Hi Ernesto,

> In #31486 [1] you updated adodb to v5.14. It was also merged in TYPO3
> 4.5. Could you please explain:

Oh, I merged it to 4.5. I thought I just wanted to give the +2... Well, 
it was just to "maintain" it as advertised in Gerrit for all active 
versions (4.5, 4.6, 4.7).

> a) what was the previous version in the 4.5 branch?

According to the ext_emconf.php file, it was v5.11.

> b) does this update contain only bug fixes and why do we need this
> (risk) in 4.5? Any visible benefits (bugs that people stumbled over)?

Actually not, it's a standard maintenance from a 3rd-party library that 
I do about once a year, if something is available.

> Would be fine to have this information available before we have our next
> 4.5 release! Thanks!

Feel free to revert it in 4.5 and sorry for the inconvenience, I'll be 
more restrictive next time.
