In a somewhat relaxed fashion -- MySQL 4.0 is not supported since October 1. However, it would have been too hasty to jump to MySQL 4.1 , let there be a transition period.

By the time we ship Drupal 6 , MySQL support will end too (it ends on 2006 dec 31th) so it's safe to say that we require _at least_ 4.1

And I need to contradict with Dries on his previous letter: there is extremely little chance D6 will run on M4.0 as the point of all this is to use M4.1 only features.
