confident with SQL syntaxes, to create and delete databases as well as modify tables and their contents. The administration tool can also be used to backup databases while advanced users can also execute SQL commands.

Version 4.0 of phpMyAdmin can be downloaded from project’s website. The source code for the same is available under the GPLv2.
