How to find out the Version of MySQL and other bundled software of Xampp !

I have been looking for version of MySQL for my xampp installation.

For those, who are not aware, xampp is a bundled package of many software and very easy to install. It has Apache, MySQL, PHP and many more.

You can read more about this in
So i had installed some version of xampp in my PC and completely forgot about it.

I had some issue with MySQL and wanted to know which version it was using , and oh! it was so difficult to find.

After that i came across "Readme" file which has everything written on it.

It is in xampp control panel-> Click on Help-> Now you see "Read Me" in another pop-up window

Click on ReadMe it will give all details of all software installed with xampp.

Something like this :

###### ApacheFriends XAMPP (Basispaket) version 1.7.0 ######

  + Apache 2.2.11
  + MySQL 5.1.30 (Community Server)
  + PHP 5.2.8 + PEAR (Support for PHP 4 has been discontinued)
