Changes in MySQL Utilities 1.5.0 (2014-06-23, Alpha)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • All MySQL Utilities that connect to a MySQL server now support SSL certificates for creating a secure connection. Configured certificates can be set by the MySQL Configuration Utility (using mysql_config_editor to generate .mylogin.cnf), or from the following new MySQL Utility options:

    • --ssl-ca=file_name -- The path to a file that contains a list of trusted SSL CAs.

    • --ssl-cert=file_name -- The name of the SSL certificate file in PEM format to use for establishing a secure connection.

    • --ssl-key=file_name -- The name of the SSL key file in PEM format to use for establishing a secure connection.

    An error is emitted if attempts to use an SSL connection fails, when an option is missing, or if the provided files cannot be read.

Bugs Fixed

  • When running some MySQL Utilities using Python v2.6 (the minimum supported version), an import error was thrown because OrderedDict was used. The options_parser module used this collection, but OrderedDict was introduced in Python v2.7. To continue supporting Python v2.6, the OrderedDict dependency was removed from the module, and replaced with a regular dictionary. (Bug #18914270)

  • With Fabric, hash based shard mapping would return non-ASCII characters in the result. (Bug #17832848, Bug #71129)
