A release that includes MySQL Server 5.5.31 and 5.6.11.
New features include My Oracle Support (MOS) integration, and alternative web installers that download the selected MySQL products instead of bundling them.
Functionality Added or Changed
Web installers were added as an alternative to the full installers. These new installers will download the selected MySQL products instead of bundling them. Versions for both commercial and community editions of MySQL Server 5.5 and 5.6 are available.
My Oracle Support (MOS) is now integrated into MySQL Installer. You will now receive updates for your commercial MySQL products, and support tickets may now be submitted from within the MySQL Installer.
A successful return from the netsh command would not be recognized when creating firewall rules. The return code is now checked instead of validating against the string "Ok." (Bug #16338368)
Paths containing special escape characters, such as "\s", "\t", and "\n", would be interpreted and generate invalid paths. For example, "C:\servers\tor\56" would yield "C: ervers or\56". (Bug #16290041)
MySQL Installer would remove MySQL Server(s) with different licenses from the one you chose, although the data files were preserved. Instead of removing the old installation, MySQL Installer will now notify you and describe the required steps to continue on with the conversion.
Note that it is not possible to install both commercial and community editions of MySQL Server on a single host. One license type should be chosen and used, otherwise you must first migrate the license. (Bug #16266362)
After creating a user with a wildcard as the host, such as 'user'@'%', a user with the same username could not be created for a different host, such as 'user'@'localhost'. (Bug #16240656)
An installation failed when MySQL Server was not ready to accept
connections after the
MYSQL56 service was
started. An example scenario: if creating the databases required
too much time due to slow disks.
The 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Connector/C++ connector are now defined as mutually exclusive, when before it was possible to select both versions for installation. (Bug #13951621)
