Sorry, the website text is an oversight, it should've been updated.

We'll update the docs as well to point out what's going on with respect to what version you should use with what version of the server.

If you're not subscribed to the mailing list, you should be, as announcements about all JDBC driver releases end up there, with helpful text such as this in them:

"MySQL Connector/J 3.1.5, a new version of the Type-IV all-Java JDBC
driver for MySQL, has been released.

Version 3.1.5 is the first and only planned GAMMA release
of the 3.1 series that is suitable for use with any current or
development version of MySQL (e.g. 3.23, 4.0, 4.1 or 5.0).

This version of Connector/J is required to use server-side prepared
statements with MySQL-4.1 or invoke stored procecdures or retrieve view
metadata with MySQL-5.0.

If no fatal bugs are found with 3.1.5 in the next few weeks, Connector/J
3.1.6 should be released as a generally available/production build
before the winter holidays."

What happens if you use Connector/J 3.1.5 _without_ _any_ options?
