New Features:

Bugs Fixed:

  • Fixed potential cardinality 0 issue for TokuDB tables if ANALYZE TABLE finds only deleted rows and no actual logical rows before it times out. Bug fixed #1607300 ( #1006 , #732 ).
  • TokuDB database.table.index names longer than 256 characters could cause server crash if background analyze table status was checked while running. Bug fixed #1005 .
  • PAM Authentication Plugin would abort authentication while checking UNIX user group membership if there were more than a thousand members. Bug fixed #1608902 .
  • If DROP DATABASE would fail to delete some of the tables in the database, the partially-executed command is logged in the binlog as DROP TABLE t1, t2, ... for the tables for which drop succeeded. A slave might fail to replicate such DROP TABLE statement if there exist foreign key relationships to any of the dropped tables and the slave has a different schema from master. Fix by checking, on the master, whether any of the database to be dropped tables participate in a Foreign Key relationship, and fail the DROP DATABASE statement immediately. Bug fixed #1525407 (upstream #79610 ).
  • PAM Authentication Plugin didn’t support spaces in the UNIX user group names. Bug fixed #1544443 .
  • Due to security reasons ld_preload libraries can now only be loaded from the system directories ( /usr/lib64 , /usr/lib ) and the MySQL installation base directory.
  • Percona Server 5.6 could not be built with the -DMYSQL_MAINTAINER_MODE=ON option. Bug fixed #1590454 .
  • In the client library, any EINTR received during network I/O was not handled correctly. Bug fixed #1591202 (upstream #82019 ).
  • The included .gitignore in the percona-server source distribution had a line *.spec , which means someone trying to check in a copy of the percona-server source would be missing the spec file required to build the RPMs. Bug fixed #1600051 .
  • Audit Log Plugin did not transcode queries. Bug fixed #1602986 .
  • LeakSanitizer-enabled build failed to bootstrap server for MTR. Bug fixed #1603978 (upstream #81674 ).
  • Fixed MYSQL_SERVER_PUBLIC_KEY connection option memory leak. Bug fixed #1604419 .
  • The fix for bug #1341067 added a call to free some of the heap memory allocated by OpenSSL . This is not safe for repeated calls if OpenSSL is linked twice through different libraries and each is trying to free the same. Bug fixed #1604676 .
  • If the changed page bitmap redo log tracking thread stops due to any reason, then shutdown will wait for a long time for the log tracker thread to quit, which it never does. Bug fixed #1606821 .
  • Audit Log Plugin events did not report the default database. Bug fixed #1435099 .
  • Canceling the TokuDB Background ANALYZE TABLE job twice or while it was in the queue could lead to server assertion. Bug fixed #1004 .
  • Fixed various spelling errors in comments and function names. Bug fixed #728 ( Otto Kekäläinen ).
  • Implemented set of fixes to make PerconaFT build and run on the AArch64 (64-bit ARMv8) architecture. Bug fixed #726 ( Alexey Kopytov ).

Other bugs fixed: #1603073 , #1604323 , #1604364 , #1604462 , #1604774 , #1606782 , #1607224 , #1607359 , #1607606 , #1607607 , #1607671 , #1608385 , #1608437 , #1608845 , #1609422 , #1610858 , #1612084 , #1612551 , #1455430 , #1455432 , #1610242 , #998 , #1003 , #729 , and #730 .
