Dear all,

 

I came across the following statement on one website:

"Note: Since MySQL 5.5.3 you should use utf8mb4 rather than utf8. They both refer to the UTF-8 encoding, but the older utf8 had a MySQL-specific limitation preventing use of characters numbered above 0xFFFD."

 

1) Is there any drawbacks in using utf8mb4, or it is recommended for use from now on?
