This is a bugfix release, fixing recently discovered bugs in the previous MySQL Cluster NDB 6.1 release.
MySQL Cluster NDB 6.1 no longer in development. MySQL Cluster NDB 6.1 (formerly known as “MySQL Cluster Carrier Grade Edition 6.1.x”) is no longer being developed or maintained; if you are using a MySQL Cluster NDB 6.1 release, you should upgrade to the latest version of MySQL Cluster, which is available from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/cluster/ .
This Beta release 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 5.1 through MySQL 5.1.15 (see Changes in MySQL 5.1.15 (2007-01-25)).
Please refer to our bug database at http://bugs.mysql.com/ for more details about the individual bugs fixed in this version.
--ndb-wait-connectedoption has been added for mysqld. When used, it causes mysqld wait a specified amount of time to be connected to the cluster before accepting client connections.
Cluster API: It is now possible to specify the transaction coordinator when starting a transaction. See Ndb::startTransaction(), for more information.
Using only the
--print_dataoption (and no other options) with ndb_restore caused ndb_restore to fail. (Bug #26741)
References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #14612.
An inadvertent use of unaligned data caused ndb_restore to fail on some 64-bit platforms, including Sparc and Itanium-2. (Bug #26739)
Assigning a node ID greater than 63 to an SQL node caused an out of bounds error in mysqld. It should now be possible to assign to SQL nodes node IDs up to 255. (Bug #26663)
