Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.5.50, Package name: mysql-server-5.5.50, 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
programs/libraries.

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 server programs and libraries including
embedded server (by PKG_OPTION).

Changes 5.5.0:

Functionality Added or Changed

The version of the tcmalloc library included in MySQL distributions was very \ 
old. It has been removed and is no longer included with MySQL.

Bugs Fixed

INSERT with ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE and REPLACE on a table with a foreign key \ 
constraint defined failed with an incorrect “duplicate entry” error rather \ 
than a foreign key constraint violation error.

Setting sort_buffer_size to a very large value could cause some operations to \ 
fail with an out-of-memory error.

Several potential buffer overflow issues were corrected.

If the CA certificate as given to the --ssl-ca option had an invalid path, yaSSL \ 
returned an error message different from OpenSSL. Now both return SSL connection \ 
error: SSL_CTX_set_default_verify_paths failed.

Some string functions returned one or a combination of their parameters as their \ 
result. If one of the parameters had a non-ASCII character set, the result \ 
string had the same character set, resulting in incorrect behavior when an ASCII \ 
string was expected.

A null pointer dereference of a parser structure could occur during stored \ 
procedure name validation.

mysqld_multi displayed misleading error messages when it was unable to execute \ 
my_print_defaults.

Security Notes
--------------
MySQL client programs now support an --ssl-mode option that enables you to \ 
specify the security state of the connection to the server. The default value is \ 
DISABLED (establish an unencrypted connection). --ssl-mode=REQUIRED) can be \ 
specified to require a secure connection, or fail if a secure connection cannot \ 
be obtained.

These clients support --ssl-mode: mysql, mysqladmin, mysqlcheck, mysqldump, \ 
mysqlimport, mysqlshow, mysqlpump, mysqlslap, mysqltest, mysql_upgrade.

For more information, see Command Options for Secure Connections.

Log message:
Changes 5.5.48:
* yaSSL was upgraded to version 2.3.9. This upgrade corrects an issue in which \ 
yaSSL handled only cases of zero or one leading zeros for the key agreement \ 
instead of potentially any number, which in rare cases could cause connections \ 
to fail when using DHE cipher suites.
* The Valgrind function signature in mysql-test/valgrind.supp was upgraded for \ 
Valgrind 3.11.
* Bugs Fixed

Log message:
Changes 5.5.47:
MySQL Server RPM packages now contain a conflict indicator for MySQL Connector \ 
C, such that an error occurs when installing MySQL Server if MySQL Connector C \ 
is also installed. To install MySQL Server, remove any MySQL Connector C \ 
packages first.

mysql_upgrade now attempts to print more informative errors than FATAL ERROR: \ 
Upgrade failed.

These client programs now support the --enable-cleartext-plugin option: \ 
mysqlcheck, mysqldump, mysqlimport, mysqlshow. This option enables the \ 
mysql_clear_password cleartext authentication plugin. (See The Cleartext \ 
Client-Side Authentication Plugin.)
