Making the case to support +2 version upgrades
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the MySQL team, we have always had a requirement to support upgrades from one major version. For example:

  • Upgrading from MySQL 5.5 to 5.6 is supported.
  • Upgrading from MySQL 5.1 to 5.6 is not supported.

Downgrades are also supported for one major version. For example, if a user upgrades to 5.6 but discovers that it is not working as expected, they have the safety knowing that there is a way to step back to MySQL 5.5. This may come with some limits; for example when new features (such as new row formats or page …

Plan to remove sql-bench from MySQL 5.7
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the MySQL team, we are planning to remove sql-bench from the MySQL 5.7 sources.

As the README file denotes, SQL Bench is a benchmark utility that supports MySQL 3.20 and 3.21, PostgreSQL 6.#, mSQL 2.# and Solid Server 2.2. It has not been well maintained for recent versions, and we are no longer using it internally as part of our testing process.

Our aim in making this change is to:

  • Improve the manageability of our git repository by …

Proposal to deprecate "compatibility" SQL Modes
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the MySQL team, we are currently discussing deprecating several of the SQL mode options which are used by mysqldump to change the output format. From the mysqldump command:

$ mysqldump --help
..
--compatible=name
 Change the dump to be compatible with a given mode. By
 default tables are dumped in a format optimized for
 MySQL. Legal modes are: ansi, mysql323, mysql40,
 postgresql, oracle, mssql, db2, maxdb, no_key_options,
 no_table_options, no_field_options. One can use several
 modes separated by commas. Note: Requires MySQL server
 version 4.1.0 or higher. This option is ignored with
 earlier server versions.

To explain the rationale …

MySQL Community Awards 2015: Call for Nominations!
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The 2015 MySQL Community Awards event will take place, as usual, in Santa Clara, during the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo, April 2015.

The MySQL Community Awards is a community based initiative. The idea is to publicly recognize contributors to the MySQL ecosystem. The entire process of discussing, voting and awarding is controlled by an independent group of community members, typically based of past winners or their representatives, as well as known contributors.

It is a self-appointed, self-declared, self-making-up-the-rules-as-it-goes committee. It is also very aware of the importance of the …

What defaults would you like to see changed in MySQL 5.7?
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

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!

Proposal to deprecate collation_database and character_set_database settings
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the MySQL team, we are currently discussing deprecating the ability to change the collation_database and character_set_database settings. As part of our plan, mysql clients will still be able to access these variables, but they will be read-only.

Introduction

The MySQL manual summarizes these two variables as saying:

This option is dynamic, but only the server should set this information. You should not set the value of this variable manually.

This …
