	"error" message in the output for the text '[Warning]'. If an "error"
	appears as warning, the installation is not halted.
	- Incompatible change: when using --force to install on top of an existing
	sandbox, the old data directory is copied to 'old_data' instead of being

	- Fixed version detection to support also MySLQL 5.7.7 and MySQL 5.7.8.
	  A more resilient patch will follow.

	  escaped properly

	  have clashing port numbers.

1.13 23-Oct-2007
	- (INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE) removed '.sh' suffix from all scripts
