Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.7.19nb2, Package name: mysql-server-5.7.19nb2, 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 server programs and libraries including
embedded server (by PKG_OPTION).

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.

Recursive revbump from boost update
   2017-04-11 22:49:15 by Adam Ciarcinski | Files touched by this commit (10) | Package updated
Log message:
Changes 5.7.18:
* Windows builds now use the default runtime libraries (builds use the /MD flag).
* CMake support was added for compiling with Developer Studio 12.6.
* MySQL failed to compile if -DENABLE_DEBUG_SYNC=OFF AND -DWITH_DEBUG=ON were \ 
both given. The ENABLE_DEBUG_SYNC option has been removed and enabling \ 
WITH_DEBUG enables Debug Sync.
* The --temp-pool server option is deprecated and will be removed in MySQL 8.0.
* Support for DTrace is deprecated and is removed in MySQL 8.0.
* Changes in RPM package structure require a larger set of packages to be \ 
removed to install MySQL Server cleanly.
* To avoid potential race conditions, Debian packages now use the GNU install \ 
utility rather than a combination of mkdir, touch, and chown.
* The my-default.cnf.sh file (used to produce a default my-default.cnf or \ 
my-default.ini file) is no longer included in source distributions and \ 
my-default.cnf and my-default.ini are no longer included in or installed by \ 
distribution packages.
* Reminder: MySQL 5.7 requires the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable \ 
Package to run on Windows platforms. Users should make sure the package has been \ 
installed on the system before starting the server. The package is available at \ 
the Microsoft Download Center.
* PROCEDURE ANALYSE() syntax is now deprecated and is removed in MySQL 8.0.
* The use of \N as a synonym for NULL in SQL statements is deprecated and is \ 
removed in MySQL 8.0. Use NULL instead.
* The linked OpenSSL library for the MySQL Commercial Server has been updated to \ 
version 1.0.2k.

Log message:
Changes 5.7.17:

Compilation Notes
For GCC versions higher than 4.4, -fno-expensive-optimizations was replaced with \ 
-ffp-contract=off, which has the effect of enabling more optimizations.

Security Notes
Incompatible Change: These changes were made to mysqld_safe:
* Unsafe use of rm and chown in mysqld_safe could result in privilege \ 
escalation. chown now can be used only when the target directory is /var/log. An \ 
incompatible change is that if the directory for the Unix socket file is \ 
missing, it is no longer created; instead, an error occurs. Due to these \ 
changes, /bin/bash is required to run mysqld_safe on Solaris. /bin/sh is still \ 
used on other Unix/Linux platforms.
* The --ledir option now is accepted only on the command line, not in option files.
* mysqld_safe ignores the current working directory.

Other related changes:
* Initialization scripts that invoke mysqld_safe pass --basedir explicitly.
* Initialization scripts create the error log file only if the base directory is \ 
/var/log or /var/lib.
* Unused systemd files for SLES were removed.

* MySQL Server now includes a plugin library that enables administrators to \ 
introduce an increasing delay in server response to clients after a certain \ 
number of consecutive failed connection attempts. This capability provides a \ 
deterrent that slows down brute force attacks that attempt to access MySQL user \ 
accounts. For more information, see The Connection-Control Plugin.

* OpenSSL is ending support for version 1.0.1 in December 2016; see \ 
https://www.openssl.org/policies/releasestrat.html. Consequently, MySQL \ 
Commercial Server builds now use version 1.0.2 rather than version 1.0.1, and \ 
the linked OpenSSL library for the MySQL Commercial Server has been updated from \ 
version 1.0.1 to version 1.0.2j. For a description of issues fixed in this \ 
version, see https://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.
