    Hi everyone,

    MySQL 5.5.3 introduced a new character set: utf8mb4. It seems to become a preferred character set to use over the original utf8. (utf8mb4 is a superset of utf8 which support more characters, see <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/charset-unicode-utf8mb4.html>.)

    Also, a few references:

    I've written a patch for my personal use which allows ISPConfig to support utf8mb4 when available. I'm not sure it meets ISPConfig standards or anything, but it works for me. :)

    Thanks for the patch. I've added it to the bugtracker.
