./databases/mysql55-server, MySQL 5, a free SQL database (server)

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.5.62nb3, Package name: mysql-server-5.5.62nb3, 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 in MySQL 5.5.62

Functionality Added or Changed

* Previously, file I/O performed in the I/O cache in the mysys library was not \ 
instrumented, affecting in particular file I/O statistics reported by the \ 
Performance Schema about the binary log index file. Now, this I/O is \ 
instrumented and Performance Schema statistics are accurate. Thanks to Yura \ 
Sorokin for the contribution.

* The zlib library version bundled with MySQL was raised from version 1.2.3 to \ 
version 1.2.11. MySQL implements compression with the help of the zlib library.

* The zlib compressBound() function in zlib 1.2.11 returns a slightly higher \ 
estimate of the buffer size required to compress a given length of bytes than it \ 
did in zlib version 1.2.3. The compressBound() function is called by InnoDB \ 
functions that determine the maximum row size permitted when creating compressed \ 
InnoDB tables or inserting rows into compressed InnoDB tables. As a result, \ 
CREATE TABLE ... ROW_FORMAT=COMPRESSED or INSERT operations with row sizes very \ 
close to the maximum row size that were successful in earlier releases could now \ 
fail.

Bugs Fixed

* MySQL Server and test RPM packages were missing perl-Data-Dumper as a dependency.

* For the mysql client, the -b short option was associated with two long \ 
options, --no-beep and --binary-as-hex. The -b option now is associated only \ 
with --no-beep.

* During server startup/shutdown, PID files could be mishandled.

* For MEMORY tables, memory overflow errors could occur.

* When converting from a BLOB (or TEXT) type to a smaller BLOB (or TEXT) type, \ 
no warning or error was reported informing about the truncation or data loss. \ 
Now an appropriate error is issued in strict SQL mode and a warning in nonstrict \ 
SQL mode.

* ALTER TABLE ... REORGANIZE PARTITION ... could result in incorrect behavior if \ 
any partition other than the last was missing the VALUES LESS THAN part of the \ 
syntax.

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 \ 
bug.
* 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 \ 
transactions.
* 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() \ 
instead.
* 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 \ 
packages.
* 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 \ 
or INDEX DIRECTORY clauses.
* 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 \ 
exit.
* 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 \ 
results.
* 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.
