=== mysql ===
MySQL has been updated to 5.1.x.  This represents a major version upgrade from Fedora 10's 5.0.x release series.
You should test database-using applications for possible incompatibilities.  Upstream's release notes can be found at
If you are upgrading a Fedora 10 installation that includes a live 5.0.x MySQL database, don't forget to run mysql_upgrade after completing the software upgrade.  There is a [ report] that this may fail altogether if the 5.0.x database had been updated from an even older installation without running mysql_upgrade at the time.  If you think this might be the case for your database, it is prudent to run mysql_upgrade on the Fedora 10 installation before upgrading.  (And, of course, you should have backups if the database content is at all critical.)
=== postgresql ===
Fedora 11 includes version 8.3.6 of  postgreSQL.
A dump/restore is not required for those running 8.3.X. However, it is recommended to REINDEX all GiST indexes after the upgrade.
