MySQL 5.6.17 Overview and Highlights
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.6.17 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.6, is GA), and is available for download here:

For this release, I counted 7 “Functionality Added” and/or “Incompatible Change” fixes:

  • Incompatible Change: The AES_ENCRYPT() and AES_DECRYPT() functions now permit control of the block encryption mode and take an optional initialization vector argument.
  • Incompatible Change: The ERROR_FOR_DIVISION_BY_ZERO, NO_ZERO_DATE, and NO_ZERO_IN_DATE SQL modes now are deprecated and setting the sql_mode value to include any of them generates a warning. In MySQL 5.7, these modes do nothing. Instead, their effects are included in the effects of

    MySQL 5.5.37 Overview and Highlights
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    MySQL 5.5.37 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.5, is GA), and is available for download here:

    http://downloads.skysql.com/archive/index/p/mysql/v/5.5.37

    This release, similar to the last 5.5 release, is mostly uneventful.

    There was one new feature added (Solaris-specific + obscure), and only 21 bugs fixed.

    The new feature is this:

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

    Out of the 21 bugs, most were benign, but there was one definitely worth mentioning (because it is a regression bug with performance degradation):

    • A regression introduced by Bug #14329288 would result in a performance degradation when a compressed table does not fit into memory. (Bug #18124788,

    MySQL 5.6.16 Overview and Highlights
    +6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    MySQL 5.6.16 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.6, is GA), and is available for download here:

    http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.6.html

    As opposed to the latest 5.5 release, this latest 5.6 release has quite a few more bug fixes, but that’s expected since 5.5 has been GA for much longer.

    There were 2 minor functionality changes:

    • Previously, ALTER TABLE in MySQL 5.6 could alter a table such that the result had temporal columns in both 5.5 and 5.6 format. Now ALTER TABLE upgrades old temporal columns to 5.6 format for ADD COLUMN, CHANGE COLUMN, MODIFY COLUMN, ADD INDEX, and FORCE operations. This conversion cannot be done using the INPLACE algorithm, so specifying ALGORITHM=INPLACE in these cases results in an error. (Bug #17246318)
    • CMake now supports a -DTMPDIR=dir_name

    MySQL 5.5.36 Overview and Highlights
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    MySQL 5.5.36 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.5, is GA), and is available for download here:

    http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.5.html

    I was reading through the changelogs to review the changes and fixes, and to summarize, I must say this release is mostly uneventful.

    There was one new feature added (for building, so not really applicable to everyone), and only 17 bugs fixed.

    The new feature is this:

    • CMake now supports a -DTMPDIR=dir_name option to specify the default tmpdir value. If unspecified, the value defaults to P_tmpdir in . Thanks to Honza Horak for the patch. (Bug #68338, Bug #16316074)

    Out of the 17 bugs, there was only 1 I thought worth mentioning (because it is a wrong results bug):

    • COUNT(DISTINCT) sometimes produced an incorrect result

    MySQL 5.0.96 is Now Available (for 5.0 Users)
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    This is just a post to let you 5.0 users know that 5.0.96 is now available.

    You may have read about some of the security bugs fixed in the recent 5.0.95, and now 5.0.96 is available (it’s been nearly 9 months since 5.0.94 was released – so this is quite a lot of activity as far as 5.0 is concerned).

    So if for some reason you’re still running MySQL 5.0, you should at least upgrade to the latest 5.0.96.

    The upgrade process should be smooth and simple if you’re already running 5.0 (just be safe and backup your data first though).

    You can download 5.0.96 from here:

    http://downloads.skysql.com/archive/index/p/mysql/v/5.0.96

    And if you’re interested in the 5.0 changelogs, I have direct links to them here (just look for MySQL 5.0):
