MySQL Proxy 0.8.2 is a maintenance release and focuses on these areas:
Adding the protocol changes of MySQL 5.5 and later
Removing the “admin” plugin from the list of default plugins, as it requires configuration since 0.8.1
Note to Windows Users
The Microsoft Visual C++ runtime libraries are now a requirement for running MySQL Proxy. Users that do not have these libraries must download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update.
