Hi Zhenlei,

Well, the thing with emit warnings about this is that we don't really know what people want. If we suddenly start doing it everyone in Central Standard Time will have a reason for complaining too.

WRT documentation, there is a note in Connector/J manual, in the upgrating to 8.0 section ( I agree it could be better documented, though. It helps if you report a documentation bug against this manual in

The problem is that MySQL protocol doesn't support TIMESTAMP with time zone information. This is why we have to "align" these values somehow. Right now there is no alternative, I'm afraid.
