Announcing Planet MySQL: Meta
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A couple of months back, I wrote that we were looking to improve the quality of Planet MySQL. Today, I am very excited to share the results of this with the announcement of Planet MySQL: Meta.

What is Meta?

Meta is a new category of posts that appear on Planet MySQL, which is intended for posts that are more social and less technical in nature. That is to say that instead of all posts appearing in one central feed, blog authors will now be able to target their posts for either Planet MySQL or Planet MySQL: Meta.

Readers will also have a choice as to which categories of posts they would like to subscribe to:

Proposed changes to user management in MySQL 5.7
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

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:

  • Deprecate the PASSWORD() function

    As we already support multiple authentication methods (and may desire additional in the future), calling the PASSWORD() function to generate a password hash has a strange user experience.

    What I mean by this, is that PASSWORD() is

    SET GLOBAL sql_log_bin - We need your feedback!
    Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Jeremy Cole recently blogged about the feature SET GLOBAL sql_log_bin. In his blog post, Jeremy suggested that there is no strong use-case for this feature, and that it is too easy to run accidentally (i.e. SET GLOBAL instead of SET [SESSION]). The result of this incorrect usage is that slaves will drift out of sync from masters.

    We discussed Jeremy's request in the MySQL team, and we agree that the syntax should produce an error in MySQL 5.7. However, we have not yet determined which steps should be taken for MySQL 5.5 and MySQL 5.6. The two proposals we would like to float are:

  • The statement SET GLOBAL sql_log_bin=N produces a warning.
  • The statement SET GLOBAL sql_log_bin=N produces an error.

    MySQL 5.6.20 Community Release Notes
    Employee +5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Thank you to the MySQL Community, on behalf of the MySQL team @ Oracle. Your bug reports, testcases and patches have helped create a better MySQL 5.6.20.

    In particular:

    • Thank you to Jeremy Cole for reporting a case where InnoDB's redo log could become corrupt with externally stored blobs. Jeremy also provided a testcase to demonstrate the problem. Bug #69477.
    • Thank you to Ronald Bradford for identifying that MySQL would continue to operate even though the binary log could not be written. Our team picked up Ronald's blog post, and filed a bug in response. Bug #51014.
    • Thank you to Daniël van Eeden, Andrew Garner, Detlef Ulherr and Bjoern

    The InnoDB Team is looking for your feedback!
    Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Restarting production database servers with gigabytes of memory is difficult. It can lead to cold caches and other operational complexities.

    The InnoDB team is looking to make improvements so that restarting MySQL is required as little as possible. Please help them out by answering which configuration settings you are most eager to see made dynamic.

    Thanks!
