Branch: pkgsrc-2014Q1, Version: 5.5.37, Package name: mysql-client-5.5.37, 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.

   Changes 5.5.37:

   Functionality Added or Changed

   On Solaris, mysql_config --libs now includes -R/path/to/library so that \ 
libraries can be found at runtime.

   Bugs Fixed

   InnoDB: A regression introduced by Bug 14329288 would result in a performance \ 
degradation when a compressed table does not fit into memory.

   InnoDB: The maximum value for innodb_thread_sleep_delay is now 1000000 \ 
microseconds. The previous maximum value (4294967295 microseconds on 32-bit and \ 
18446744073709551615 microseconds on 64-bit) was unnecessarily large. Because \ 
the maximum value of innodb_thread_sleep_delay is limited by the value set for \ 
innodb_adaptive_max_sleep_delay (when set to a non-zero value), the maximum \ 
value for innodb_thread_sleep_delay is now the same as the maximum value for \ 

   InnoDB: In debug builds, creating a unique index on a binary column, with \ 
input data containing duplicate keys, would cause an assertion.

   InnoDB: InnoDB would fail to start when innodb_data_file_path specified the \ 
data file size in kilobytes by appending K to the size value.

   InnoDB: An insert buffer merge would cause an assertion error due to \ 
incorrectly handled ownership information for externally stored BLOBs.

   InnoDB: Assertion failure in thread thread_num in file ibuf0ibuf.cc line 4080
   InnoDB: Failing assertion: rec_get_deleted_flag(rec, page_is_comp(page))

   InnoDB: Decreasing the auto_increment_increment value would have no affect on \ 
the next auto-increment value.

   Replication: The server did not handle correctly the insertion of a row \ 
larger than 4 GB when using row-based replication.

   Replication: When using row-based replication, an additional auto-increment \ 
column on the slave version of a table was not updated correctly; a zero was \ 
inserted instead.

   Replication: Statements involving the Performance Schema tables should not be \ 
written to the binary log, because the content of these tables is applicable \ 
only to a given MySQL Server instance, and may differ greatly between different \ 
servers in a replication topology. The database administrator should be able to \ 
configure (INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE) or flush (TRUNCATE TABLE) performance \ 
schema tables on a single server without affecting others. However, when \ 
replicating from a MySQL 5.5 master to a MySQL 5.5 or later slave, warnings \ 
about unsafe statements updating Performance Schema tables were elevated to \ 
errors. For MySQL 5.6 and later slaves, this prevented the simultaneous use of \ 
performance_schema and GTIDs (see Replication with Global Transaction \ 
Identifiers, in the MySQL 5.6 Manual).

   This fix causes all updates on tables in the performance_schema database to \ 
be filtered on the master and not replicated, regardless of the type of logging \ 
that is in effect. Prior to this fix, statements using were handled by being \ 
marked as unsafe for replication, which caused warnings during execution; the \ 
statements were nonetheless written to the binary log, regardless of the logging \ 
format in effect.

   Existing replication behavior for tables in the INFORMATION_SCHEMA database \ 
is not changed by this fix.

   For more information, see MySQL Performance Schema.

   Compilation failed if MySQL was configured with CFLAGS set to include a \ 
-Werror option with an argument.

   A shared libmysqld embedded server library was not built on Linux.

   While printing the server version, the mysql client did not check for buffer \ 
overflow in a string variable.

   Contraction information in a collation could be mishandled, resulting in \ 
incorrect decisions about whether a character is part of a contraction, and \ 
miscalculation of contraction weights.

   DROP TRIGGER succeeded even with the read_only system variable enabled.

   Updating the Performance Schema setup_instruments table on a replication \ 
master caused a slave to exit.

   Due to a race condition, it was possible for two threads to end up with the \ 
same query ID for different queries.

   When run by root, mysqld --help --verbose exited with a nonzero error code \ 
after displaying the help message.

   MySQL client programs from a Community Edition distribution could not connect \ 
using SSL to a MySQL server from an Enterprise Edition. This was due to a \ 
difference in certificate handling by yaSSL and OpenSSL (used for Community and \ 
Enterprise, respectively). OpenSSL expected a blank certificate to be sent when \ 
not all of the --ssl-ca, --ssl-cert, and --ssl-key options were specified, and \ 
yaSSL did not do so. To resolve this, yaSSL has been modified to send a blank \ 
certificate when an option is missing.

   A deadlock error occurring during subquery execution could cause an assertion \ 
to be raised.

   The Performance Schema stage/sql/Waiting to get readlock instrument is no \ 
longer used and has been removed.

   For system variables that take a string value, SET statements permitted an \ 
unquoted value, but values that contained dots were parsed incorrectly and only \ 
part of the value was assigned. For example, SET GLOBAL slow_query_log_file = \ 
my_slow.log assigned the value my_slow. Now such values must be quoted or an \ 
error occurs.

   On Windows, mysql_install_db.pl could be run only from within the bin \ 
directory under the installation directory.
