Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.7.18nb2, Package name: mysql-server-5.7.18nb2, 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).

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.

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.

Changes 5.7.16:

Security Notes
--------------
* Incompatible Change: For STANDALONE and WIN builds, the default \ 
secure_file_priv value has changed from the empty string to NULL. This is a \ 
secure-by-default setting because it disables import and export operations. To \ 
permit those operations, set secure_file_priv to the path name of the directory \ 
to use for those operations.
* The linked OpenSSL library for the MySQL Commercial Server has been updated to \ 
version 1.0.1u. For a description of issues fixed in this version, see \ 
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.

Functionality Added or Changed
------------------------------
* yaSSL was upgraded to version 2.4.2. This upgrade corrects issues with: \ 
Potential AES side channel leaks; DSA padding for unusual sizes; the \ 
SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations() OpenSSL compatibility function failing to handle \ 
long path directory names.
