Subject:5.0.19 libmysqlclient not ABI-compatible with 5.0.18
View as plain text  
Is it intentional that 5.0.19 breaks binary compatibility with clients
built against 5.0.18?  The addition of a field to the MYSQL struct has
had that effect, since a client that has allocated its own MYSQL struct
will have not made it large enough.  This is for example causing crashes
in MySQL-python for me.  It woulda been nice if there were at least a
large warning in the release notes about it.
