After discussing whether we should drop MySQL 3.23.23 support with users, developers, and hosting providers, we’ve reached the following roadmap. The WordPress 2.0.x branch will continue to support 3.23.23 for the foreseeable future, and WordPress 2.1 will require MySQL 4.0. Many people, especially plugin developers, wanted WordPress 2.1 to require MySQL 4.1. There are still a number of hosts running 4.0, however, so we decided to postpone bumping to 4.1 until WordPress 2.2 comes out. Hopefully this will give everyone sufficient notice to upgrade their installations. Since MySQL AB has discontinued support for 4.0, upgrading seems like a good idea regardless of what WordPress requires.
