Does xF work with MySQL 5.5?

Does anyone know of any problems with MySQL 5.5 and XenForo? Also are there any problems with WHM/cPanel with MySQL 5.5? I am just looking to utilize the amazing improvements in 5.5 specifically the performance boost. Thanks in advance.

XenForo works with MySQL 5.0+

Generally speaking, newer versions of MySQL should be fully backward compatible.

I haven't confirmed this myself. I did some searching and didn't find any reports of problems with pma and mysql 5.5, but I can't find any documentation that pma explicitly supports mysql 5.5.

Maybe some one else here can confirm this for you. Or you can post over on
