I guess the record had changed before 3.23.51. Using the latest release availabe (and state this on the README so at least I know which release of MySQL to install) is the best for me.

I guess no. The Windows port of PHP has allways included the mysql client DLLs and I never had problems whatever the MySQL version I used. Besides, I do not need to have a MySQL server on my Windows box, I may use a remote MySQL server on Linux.
If this were true, we'd have to allways recompile the MySQL unit to match our MySQL install. It doesn't makes sense.
