Hi Erlangers,

Henning Diedrich and I have been working a bit on the Emysql driver,


cleaning it up and removing old cruft from it. Over the last month or so we
have reached a point where 3-4 emysql branches were merged back into the
above path. It has been running in production at a customer site, Issuu,
for about 1 month without any problems to report and we believe it is
fairly stable.

NOTE: There is a backwards-incompatible change in `master`. We removed the
encoding support of automatic conversion of binaries into utf-8. This means
that client *users* are now responsible for encoding data properly. On the
other hand, this means that the driver won't try to encode binary BLOB data
as utf-8 anymore :)

Branches of interest: `master`. Try it out. It contains the merger.
Tags of interest: `0.2.16`. This tag is just *before* the merge, so if you
need time to adapt to the new setup, you can lock to this tag and obtain
the old behaviour.
