For this release, there are 3 “Functionality Added or Changed” items, 1 “Security Fix”, and 36 other bug fixes.

Out of those other 36 bugs, 13 are InnoDB, 1 Partitioning, 3 Replication, and 19 misc. (including 3 potentially crashing bug fixes, and 1 performance-related fix) Here are the ones of note:

  • Functionality Added/Changed: Replication: When using a multi-threaded slave, each worker thread has its own queue of transactions to process. In previous MySQL versions, STOP SLAVE waited for all workers to process their entire queue.

MySQL 5.7.7 Overview and Highlights

MySQL 5.7.7 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.7, and is the first “RC” or “Release Candidate” release of 5.7), and is available for download here and here.

As for the fixes/changes, there are quite a few again, which is expected in an early RC release.

The main highlights for me were (though the enhancements, and potentially impactful changes, are definitely not limited to this list):

  • Optimizer Note: It is now possible to provide hints to the optimizer within individual SQL statements, which enables finer control over statement execution plans than can be achieved using the optimizer_switch system variable. Optimizer hints are specified as /*+ … */ comments following the SELECT, INSERT, REPLACE, …

As for the fixes/changes, there are quite a few (the official release was again split into 3 separate emails), which is expected in a “milestone” release.

The main highlights for me were (though the enhancements, and potentially impactful changes, are definitely not limited to this list):

  • Incompatible Change: The CREATE USER and ALTER USER statements have additional account-management capabilities. Together, they now can be used to fully establish or modify authentication, SSL, and resource-limit properties, as well as manage password expiration and account locking and …

  • InnoDB: The innodb_buffer_pool_size parameter is now dynamic, allowing you to resize the buffer pool without restarting the server. The resizing operation, which involves moving pages to a new location in memory, is performed chunks. Chunk size is configurable using the new …

MySQL 5.7.4 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.7, and is the “m14″ or “Milestone 14″ release), and is available for download here and here.

The 5.7.4 changelog begins with the following, so I felt it appropriate to include it here as well.

In Memoriam:

“This release is dedicated to the memory of two young engineers of the MySQL Engineering family, Astha and Akhila, whom we lost while they were in their early twenties. This is a small remembrance and a way to recognize your contribution to the 5.7 release. You will be missed.”
