This is a bugfix release, fixing recently discovered bugs in the previous MySQL Cluster NDB 6.3 release.
MySQL Cluster NDB 6.3 no longer in development. MySQL Cluster NDB 6.3 is no longer being actively developed; if you are using a MySQL Cluster NDB 6.3 release, you should upgrade to the latest version of MySQL Cluster, which is available from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/cluster/ .
Obtaining MySQL Cluster NDB 6.3. You can download MySQL Cluster NDB 6.3.20 source code and binaries for supported platforms from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/cluster/.
This 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 5.1.30 (see Changes in MySQL 5.1.30 (2008-11-14, General Availability)).
Please refer to our bug database at http://bugs.mysql.com/ for more details about the individual bugs fixed in this version.
Cluster API: Two new
Ndb_cluster_connectionmethods have been added to help in diagnosing problems with NDB API client connections. The
get_latest_error()method tells whether or not the latest connection attempt succeeded; if the attempt failed,
get_latest_error_msg()provides an error message giving the reason.
If a transaction was aborted during the handling of a data node failure, this could lead to the later handling of an API node failure not being completed. (Bug #41214)
SHOW TABLESrepeatedly could cause
NDBCLUSTERtables to be dropped. (Bug #40854)
Statements of the form
UPDATE ... ORDER BY ... LIMITrun against
NDBCLUSTERtables failed to update all matching rows, or failed with the error Can't find record in '
table_name'. (Bug #40081)
Start phase reporting was inconsistent between the management client and the cluster log. (Bug #39667)
Status messages shown in the management client when restarting a management node were inappropriate and misleading. Now, when restarting a management node, the messages displayed are as follows, where
node_idis the management node's node ID:
Shutting down MGM node
node_idfor restart Node

Partitioning: A query on a user-partitioned table caused MySQL to crash, where the query had the following characteristics:
WHEREclause referenced an indexed column that was also in the partitioning key.
WHEREclause included a value found in the partition.
WHEREclause used the
<>operators to compare with the indexed column's value with a constant.
The query used an
ORDER BYclause, and the same indexed column was used in the
ORDER BYclause used an explicit or implicit
Two examples of such a query are given here, where
arepresents an indexed column used in the table's partitioning key:
SELECT * FROM
tableWHERE a <
constantORDER BY a;
SELECT * FROM
tableWHERE a <>
constantORDER BY a;
This bug was introduced in MySQL Cluster NDB 6.3.19. (Bug #40954)

Replication: Issuing the statement
CHANGE MASTER TO ... MASTER_HEARTBEAT_PERIOD =using a value for
periodoutside the permitted range caused the slave to crash. (Bug #39077)
Disk Data: This improves on a previous fix for this issue that was made in MySQL Cluster 6.3.8. (Bug #37116)
References: See also Bug #29186.
Cluster API: When creating a scan using an
NdbScanFilterobject, it was possible to specify conditions against a
BITcolumn, but the correct rows were not returned when the scan was executed.
As part of this fix, 4 new comparison operators have been implemented for use with scans on
For more information about these operators, see The NdbScanFilter::BinaryCondition Type.
