The output of the ndb_mgm client
STATUScommands now indicates when the cluster is in single user mode. (Bug #27999)
In a cluster running in diskless mode and with arbitration disabled, the failure of a data node during an insert operation caused other data node to fail. (Bug #31980)
An insert or update with combined range and equality constraints failed when run against an
NDBtable with the error Got unknown error from NDB. An example of such a statement would be
UPDATE t1 SET b = 5 WHERE a IN (7,8) OR a >= 10;. (Bug #31874)
An error with an
sql/ha_ndbcluster.cccould potentially lead to an infinite loop in case of failure when working with
NDBtables. (Bug #31810)

Following an upgrade, ndb_mgmd failed with an ArbitrationError. (Bug #31690)

DELETEoperations after a data node had been shut down could lead to inconsistent data following a restart of the node. (Bug #26450)

NDBtables due to the use of unitialized data when checking for duplicate keys to be ignored. (Bug #25817)
