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 consider upgrading to MySQL Cluster NDB 6.2 or 6.3.
This Beta release incorporates all bugfixes and changes made in previous MySQL Cluster NDB 6.1 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.
Functionality Added or Changed
Incompatible Change; Cluster Replication:
The schema for the
ndb_apply_status table in
mysql system database has changed. When
upgrading to this release from a previous MySQL Cluster NDB 6.x
or mainline MySQL 5.1 release, you must drop the
mysql.ndb_apply_status table, then restart
the server for the table to be re-created with the new schema.
See MySQL Cluster Replication Schema and Tables, for additional information.
An infinite loop in an internal logging function could cause trace logs to fill up with Unknown Signal type error messages and thus grow to unreasonable sizes. (Bug #26720)
mysqld processes would sometimes crash under high load.
This fix was reverted in MySQL Cluster NDB 6.1.6.
Creating a table on one SQL node while in single user mode caused other SQL nodes to crash. (Bug #26997)
When creating a log file group, setting
INITIAL_SIZE to less than
