Subject:MySQL Community Server 5.6.25 has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Server 5.6.25, a new version of the popular Open Source
Database Management System, has been released. MySQL 5.6.25 is
recommended for use on production systems.

For an overview of what's new in MySQL 5.6, please see

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-nutshell.html

      Starting with 5.6.11, Microsoft Windows packages for MySQL 5.6
      are available both as a "full" installer and as a "web" installer.
      The full installer is significantly larger and comes bundled with
      the latest software releases available. This bundle makes it easy
      to download and configure a full server and development suite.

      The web installer doesn't come bundled with any actual products
      and instead relies on download-on-demand to fetch only the
      products you choose to install. This makes the initial download
      much smaller but increases install time as the individual products
      will need to be downloaded.

For information on installing MySQL 5.6.25 on new servers or upgrading
to MySQL 5.6.25 from previous MySQL releases, please see

   http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/installing.html

MySQL Server is available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our download pages at

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

Not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point in time, so if you
can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose
another download site.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes,
patches, etc:

Changes in MySQL 5.6.25  (2015-05-29)

Functionality Added or Changed

   * MySQL Enterprise Firewall operates on parser states and
     does not work well together with the query cache, which
     circumvents the parser. MySQL Enterprise Firewall now
     checks whether the query cache is enabled. If so, it
     displays a message that the query cache must be disabled
     and does not load. (Bug #20913616)

   * my_print_defaults now masks passwords. To display
     passwords in cleartext, use the new --show option. (Bug
     #19953365)

   * MySQL distributions now include an innodb_stress suite of
     test cases. Thanks to Mark Callaghan for the
     contribution. (Bug #76347, Bug #20717127)

Bugs Fixed

   * InnoDB; Partitioning: The CREATE_TIME column of the
     INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES table now shows the correct
     table creation time for partitioned InnoDB tables. The
     CREATE_TIME column of the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PARTITIONS
     table now shows the correct partition creation time for a
     partition of partitioned InnoDB tables.
     The UPDATE_TIME column of the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
     table now shows when a partitioned InnoDB table was last
     updated by an INSERT, DELETE, or UPDATE. The UPDATE_TIME
     column of the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PARTITIONS table now
     shows when a partition of a partitioned InnoDB table was
     last updated. (Bug #69990, Bug #17299181)

   * InnoDB: An assertion was raised on shutdown due to XA
     PREPARE transactions holding explicit locks. (Bug
     #20816223)

   * InnoDB: The strict_* forms of innodb_checksum_algorithm
     settings (strict_none, strict_innodb, and strict_crc32)
     caused the server to halt when a non-matching checksum
     was encountered, even if the non-matching checksum was
     valid. For example, with
     innodb_checksum_algorithm=strict_crc32, encountering a
     valid innodb checksum caused the server to halt. Instead
     of halting the server, a message is now printed to the
     error log and the page is accepted as valid if it matches
     an innodb, crc32 or none checksum. (Bug #20568464)

   * InnoDB: The memcached set command permitted a negative
     expire time value. Expire time is stored internally as an
     unsigned integer. A negative value would be converted to
     a large number and accepted. The maximum expire time
     value is now restricted to INT_MAX32 to prevent negative
     expire time values. (Bug #20478242, Bug #75790)

   * InnoDB: Removal of a foreign key object from the data
     dictionary cache during error handling caused the server
     to exit. (Bug #20442523)

   * InnoDB: SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS output showed negative
     reservation and signal count values due to a counter
     overflow error. (Bug #20417397)

   * InnoDB: Failure to check the status of a cursor
     transaction read-only option before reusing the cursor
     transaction for a write operation resulted in a server
     exit during a memcached workload. (Bug #20391552)

   * InnoDB: MDL locks taken by memcached clients caused a
     MySQL Enterprise Backup FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK
     operation to hang. (Bug #20275612)

   * InnoDB: Estimates that were too low for the size of merge
     chunks in the result sorting algorithm caused a server
     exit. (Bug #20049521)

   * InnoDB: For full-text searches, the optimizer could
     choose an index that does not produce correct relevancy
     rankings. (Bug #74686, Bug #19950568)

   * Partitioning: When creating a partitioned table, using a
     partition-level DATA DIRECTORY or INDEX DIRECTORY option
     value containing an excessive number of characters was
     handled incorrectly. (Bug #20809045)

   * Partitioning: Executing an ALTER TABLE on a partitioned
     table on which a write lock was in effect could cause
     subsequent SQL statements on this table to fail. (Bug
     #74288, Bug #74634, Bug #19784790, Bug #19918805)
     References: See also Bug #19856162, Bug #74451.

   * Replication: When binary logging was enabled, using
     stored functions and triggers resulting in a long running
     procedure that inserted many records caused the memory
     use to increase rapidly. This was due to memory being
     allocated per variable. The fix ensures that in such a
     situation, memory is allocated once and the same memory
     is reused. (Bug #75879, Bug #20531812)

   * Replication: If an error was encountered while adding a
     GTID to the received GTID set, the log lock was not being
     correctly released. This could cause a deadlock. (Bug
     #75781, Bug #20492319)

   * Replication: A slave running MySQL 5.6.24 or earlier
     could not connect to a master running MySQL 5.7.6 and
     later that had gtid_mode=OFF_PERMISSIVE or
     gtid_mode=ON_PERMISSIVE. The fix ensures that a slave
     running MySQL 5.6.25 and later can connect to such a
     master as long as the slave's gtid_mode is compatible. In
     other words, a slave running MySQL 5.6.25 and later which
     has gtid_mode=OFF can connect to a master running MySQL
     5.7.6 and later which has gtid_mode=OFF_PERMISSIVE, and a
     slave running MySQL 5.6.25 and later which has
     gtid_mode=ON can connect to a master running MySQL 5.7.6
     and later which has gtid_mode=ON_PERMISSIVE. Other
     combinations are incompatible. (Bug #75769, Bug
     #20471216)

   * Replication: If an error occurred when using a
     multi-threaded slave, issuing a CHANGE MASTER TO
     statement which resulted in an
     ER_MTS_CHANGE_MASTER_CANT_RUN_WITH_GAPS error, and then
     issuing RESET SLAVE, made it impossible to change master
     due to repeated ER_MTS_CHANGE_MASTER_CANT_RUN_WITH_GAPS
     errors. Running the debug version of mysqld caused an
     unexpected exit in this case. The fix ensures that the
     recovery process for multi-threaded slaves avoids this.
     (Bug #75574, Bug #20411374)

   * Replication: When using semisynchronous replication
     performance was degrading when the number of threads
     increased beyond a certain threshold. To improve
     performance, now only the thread which is committing is
     responsible for deleting the active transaction node. All
     other operations do not touch this active transaction
     list. (Bug #75570, Bug #20574628)

   * Replication: Using mysqlbinlog to process log events
     greater than 1.6GB failed with an out of memory error.
     This was caused by an internal error converting the
     length variable. The fix upgrades the length variable to
     avoid overflow in both encoding and decoding functions.
     (Bug #74734, Bug #20350989)

   * Replication: When master_info_repository=TABLE the
     receiver thread stores received event information in a
     table. The memory used in the process of updating the
     table was not being freed correctly and this could lead
     to an out of memory error. The fix ensures that after an
     event is flushed to the relay log file by a receiver
     thread, the memory used is freed. (Bug #72885, Bug
     #19390463, Bug #69848, Bug #20124342)

   * Replication: Using mysqlbinlog to replay a relay log
     which ended with GTID_LOG_EVENT could cause the following
     error:
     ERROR 1790 (HY000) @@SESSION.GTID_NEXT cannot be changed
     by a client that owns a GTID. The client owns UUID:GTID.
     Ownership is released on COMMIT or ROLLBACK.
     If a relay log rotate happens (either through a receiver
     thread restart or after issuing the ROTATE command)
     exactly after writing a GTID_LOG_EVENT, when replaying
     such a relay log's end ROTATE_EVENT, it was mistakenly
     identified as being inside a transaction, whereas the
     transaction was actually started after GTID_LOG_EVENT.
     This caused mysqlbinlog to append SET
     @@SESSION.GTID_NEXT='AUTOMATIC', resulting in two
     GTID_NEXT statements one after the other. The fix ensures
     that mysqlbinlog generates SET
     @@SESSION.GTID_NEXT='AUTOMATIC' only outside of a
     transaction and when there has not been a previous
     GTID_LOG_EVENT.
     Similarly, using mysqlbinlog to concatenate and replay a
     relay log which contained a partial GTID transaction
     caused the above error. A relay log can contain a partial
     GTID transaction when AUTO_POSITION is enabled if a
     receiver thread is restarted when it is in the middle of
     transferring a transaction from a master. On restart the
     slave retrieves the full transaction again. In this case,
     the first relay log contains a partial GTID transaction
     and the second relay log contains the full GTID
     transaction again. When using mysqlbinlog to concatenate
     such a relay log, the partial transaction was not being
     correctly detected and therefore a ROLLBACK was not being
     correctly generated. The fix identifies partial GTID
     transactions using the format description event of the
     second relay log, ensuring that a ROLLBACK is correctly
     added. (Bug #70711, Bug #17650326)

   * For small values of the read_rnd_buffer_size system
     variable, internal caching of temporary results could
     fail and cause query execution failure. (Bug #20895852)

   * The normalize_statement() UDF used by MySQL Enterprise
     Firewall could cause a server exit for certain
     password-related statements. (Bug #20873209)

   * A failed FLUSH PRIVILEGES statement followed by
     statements to create or drop accounts could cause a
     server exit. (Bug #20857652)

   * std::stringstream code used by MySQL Enterprise Firewall
     could cause a server exit. (Bug #20848536)

   * SHOW VARIABLES mutexes were being locked twice, resulting
     in a server exit. (Bug #20788853)

   * ull2dec() was modified to avoid a problem with GCC 5 in
     optimized mode. (Bug #20768820)

   * Using GCC 5, debug builds failed due to compiler
     warnings. (Bug #20768717)

   * A Provides rule in RPM .spec files misspelled
     "mysql-embedded" as "mysql-emdedded". (Bug #20734434)

   * The mysql_firewall_max_query_size system variable should
     be read only at runtime, but it was possible to modify
     it. (Bug #20608993)

   * MySQL Enterprise Firewall could leak memory in the
     unlikely event of failure to store information in an
     INFORMATION_SCHEMA table. (Bug #20593257)

   * Using a MySQL 5.6 version of mysqladmin to change the
     password for an account on a MySQL 5.7.6 installation
     resulted in an unusable account password. (Bug #20590548)

   * AddressSanitizer compilation errors were silenced. (Bug
     #20459338, Bug #75740, Bug #20459363)

   * Under certain conditions, the libedit command-line
     library could write outside an array boundary and cause a
     client program crash. (Bug #20318154)

   * mysql_config_editor could exit abnormally while
     encrypting passwords. (Bug #20294225)

   * Host value matching for the grant tables could fail to
     use the most specific of values that contained wildcard
     characters. (Bug #20181776)

   * For MySQL distributions linked against yaSSL, a corrupt
     client key file could cause clients to exit. (Bug
     #20168526)

   * For join queries with a large number of tables, the
     server could exit converting the join to a semi-join.
     (Bug #20109861)

   * Deleting rows from mysql.user following by granting
     privileges to a new account could result in a server
     exit. (Bug #20031475)

   * Renaming the mysql.procs_priv table and executing SHOW
     GRANTS resulted in a server exit. (Bug #20006361)

   * Within a stored procedure, access to view columns after
     DDL or FLUSH TABLES statements in the procedure could
     cause a server exit. (Bug #19897405)

   * Execution of certain BINLOG statements while temporary
     tables were open by HANDLER statements could cause a
     server exit. (Bug #19894987)

   * For a prepared statement with an ORDER BY that refers by
     column number to a GROUP_CONCAT() expression that has an
     outer reference, repeated statement execution could cause
     a server exit. (Bug #19814337)

   * CMake configuration was adjusted to handle new warnings
     reported by Clang 3.5, using the
     -Wpointer-bool-conversion and -Wundefined-bool-conversion
     compiler options. (Bug #19584183)

   * Loading corrupt spatial data into a MyISAM table could
     cause the server to exit during index building. (Bug
     #19573096)

   * Specifying --general_log_file= (with an empty value) at
     server startup caused the server to fail and exit. (Bug
     #19392264)

   * CMake configuration was adjusted to handle warnings
     reported by Clang 3.3. (Bug #17486216)

   * Some MySQL Enterprise Firewall diagnostic messages were
     written outside the control of the log_error_verbosity
     system variable. (Bug #76612, Bug #20848331)

   * The server rejected empty COM_SHUTDOWN packets. (Bug
     #76552, Bug #20810928)
     References: This bug was introduced by Bug #14525642.

   * Inappropriate -Werror options could appear in
     mysql_config --cflags output. (Bug #76019, Bug #20590904)

   * In the Performance Schema threads table, the
     PROCESSLIST_STATE and PROCESSLIST_INFO values did not
     change for the thread/sql/main main thread instrument as
     the thread state changed. (Bug #74517, Bug #19887143)

   * Certain queries for the INFORMATION_SCHEMA TABLES and
     COLUMNS tables could lead to excessive memory use when
     there were large numbers of empty InnoDB tables. (Bug
     #72322, Bug #18592390)

   * Queries that included a HAVING clause based on
     nondeterministic functions could produce incorrect
     results. (Bug #69638, Bug #17055185)

   * For logging of prepared statements to the general query
     log, the Execute line was logged after statement
     execution, not before. (Bug #69453, Bug #16953758, Bug
     #20536590)

   * MySQL failed to compile using OpenSSL 0.9.8e. (Bug
     #68999, Bug #16861371)
