Subject:MySQL Community Server 5.7.26 has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Server 5.7.26, a new version of the popular Open Source Database
Management System, has been released. MySQL 5.7.26 is recommended for
use on production systems.

For an overview of what's new in MySQL 5.7, please see

For information on installing MySQL 5.7.26 on new servers, please see
the MySQL installation documentation at

MySQL Server 5.7.26 is available in source and binary form for a number
of platforms from our download pages at

MySQL Server 5.7.26 is also available from our repository for Linux
platforms, go here for details: <>

Windows packages are available via the Installer for Windows or .ZIP
(no-install) packages for more advanced needs. The point and click
configuration wizards and all MySQL products are available in the
unified Installer for Windows:

5.7.26 also comes with a web installer as an alternative to the full

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

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

of MySQL 5.7.25. It may also be viewed online at



Changes in MySQL 5.7.26 (2019-04-25, General Availability)

    Beginning with MySQL 5.7.26, Oracle no longer provides binaries for
    SUSE 11.

      * Security Notes

      * Bugs Fixed

Security Notes

      * The linked OpenSSL library for the MySQL Commercial
        Server has been updated to version 1.0.2r. Issues
fixed in the
        new OpenSSL version are described at This change
        does not affect the Oracle-produced MySQL Community
build of
        MySQL Server, which uses the yaSSL library instead.

Bugs Fixed

      * Important Note: The libevent library included with the
        MySQL Server was upgraded to version 2.1.8. (Bug
#28207237, Bug
        #29041505, Bug #29055011)

      * InnoDB: Optimized InnoDB internal temporary tables did
        not support in-place UPDATE operations, which caused
the number
        of delete-marked records to increase
continuously.  The large
        number of delete-marked records could cause longer
than expected
        query execution times. (Bug #29207450)

      * InnoDB: The base column information for a generated
        column was not stored. (Bug #29021730)

      * InnoDB: Assertion code related to the innodb_flush_method
        O_DIRECT_NO_FSYNC setting was no longer valid due to
a recent
        modification to that setting. Assertion code was
revised. (Bug
        #29007731) References: See also: Bug #27309336.

      * InnoDB: Memory leaks discovered in the innochecksum
        utility were removed. (Bug #28917614, Bug #93164)

      * InnoDB: A DDL operation that followed a failed attempt to
        create an index on a virtual column resulted in an
        failure. (Bug #28825718)

      * InnoDB: A Linux AIO handler function failed to check if
        completed I/O events succeeded. Thanks to Wei Zhao
for the
        contribution. (Bug #27850600, Bug #90402)

      * InnoDB: A function called by a CREATE TABLE thread
        attempted to access a table object after it was
freed by a
        background thread.  Thanks to Yan Huang for the
patch. (Bug
        #27373959, Bug #89126)

      * InnoDB: Two sessions concurrently executing an INSERT ...
        ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE operation generated a
deadlock.  During
        partial rollback of a tuple, another session could
update it. The
        fix for this bug reverts fixes for Bug #11758237,
Bug #17604730,
        and Bug #20040791. (Bug #25966845)

      * InnoDB: When the method used to access a joined table was
        const, InnoDB attempted to unlock the matching row
        times. (Bug #20939184)

      * InnoDB: The INDEX_LENGTH value in
        INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES was not updated when
adding an index.
        (Bug #19811005)

      * Partitioning: An AUTO_INCREMENT key added to a
        partitioned table by an ALTER TABLE statement using
        ALGORITHM=INPLACE restarted on each partition. (Bug
#92241, Bug

      * Replication: If the WAIT_FOR_EXECUTED_GTID_SET() function
        was used with a timeout value including a fractional
part (for
        example, 1.5), an error in the casting logic meant
that the
        timeout was rounded down to the nearest whole
second, and to zero
        for values less than 1 second (for example, 0.1).
The casting
        logic has now been corrected so that the timeout
value is applied
        as originally specified with no rounding. Thanks to
        Bussink for the contribution. (Bug #29324564, Bug

      * Replication: Depending on the value of
        group_replication_exit_state_action, the behavior of
        exiting a group was not consistent. To harmonize the
behavior of
        members exiting the group regardless of the error
scenario, now
        when a member with
        exits the group unintentionally, the super_read_only
mode that
        the member had when started is restored. This makes
the behavior
        consistent with that of a member with
(Bug #28971639,
        Bug #28526591)

      * Replication: Whenever you use
which is
        deprecated, a log message is added. (Bug #28971624)

      * Replication: On overloaded servers there was a
        possibility that when a member joined the group, the
        VIEW_CHANGE_LOG_EVENT event which marks that point
was not logged
        in the correct place. This could lead to errors in
the data
        transfer to the newly joining server and data
divergence. Now,
        the VIEW_CHANGE_LOG_EVENT event is logged in the
correct place in
        the binary log. In addition, warnings are logged
about the delay
        in logging the event. (Bug #28971594)

      * Replication: If an applier thread was stopped while it
        was in the process of opening a table, no error was
set, which
        could result in a segmentation fault or assertion
depending on
        the build type. Error handling is now correctly
activated in this
        situation. (Bug #28864557)

      * Replication: With GTIDs in use on the server, the master
        info log on a replication slave was being
synchronized every time
        the master skipped a transaction using the auto-skip
        The process ends with a dummy heartbeat which is
sent to the
        slave and caused a forced flush to the log, and this
could have a
        large cumulative impact on the write load on the
slave. The same
        issue could occur in a circular replication topology
with events
        that originated from the same server and were
therefore ignored,
        which were also handled by the slave with a forced
flush to the
        log. The slave handling code has now been changed to
remove the
        forced flush for heartbeat events and for ignored
events received
        through circular replication, so that the master
info log is only
        synchronized when appropriate (for example, when a
        statement is issued, or the binary log is rotated).
        #28815555, Bug #85158)

      * Replication: In a replication group configured in
        single-primary mode
        which is the default), if severe network delays
affected the
        group, it was possible for the primary and the
secondaries to
        reach different decisions on a transaction, which
could lead to
        divergence in the gtid_executed sets on the members.
The issue
        has now been fixed. (Bug #28768550, Bug #28966455,
Bug #92690)

      * Replication: GRANT statements that were written to the
        binary log were logged incorrectly in some cases,
which could
        result in a GRANT statement that executed
successfully on the
        master causing an error on the replication slave.
(Bug #28643405,
        Bug #29155451, Bug #93750)

      * Replication: If a storage engine has the capability to
        log in STATEMENT format but not in ROW format, when
        is set to STATEMENT, an unsafe SQL statement should
be logged and
        a warning message should be written to the error
log. However,
        such statements were instead not executed and an
error message
        was written to the error log, which is the correct
behavior when
        binlog_format is set to MIXED or ROW. The issue has
now been
        corrected so that unsafe statements are logged with
a warning as
        expected when binlog_format is set to STATEMENT.
(Bug #28429993,
        Bug #73936)

      * Microsoft Windows: Validity testing for the
        named_pipe_full_access_group system variable did not
account for
        NULL values. (Bug #29256690)

      * The authentication_ldap_simple plugin could enforce
        authentication incorrectly. (Bug #29637712)

      * On the Fedora 29 platform, the compat-openssl10-devel
        build dependency was changed to openssl-devel. (Bug

      * If CMake finds a libtirpc library that is too old to work
        with MySQL, it tries to use Sun RPC from glibc
instead.  (Bug

      * With the --users option, mysqlpump wrote CREATE USER and
        GRANT statements to the output, but too late to
apply to the
        other objects created by the dump. Consequently,
restoring the
        dump file created the user accounts too late to
apply to other
        objects created by the file.  mysqlpump now
writes user accounts
        to the dump file before other objects. (Bug

      * A damaged mysql.user table could cause a server exit.
        (Bug #28986737)

      * The CMake check for tirpc headers now falls back to using
        pkgconfig, to enable finding the headers on more
Linux platforms.
        This requires that pkgconfig be installed. 
(Bug #28970313, Bug
        #93341, Bug #28997093)

      * An attempt to access a null pointer could occur during
        prepared statement execution. (Bug #28692136)

      * The Aborted_connects status variable was not incremented
        for unsuccessful connection attempts, if connections
were managed
        by the thread_pool plugin. (Bug #28490126)

      * mysqladmin shutdown did not wait for mysqld to shut down.
        (Bug #28466137, Bug #91803) References: This issue
is a
        regression of: Bug #25364806.

      * Repeated invocations of stored procedures which executed
        queries undergoing short-circuit evaluation were not
        handled correctly. (Bug #28379655)

      * Keyring migration should require only read access to the
        source keyring, but failed unless the user had write
access. (Bug

      * If a user performing a keyring migration did not have
        write access to the keyring file, the migration
failed but
        reported success in its final error log message.
(Bug #28330922)

      * During FLUSH STATUS execution, the Performance Schema
        unnecessarily aggregated session status to global
status, causing
        double counts for some status variables. (Bug
#28291258, Bug

      * Some status variable values could temporarily increase
        before returning to their original value. (Bug
#27839644, Bug

        migrating keys from the keyring_file plugin to the
        keyring_encrypted_file plugin could make encrypted
        unusable. (Bug #27760952)

      * The binary file for the udf_example user-defined function
        was omitted from binary distributions. (Bug
#26115002, Bug

      * When the server was started with the --skip-name-resolve
        option, spurious warnings could be written to the
error log about
        ignoring accounts with a host name part of
localhost. (The
        accounts in fact were used and not ignored.) (Bug
#23329861, Bug

      * Installing and uninstalling a plugin concurrently with
        client connection activity could cause a server
exit.  (Bug

      * Some queries involving complex joins leaked file handles.
        (Bug #90902, Bug #28039829)
