I believe Dreamhost currently uses MySQL 4.0.x. Is there any plan on moving to MySQL 4.1.x?
It's the support of MySQL 4.1 for unicode (utf-8) that I've been wanting to try. I want to make a site that will save data (strings) for multiple languages (characters) including chinese traditional, chinese simplified, korea, and japanese. With sorting and full text (and regular expression?) search capabilities.
As far as I know, this is not possible with MySQL 4.0. If it is may someone enlighten me on this?
