Do we still need support for MySQL 3.23

MySQL 3.23 is becomming quite limiting for future developments.

Do you guys think we still need to support it or can we move to MySQL 4.1 ?

My grandmother still runs 3.23 on her Radio Shack Home Server kit. ;)

Even so, and with all due respect to dear grand-ma, I say ditch 3.23 going forward. Like 1.8.X lives the life it lives and 1.9.* expect 4.1 and beyond. A quick visit to http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/ shows that mysql thinks of 4.1 as "older", so if that's what they call 'old' then anything older is really freaking old.

So ... uh ... when are you going to obsolete all those 0.9.0.* versions of b2evolution?

I use 4.1 and 5.0 on different setups...

But if users want to use a old database server, then let them use a old version of b2evo.

btw, i don't think the forum is the best place to do a major poll like this, i think the max votes i've ever got was around 10...

It's not a major poll (yet), just checking if the water's hot :p

Ed, MySQL is living in geekland were everybody runs 5.1... but the reality of the shared hosts is somewhat different :P

Understood. So really the question is the same as one you polled a while back: what version of mysql does your host provide you with?

I get to use "4.1.19-standard" for my stuff (shared hosting account) and "4.0.25-standard-log" is what antispam central has. I can't see any reason to ever upgrade antispam's version other than the possibility of a security vulnerability showing up one day. IF that happens then it can move to 1.8 without worry.

Ah. So then it'd probably be a good thing if I were to READ THE F****** QUESTION!!!

My host has 4.1 but every now and then, they send a mail that the users who realy need 5.0, can send them a mail, and they would move that pakage.

They have a zillion 4.1 servers and only one 5.0

So strictly both are possible.

I used 4.1 but some hosts still provide 4.0 :-(
