As far as I can tell from the sourceforge page, there is no release called 1.3.0 yet. Our policy is not to worry about chasing unreleased versions, at least until the get to release-candidate mode, since plenty of things could change between now and release time (and have done in the past, both with MySQLdb and other modules we rely upon).

For example, the fact that those particular functions have been moved inside an underscore-prefixed attribute means they probably aren't intended to be used by public code any longer. That may be a bug in MySQLdb, since presumably one is meant to be able to get the server version and check connection liveness or it may be that Andy is intended to provide a different way to do it or it may be that the recommended way is to refer to _db. So let's wait and see how it pans out (you may wish to follow up with the MySQLdb project and see if users of that module are meant to be using _db to get that information).

Let's put this on hold until there's a release. We don't want to inadvertently look like we're supporting something that isn't released yet.
