There are two important database changes.  One is that MySQL connectors use the 'new' password format started with MySQL 4.1 and won't connect to MySQL servers older than 4.1.  Yes, there still are some.

Another is that is not mentioned on that page is the old 'mssql' Microsoft SQL Server driver is no longer supported.  There is a new one from Microsoft.  http://us2.php.net/manual/en/intro.mssql.php

You're welcome.  I figured that website was better than me trying to list the differences myself.  Good luck with your projects!
