I have no objection to ending support for older versions of MySQL, but I don't think it is necessary to display such a warning message.

We have never displayed such a message and have quietly ended support for older versions of databases. If we will display such a warning message, we have to consider to display the same message for PostgreSQL and SQLite.

I agree with Go on this.
