Release notes 

The MySQL Proxy was split into

  * a chassis which handles cmdline, service, logging, plugin loading
  * a core library for the life-cycle, network handling and protocol decoding
  * a lua layer wrapping around the internals
  * a set of plugins: proxy, admin, debug, replicant

It also contains a few tools that reuse the above libraries:

  * mysql-binlog-dump
  * mysql-myisam-dump

We dropped libcheck in favour of glib 2.16's g_test_* functions.
