What defaults would you like to see changed in MySQL 5.7?

In MySQL 5.6, one of the most well received changes was improving the default configuration to be safer, and easier to use.

We are seeking community feedback for improvements that can be made to the default configuration in MySQL 5.7. Please leave a comment, or get in touch with me via email.

For elimination of confusion, please state both the setting you would like changed, and the new desired value.

Thanks!

There is good news: I now only need one patch to have it function pretty flawlessly (no crashes). Unfortunately, there’s still a bit of an odd thing with some of the InnoDB mutex code (bug filed at some point soon).

But, with this one patch applied, I was getting okay sysbench results and things are …

In May we proposed deprecating and removing the old password format in MySQL 5.7. I am happy to report, that this proposal has gone ahead, and can already be seen in the 5.7 DMR5 release notes!

With old passwords removed, and with recent versions of MySQL also offering new options for authenticating to MySQL, today I wanted to write about three additional proposed changes that follow suit:
