MySQL 4.0 EOL
By Giuseppe Maxia on Dec 14, 2008
Extended support for MySQL 4.0 is about to be discontinued.
According to MySQL Lifecycle policy, MySQL 4.0 is now in extended support, meaning that only security and extremely severe bug fixes were applied to this release. The present condition ends on December 31, 2008. Then, MySQL 4.0 will join 3.23 in the list of unsupported versions.
The next version to meet the same fate will be 4.1, exactly one year later.
