DBD::mysql 4.018 released

Dear Perl and MySQL developers, admins and enthusiasts,

I’m please to announce the release of DBD::mysql 4.018! This release includes some code cleanups, added documentation as well as new features (database handle attributes) that allow you to be able to ascertain the server and client versions (Thank you to Robert M. Jansen). An example below, from the test for this new feature, shows you how you can use these new handle attributes:

print "$dbh->{mysql_clientinfo}\n";

5.2.0-MariaDB

print "$dbh->{mysql_clientversion}\n";

50200

print "$dbh->{mysql_serverversion}\n";

50200

You can obtain the latest DBD::mysql release source from Github:

git clone git://github.com/CaptTofu/DBD-mysql.git

Or CPAN:
