Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.37-25.10 is now available

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.37-25.10 on May 8, 2014. Binaries are available from the downloads area or from our software repositories.

Based on Percona Server 5.5.37-35.0 including all the bug fixes in it, Galera Replicator 2.10 (including fixes in 2.9 and 2.10 milestones) and on wsrep API 25.10 (including fixes in 25.10), Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.37-25.10 is now the current stable release. All of Percona‘s software is open-source and free.

New Features:

  • Percona XtraDB Cluster now supports stream compression/decompression with new xtrabackup-sst compressor/decompressor options.
  • Garbd init script and configuration files have been packaged for CentOS and Debian, in addition, in Debian garbd is packaged separately in percona-xtradb-cluster-garbd-2.x package.
  • New meta packages are now available in order to make the Percona XtraDB Cluster installation easier.
  • Debian/Ubuntu debug packages are now available for Galera and garbd.
  • New SST options have been implemented: inno-backup-opts, inno-apply-opts, inno-move-opts which pass options to backup, apply and move stages of innobackupex.
  • Initial configurable timeout, of 100 seconds, to receive a first packet via SST has been implemented, so that if donor dies somewhere in between, joiner doesn’t hang. Timeout can be configured with the sst-initial-timeout variable.
  • The joiner would wait and not fall back to choosing other potential donor nodes (not listed in wsrep_sst_donor) by their state. This happened even when comma was added at the end. This fixes it for that particular case.
  • Support for Query Cache has been implemented.
  • Percona XtraDB Cluster packages are now available for Ubuntu 14.04.

Bugs Fixed:

  • To avoid disabling Parallel Apply in case of SAVEPOINT or ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT the wsrep_cert_deps_distance was set to 1.0 at all times. Bug fixed #1277703.
  • First connection would hang after changing the wsrep_cluster_address variable. Bug fixed #1022250.
  • When gmcast.listen_addr variable was set manually it did not allow node’s own address in gcomm address list. Bug fixed #1099478.
  • wsrep_sst_rsync would silently fail on joiner when rsync server port was already taken. Bug fixed #1099783.
  • Server would segfault on INSERT DELAYED with wsrep_replicate_myisam set to 1 due to unchecked dereference of NULL pointer. Bug fixed #1165958.
  • When grastate.dat file was not getting zeroed appropriately it would lead to RBR error during the IST. Bug fixed #1180791.
  • Due to the Provides: line in Percona XtraDB Cluster (which provides Percona-Server-server), the command yum install Percona-Server-server would install Percona XtraDB Cluster instead of the expected Percona Server. Bug fixed #1201499.
  • Replication of partition tables without binlogging enabled failed, partition truncation didn’t work because of lack of TO isolation there. Bug fixed #1219605.
  • Exception during group merge after partitioning event has been fixed. Bug fixed #1232747.
  • Default value for binlog_format is now ROW. This is done so that Percona XtraDB Cluster is not started with wrong defaults leading to non-deterministic outcomes like crash. Bug fixed #1243228.
  • CREATE TABLE AS SELECT was not replicated, if the select result set was empty. Bug fixed #1246921.
  • INSERT would return deadlock instead of duplicate key on secondary unique key collision. Bug fixed #1255147.
  • Joiner node would not initialize storage engines if rsync was used for SST and the first view was non-primary. Bug fixed #1257341.
  • Table level lock conflict resolving was releasing the wrong lock. Bug fixed #1257678.
  • Resolved the perl dependencies needed for Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5. Bug fixed #1258563.
  • Obsolete dependencies have been removed from Percona XtraDB Cluster. Bug fixed #1259256.
  • GCache file allocation could fail if file size was a multiple of page size. Bug fixed #1259952.
  • Percona XtraDB Cluster didn’t validate the parameters of wsrep_provider_options when starting it up. Bug fixed #1260193.
  • Runtime checks have been added for dynamic variables which are Galera incompatible. Bug fixed #1262188.
  • Node would get stuck and required restart if DDL was performed after FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK. Bug fixed #1265656.
  • xtrabackup-v2 is now used as default SST method in wsrep_sst_method. Bug fixed #1268837.
  • FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK behavior on the same connection was changed to conform to MySQL behavior. Bug fixed #1269085.
  • Read-only detection has been added in clustercheck, which can be helpful during major upgrades (this is used by xinetd for HAProxy etc.) Bug fixed #1269469.
  • Binary log directory is now being cleanup as part of the XtraBackup SST. Bug fixed #1273368.
  • Deadlock would happen when NULL unique key was inserted. Workaround has been implemented to support NULL keys, by using the md5 sum of full row as key value. Bug fixed #1276424.
