  •  New Features Added:
    • Precompiled UDFs for Maatkit (FNV and MurmurHash hash functions to provide faster checksums) are now included in distributions. Fixes feature request #689992. (Aleksandr Kuzminsky)
  •  Other Changes:

Bugs Fixed

  • Bug #643149 – Slow query log entries were not written in the usual parsing format. (Alexey Kopytov)
  • Bug #671764innochecksum wasn’t distributed with RPM and .DEB packages. (Aleksandr Kuzminsky)
  • Bug #673426 – Use of these system variables as command-line options could cause a crash or undefined behavior: log_slow_timestamp_every, log_slow_sp_statements, slow_query_log_microseconds_timestamp, use_global_long_query_time. (Oleg Tsarev)
  • Bug #673567 – Compiler could produce spurious warnings when building on non_Linux platforms. A check is now made to see if clock_gettime() is present in librt at the configure stage. If yes, -lrt is added to LIBS. (Alexey Kopytov)
  • Bug #673929 – Query cache misses were being reported for some queries when hits were actually occurring. (Oleg Tsarev)
  • Bug #676146 – The development environment test of log_slow_verbosity=innodb on a slave for row-based replication was not working correctly. (Oleg Tsarev)
  • Bug #676147, Bug #676148 – The development environment tests of options log_slow_slave_statements and use_global_long_query_time work only on statement-based replication. They were failing when row-based replication was attempted. A check is now made for the replication type to test. (Oleg Tsarev)
  • Bug #676158 – Setting the query cache size to 512M caused test failure on low memory systems. (Aleksandr Kuzminsky)
  • Bug #677407 – The innodb.innodb_information_schema test could fail sporadically due to flawed logic in the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.INNODB_LOCKS caching mechanism. (contributed by Kristian Nielsen) (Alexey Kopytov)
  • Bug #681486 – A dependency between Debian packages libmysqlclient16 and percona-server-common was removed. (Aleksandr Kuzminsky)
  • Bug #693415 – The test percona_innodb_buffer_pool_shm was failing. It should be run with the --big-test option. As the buffer pool size used in the test is 128M, the shared memory segment should be increased appropriately in order to run the test successfully. (Aleksandr Kuzminsky)
  • Bug #693814, Bug #693815, Bug #693816, Bug #693817, Bug #693819 – Tests in the test environment were updated to reflect past INFORMATION_SCHEMA changes. (Aleksandr Kuzminsky)
  • Bug #693818 – Warning and error messages for stored routines could incorrectly report row numbers due to a change in the slow_extended patch. (Alexey Kopytov)
