Dear MySQL Users,

MySQL Cluster is the distributed, shared-nothing variant of MySQL.
This storage engine provides:

  - In-Memory storage - Real-time performance (with optional
    checkpointing to disk)
  - Transparent Auto-Sharding - Read & write scalability
  - Active-Active/Multi-Master geographic replication

  - 99.999% High Availability with no single point of failure
    and on-line maintenance
  - NoSQL and SQL APIs (including C++, Java, http, Memcached
    and JavaScript/Node.js)

MySQL Cluster 7.3.15, has been released and can be downloaded from

where you will also find Quick Start guides to help you get your
first MySQL Cluster database up and running.

The release notes are available from

MySQL Cluster enables users to meet the database challenges of next
generation web, cloud, and communications services with uncompromising
scalability, uptime and agility.

Enjoy !

Changes in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3.15 (5.6.34-ndb-7.3.15) (2016-10-18)

   MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3.15 is a new release of MySQL Cluster,
   based on MySQL Server 5.6 and including features from version
   7.3 of the NDB storage engine, as well as fixing a number of
   recently discovered bugs in previous MySQL Cluster releases.

   For an overview of changes made in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3, see

   This release also incorporates all bugfixes and changes made
   in previous MySQL Cluster releases, as well as all bugfixes
   and feature changes which were added in mainline MySQL 5.6
   through MySQL 5.6.34 (see Changes in MySQL 5.6.34

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * ClusterJ: To help applications handle database errors
       better, a number of new features have been added to the
       ClusterJDatastoreException class:

          + A new method, getCode(), returns code from the
            NdbError object.

          + A new method, getMysqlCode(), returns mysql_code
            from the NdbError object.

          + A new subclass,
            ClusterJDatastoreException.Classification, gives
            users the ability to decode the result from
            getClassification(). The method
            Classification.toString() gives the name of the
            error classification as listed in NDB Error
       (Bug #22353594)

   Bugs Fixed

     * Removed an invalid assertion to the effect that all
       cascading child scans are closed at the time API
       connection records are released following an abort of the
       main transaction. The assertion was invalid because
       closing of scans in such cases is by design asynchronous
       with respect to the main transaction, which means that
       subscans may well take some time to close after the main
       transaction is closed. (Bug #23709284)

     * A number of potential buffer overflow issues were found
       and fixed in the NDB codebase. (Bug #23152979)

     * When a data node has insufficient redo buffer during a
       system restart, it does not participate in the restart
       until after the other nodes have started. After this, it
       performs a takeover of its fragments from the nodes in
       its node group that have already started; during this
       time, the cluster is already running and user activity is
       possible, including DML and DDL operations.
       During a system restart, table creation is handled
       differently in the DIH kernel block than normally, as
       this creation actually consists of reloading table
       definition data from disk on the master node. Thus, DIH
       assumed that any table creation that occurred before all
       nodes had restarted must be related to the restart and
       thus always on the master node. However, during the
       takeover, table creation can occur on non-master nodes
       due to user activity; when this happened, the cluster
       underwent a forced shutdown.
       Now an extra check is made during system restarts to
       detect in such cases whether the executing node is the
       master node, and use that information to determine
       whether the table creation is part of the restart proper,
       or is taking place during a subsequent takeover. (Bug

     * Several object constructors and similar functions in the
       NDB codebase did not always perform sanity checks when
       creating new instances. These checks are now performed
       under such circumstances. (Bug #77408, Bug #21286722)

     * Cluster API: Reuse of transaction IDs could occur when
       Ndb objects were created and deleted concurrently. As
       part of this fix, the NDB API methods lock_ndb_objects()
       and unlock_ndb_objects are now declared as const. (Bug
