We can't guarantee new versions will work until they're out, of course. 
    WP "should" work with non-bleeding-edge versions of MySQL 5.  Not 
doing so is a bug.  As for the minimum version,


For 2.1 we are discussing bumping the MySQL requirement.  Some comments 
are here:

Not working with strict mode is a bug.  I see that the 
post_content_filtered fix fell out of 2.0.x somewhere along the way.  I 
put in a fix for 2.0.6.  2.1 should be okay.

Not necessary.

Done.  If there are still broken queries, please note them in trac and 
target them for the 2.0.6 milestone.
