Update Information:

Upstream Changelog: 1.0.8 (2012-12-17)

* Fixed MySQLConnection.ping() so it only reconnects when the reconnect argument is set to True. (BUG#15915243)

* Fixed storing multiple results after calling stored procedures which are using arguments. (BUG#15916486)

* Fixed support for connecting to MySQL using IPv6 addresses. (BUG#15876886)

* Fixed handling MySQL errors when doing handshake. (BUG#15836979)

* Fixed support for connecting to MySQL using IPv6 addresses. (BUG#15876886, BUG#15927825)

* Fixed reading the header of MySQL packets. Previously, we were reading the MySQL packet headers as 4 (or 7) bytes long buffers from the socket. When we did have the correct length, we would immediately raise an exception. We now keep reading data from the socket until we got the full header or bail out on errors. (BUG#14829471)

* Fixed the error message when the TCP/IP port number is not a valid integer. Strings are first converted to integer and raise an error with a proper error when this fails. (BUG#13808727)

* Fixed authenticating for Python v2 using usernames and/or passwords which contain Unicode characters using Python v2. (BUG#14843456)

* Fixed reporting of socket errors. (BUG#14802017)

* Fixed executemany() to support the pyformat parameter style. (BUG#14754894) The regular expression parsing the INSERT statement did not work when pyformat markers where used, that is, '%(c1)s' for example. This is now fixed so both ANSI C printf and Python extended format codes can be used by MySQLCursor.executemany().
