Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.5.59, Package name: mysql-client-5.5.59, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

MySQL is a SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. SQL is the most
popular database language in the world. MySQL is a client-server implementation
that consists of a server daemon `mysqld' and many different client

The main goals of MySQL are speed and robustness.

The base upon which MySQL is built is a set of routines that have been used in
a highly demanding production environment for many years. While MySQL is still
in development it already offers a rich and highly useful function set.

The official way to pronounce 'MySQL' is 'My Ess Que Ell' (Not MY-SEQUEL).

This package contains the MySQL client programs and libraries.

mysql55: updated to 5.5.59

MySQL 5.5.59:

Configuration Notes
* For RHEL, SLES, and Fedora RPMs, the default plugin directory for debug builds \ 
has been changed from /usr/lib64/mysql/plugin to /usr/lib64/mysql/plugin/debug.

Test Suite Notes
* Documentation for the MySQL Test Suite is now maintained in the MySQL source \ 
tree using Doxygen (see \ 
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/mysql-serv … T_RUN.html). The \ 
related Unix man pages that previously were produced from the old test suite \ 
manual are no longer updated and have gone out of date. Consequently, they are \ 
no longer included in MySQL distributions.

Bugs Fixed
* InnoDB: Warnings that should only appear in a debug version of MySQL were \ 
printed to the error log when the length of the history list exceeded 2000000.
* Packaging: Initialization of the MySQL Server Docker container failed with the \ 
message “hostname: command not found” when the server was being initialized. \ 
That was due to a missing library in the Docker image.
* Partitioning: Queries involving NULL were not always handled correctly on \ 
tables that were partitioned by LIST.
* Microsoft Windows: On Windows, with the myisam_use_mmap and flush system \ 
variables enabled, MyISAM did not always flush table files properly.
* VALUES() was not handled correctly in some cases.
* Incorrect results or a server exit could result when SHA2() was passed a \ 
user-defined variable in some character sets.
* Creating a table with excessive index information could cause a server exit.
* Setting the MYSQL_GROUP_SUFFIX environment variable had no effect.
* A circular dependency problem involving sql/sql_builtin.cc was resolved.
* A prepared statement containing an ORDER BY list that referred to a parameter \ 
was not always handled correctly.

Log message:
mysql55: update to 5.5.58

Changes in MySQL 5.5.58:

Packaging Notes
mysqlcheck was missing in the MySQL Server Docker image, which prevented \ 
mysql_upgrade from running.

Bugs Fixed
Replication: Replication clients no longer enable LOCAL capability for LOAD DATA \ 
statements, because they do not use LOAD DATA LOCAL statements.
yaSSL could incorrectly perform TLS cipher negotiation.
The server failed to check the maximum path length for partition names.
Identifiers containing a mixture of backslashes and backticks could be parsed \ 
NAME_CONST() can return null if incorrect arguments are given. In some cases, \ 
this was not handled and could cause a server exit.

Security Notes
* Security Fix: The linked OpenSSL library for the MySQL Commercial Server has \ 
been updated to version 1.0.2l. Issues fixed in the new OpenSSL version are \ 
described at http://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html.
  This change does not affect the Oracle-produced MySQL Community build of MySQL \ 
Server, which uses the yaSSL library instead.

Platform-Specific Notes
* Linux: The generic Linux build for MySQL 5.6 is now built on Oracle Linux 6 \ 
using glibc 2.12. Systems that use the build need to have glibc 2.12 or later \ 
installed on them.

Functionality Added or Changed
* For Windows, MSI installer packages now include a check for the required \ 
Visual Studio redistributable package, and produce a message asking the user to \ 
install it if it is missing.
* The mysql client now supports a --binary-as-hex option that causes display of \ 
binary data using hexadecimal notation (0xvalue). Thanks to Daniël van Eeden \ 
for the patch.
* mysqlaccess now looks for its configuration file only in the SYSCONFDIR \ 
directory and /etc.

Bugs Fixed
* InnoDB: The server allocated memory unnecessarily for an operation that \ 
rebuilt the table.
* InnoDB: When using an index merge optimizer switch, a SELECT COUNT(*) \ 
operation sometimes returned 0. Partitioning code incorrectly performed a memcpy \ 
instead of a column copy of columns read by the index, causing the wrong records \ 
to be copied.
* Replication: A USE statement that followed a SET GTID_NEXT statement sometimes \ 
had no effect.
* Replication: If the binary log on a master server was rotated and a full disk \ 
condition occurred on the partition where the binary log file was being stored, \ 
the server could stop unexpectedly. The fix adds a check for the existence of \ 
the binary log when the dump thread switches to next binary log file. If the \ 
binary log is disabled, all binary logs up to the current active log are \ 
transmitted to slave and an error is returned to the receiver thread.
* Replication: If a relay log index file named relay log files that did not \ 
exist, RESET SLAVE ALL sometimes did not fully clean up properly.
* Replication: mysqlbinlog, if invoked with the --raw option, does not flush the \ 
output file until the process terminates. But if also invoked with the \ 
--stop-never option, the process never terminates, thus nothing is ever written \ 
to the output file. Now the output is flushed after each event.
* Replication: A memory leak in mysqlbinlog was fixed. The leak happened when \ 
processing fake rotate events, or when using --raw and the destination log file \ 
could not be created. The leak only occurred when processing events from a \ 
remote server. Thanks to Laurynas Biveinis for his contribution to fixing this \ 
* Replication: Multi-threaded slaves could not be configured with small queue \ 
sizes using slave_pending_jobs_size_max if they ever needed to process \ 
transactions larger than that size. Any packet larger than \ 
slave_pending_jobs_size_max was rejected with the error \ 
ER_MTS_EVENT_BIGGER_PENDING_JOBS_SIZE_MAX, even if the packet was smaller than \ 
the limit set by slave_max_allowed_packet.
* With this fix, slave_pending_jobs_size_max becomes a soft limit rather than a \ 
hard limit. If the size of a packet exceeds slave_pending_jobs_size_max but is \ 
less than slave_max_allowed_packet, the transaction is held until all the slave \ 
workers have empty queues, and then processed. All subsequent transactions are \ 
held until the large transaction has been completed. The queue size for slave \ 
workers can therefore be limited while still allowing occasional larger \ 
* mysqldump could write database names in USE statements incorrectly.
* If the mysql_stmt_close() C API function was called, it freed memory that \ 
later could be accessed if mysql_stmt_error(), mysql_stmt_errno(), or \ 
mysql_stmt_sqlstate() was called. To obtain error information after a call to \ 
mysql_stmt_close(), call mysql_error(), mysql_errno(), or mysql_sqlstate() \ 
* Queries could be cached incorrectly, leading to incorrect query results, under \ 
these circumstances: InnoDB table; rows are being inserted but have not yet been \ 
committed; a query uses the table as a base table in a derived table; the \ 
optimizer chooses to materialize the derived table.
* Man pages for a few utilities were missing from Debian/Ubuntu packages.
* The field-t unit test failed to run with AddressSanitizer enabled. Thanks to \ 
Laurynas Biveinis for the patch.
* Debian client packages were missing information about conflicts with native \ 
* The Perl path in #! lines at the beginning of Perl scripts has been adjusted \ 
to /usr/local/bin/perl for FreeBSD 11.
* The server exited abnormally attempting to access invalid memory.
* A race condition could occur for CREATE TABLE statements with DATA DIRECTORY \ 
* MySQL compilation in different directories produced different builds to \ 
leakage of absolute paths into debug information and __FILE__.
* mysqld_failed to start the server if the --datadir option was specified with a \ 
relative path name.
* With read_only enabled, creation of non-TEMPORARY tables by non-SUPER users \ 
was permitted under certain conditions.
*Certain stored functions, if used in a query WHERE clause, could be handled \ 
using Index Condition Pushdown (which should not happen), resulting in a server \ 
* On x86 machines, the uint3korr() macro read 4 bytes of data instead of the \ 
intended 3 bytes.
* An assertion was raised during a fetch operation by the memcached plugin.
* Queries that contained UNION in a subquery and GROUP BY could return incorrect \ 
* LOAD XML INFILE performance became noticeably slower when the XML file being \ 
read contained a great many spaces, such as those introduced by indenting or \ 
pretty-printing. Now all leading whitespace is trimmed from each such value \ 
before reading it into memory.

Log message:
Updated database/mysql55-{client,server} to 5.5.56
(From https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysq … -5-56.html)

Changes in MySQL 5.5.56 (2017-05-02, General availability)

Binary packages for MySQL 5.5.56 are identical to those for MySQL
5.5.55, except for the version number. The change in 5.5.56 for Bug
#25942414 is applicable only to those who build from source.

Security Notes

  For the WITH_SSL CMake option, no is no longer a permitted value or
the default value. The default is now bundled. Consequently, MySQL now
is always built with SSL support. (Bug #25942414)
(pkgsrc changes)
- Removed ssl option both from PKG_{SUPPORTED,SUGGESTED}_OPTIONS.
  This may give error if ssl is explicitly designated, but I believe
  that is the (kind of) upstream intension.
  (or left ssl in SUPPORTED and ignore it ?)
