This is a milestone release, for use at your own risk. Significant development changes take place in milestone releases and you may encounter compatibility issues, such as data format changes that require attention in addition to the usual procedure of running mysql_upgrade. For example, you may find it necessary to dump your data with mysqldump before the upgrade and reload it afterward.
Condition Handler Changes
MySQL now supports the
DIAGNOSTICS provides applications a standardized way
to obtain information from the diagnostics area, such as whether
the previous SQL statement produced an exception and what it
was. For more information, see
GET DIAGNOSTICS Syntax.
In addition several deficiencies in condition handler processing rules were corrected so that MySQL behavior is more like standard SQL:
Block scope is used in determining which handler to select. Previously, a stored program was treated as having a single scope for handler selection.
Condition precedence is more accurately resolved.
Diagnostics area clearing has changed. Bug #55843 caused
handled conditions to be cleared from the diagnostics area
before activating the handler. This made condition
information unavailable within the handler. Now condition
information is available to the handler, which can inspect
it with the
statement. The condition information is cleared when the
handler exits, if it has not already been cleared during
Previously, handlers were activated as soon as a condition occurred. Now they are not activated until the statement in which the condition occurred finishes execution, at which point the most appropriate handler is chosen. This can make a difference for statements that raise multiple conditions, if a condition raised later during statement execution has higher precedence than an earlier condition and there are handlers in the same scope for both conditions. Previously, the handler for the first condition raised would be chosen, even if it had a lower precedence than other handlers. Now the handler for the condition with highest precedence is chosen, even if it is not the first condition raised by the statement.
Issues that caused server crashes resulting from incorrect handler call stack processing were fixed.
The work just described involved several condition-handler bug fixes:
RETURN statement did not
clear the diagnostics area as it should have. Now the
diagnostics area is cleared before executing
RETURN. This prevents a
condition in a nested function call from incorrectly
propagating to an outer scope. It also means there is no way
to return an SQL warning from a stored function. This change
is not backward compatible, but the resulting behavior is
more like standard SQL.
When an SQL
HANDLER was activated, the
handled condition was immediately removed from the
diagnostics area. Consequently, any SQL diagnostic statement
executed in the handler was unable to examine the condition
that triggered the handler.
If multiple handlers existed at the same level within a stored program, the wrong one could be chosen.
If an error occurred in a context where different handlers were present at different levels of nesting, an outer handler could be chosen rather than the innermost one.
For more information, see Scope Rules for Handlers. (Bug #12951117, Bug #38806, Bug #11749343, Bug #55852, Bug #11763171, Bug #61392, Bug #12652873, Bug #11660, Bug #11745196, Bug #48637, Bug #11756690)
Fractional Seconds Handling
MySQL now permits fractional seconds for
TIMESTAMP values, with up to
microseconds (6 digits) precision. To define a column that
includes a fractional seconds part, use the syntax
fsp is the fractional seconds
precision. For example:
CREATE TABLE t1 (t TIME(3), dt DATETIME(6));
fsp value, if given, must be in
the range 0 to 6. A value of 0 signifies that there is no
fractional part. If omitted, the default precision is 0. (This
differs from the standard SQL default of 6, for compatibility
with previous MySQL versions.)
The following items summarize the implications of this change. See also Fractional Seconds in Time Values.
TIMESTAMP columns, the
encoding and storage requirements in new tables differ from
such columns in tables created previously because these
types now include a fractional seconds part.
Due to changes to encoding and storage requirements for
TIMESTAMP types, importing
InnoDB tables that
TIMESTAMP types into MySQL
5.6.4 (or later) requires a workaround procedure which is
described in the “Server Changes” section of
Upgrading from MySQL 5.5 to 5.6 .
Syntax for temporal literals now produces temporal values:
', and the
ODBC-syntax equivalents. The resulting value includes a
trailing fractional seconds part if specified. Previously,
the temporal type keyword was ignored and these constructs
produced the string value. See
Standard SQL and ODBC Date and Time Literals
Functions that take temporal arguments accept values with fractional seconds. Return values from temporal functions include fractional seconds as appropriate.
ROUTINES, now have a
DATETIME_PRECISION column. Its value is
the fractional seconds precision for
TIMESTAMP columns, and
NULL for other data types.
The C API accommodates fractional seconds as follows:
MYSQL_FIELD column metadata
indicates the fractional seconds precision for
Clients can determine whether a result set temporal
column has a fractional seconds part by checking for a
decimals value in the
indicated the precision for numeric columns and was zero
MYSQL_TIME structure used for
the binary protocol, the
member indicates the microseconds part for
In some cases, previously accepted syntax may produce different results. The following items indicate where existing code may need to be changed to avoid problems:
Some expressions produce results that differ from previous
results. Examples: The
timestamp system variable
returns a value that includes a microseconds fractional part
rather than an integer value. Functions that return a result
that includes the current time (such as
UTC_TIMESTAMP()) interpret an
argument as an
fsp value and the
return value includes a fractional seconds part of that many
digits. Previously, these functions permitted an argument
but ignored it.
TIME values are converted to
DATETIME by adding the time
to the current date. (This means that the date part of the
result differs from the current date if the time value is
outside the range from
'23:59:59'.) Previously, conversion of
TIME values to
DATETIME was unreliable. See
Conversion Between Date and Time Types.
was permitted in old MySQL versions, but
N was a display width rather than
fractional seconds precision. Support for this behavior was
removed in MySQL 5.5.3, so applications that are reasonably
up to date should not be subject to this issue. Otherwise,
code must be rewritten.
There may be problems replicating from a master server that understands fractional seconds to an older slave that does not:
CREATE TABLE statements
containing columns that have an
fsp value greater than 0,
replication will fail due to parser errors.
Statements that use temporal data types with an
fsp value of 0 will work for
with statement-based logging but not row-based logging. In
the latter case, the data types have binary formats and
type codes on the master that differ from those on the
Some expression results will differ on master and slave.
For example, expressions that involve the
timestamp system variable or functions
that return the current time have different results, as

Performance Schema Notes
The Performance Schema has these additions:
The Performance Schema now permits instrument and consumer
configuration at server startup, which previously was
possible only at runtime using
UPDATE statements for the
setup_consumers tables. This
change was made because configuration at runtime is too late
to disable instruments that have already been initialized
during server startup. For example, the
wait/sync/mutex/sql/LOCK_open mutex is
initialized once during server startup, so attempts to
disable the corresponding instrument at runtime have no
To control an instrument at server startup, use an option of this form:
instrument_name is an
instrument name such as
value is one of these values:
0: Disable the instrument
1: Enable and time the instrument
counted: Enable and count (rather
than time) the instrument
option can specify only one instrument name, but multiple
instances of the option can be given to configure multiple
instruments. In addition, patterns are permitted in
instrument names to configure instruments that match the
pattern. To configure all condition synchronization
instruments as enabled and counted, use this option:
To disable all instruments, use this option:
Longer instrument name strings take precedence over shorter pattern names, regardless of order. For information about specifying patterns to select instruments, see Naming Instruments or Consumers for Filtering Operations.
An unrecognized instrument name is ignored. It is possible that a plugin installed later may create the instrument, at which time the name is recognized and configured.
To control a consumer at server startup, use an option of this form:
consumer_name is a consumer
name such as
value is one of these values:
0: Do not collect events for the
1: Collect events for the consumer
For example, to enable the
events_waits_history consumer, use this
The permitted consumer names can be found by examining the
setup_consumers table. Patterns
are not permitted.
Along with the preceding changes to permit configuration at server startup, the default instrument and consumer configuration has changed. Previously, all instruments and consumers were enabled by default. Now, instruments are disabled except the statement, I/O, and idle instruments. Consumers are disabled except the global, thread, and current-statement consumers. These changes produce a default configuration with a low overhead.
Tables that have an
EVENT_ID column now
also have an
END_EVENT_ID column to
support determination of nested event relationships:
EVENT_ID is populated with the
thread current event counter when an event starts. In
NULL until the event ends, at which point
it is set to the new thread current event counter. This
permits the relationship “event B is included in event
A” to be determined using the following expression,
without having to follow each inclusion relationship using
A.EVENT_ID <= B.EVENT_ID AND B.END_EVENT_ID <= A.END_EVENT_ID
The Performance Schema aggregates file I/O operations in two
tables and the
tables. It was possible to join the
table to the
EVENT_NAME column. However, it
was not possible to do the same with the
tables because the former uses
OBJECT_INSTANCE_BEGIN as the instance
identifier and the latter uses
This means that it was possible to obtain both file I/O
latency and usage per file, but not to correctly correlate
latency to usage when there was more than one form of file
(such as multiple redo logs, table files, and so forth).
To address this issue, the
now has an
In addition, both
additional aggregation columns (such as timer wait
information), which in many cases makes it possible to
obtain the desired summary information without need for a
join at all.

you must run mysql_upgrade (and restart the
server) to incorporate these changes into the

Error messages that referred only to an error code now also include the corresponding error description. (Bug #48348, Bug #11756433)
The MySQL code base was changed to permit use of the C++ Standard Library and to enable exceptions and runtime type information (RTTI). This change has the following implications:
Libraries and executables depend on some C++ standard
library. On Linux, this has not been the case previously. On
Solaris, the default dependency has changed from the default
libstlport, which is now
included with binary distributions for users whose system
does not have it.
-fno-exceptions options are no longer used
to build plugins, such as storage engines. Users who write
their own plugins should omit these options if they were
C++ users who compile from source should set
CXX to a C++ compiler rather than a C

than gcc. This includes the server as
well as client programs.

This fix improved the efficiency and concurrency of freeing
pages in the
InnoDB buffer pool when
DROP TABLE for an
InnoDB table when the
innodb_file_per_table option is
This change is most noticeable for systems with large buffer pools. During the drop operation, one traversal of the buffer pool memory structure is changed from the LRU list (the entire buffer pool) to the flush list (a much smaller structure). The LRU scanning is reduced, but not entirely eliminated. The buffer pool mutex is also released periodically, so that if the drop operation takes significant time, other threads can proceed concurrently. (Bug #11759044, Bug #51325)
Incompatible Change; Replication:
The statements in the following list are now marked as unsafe
for statement-based replication. This is due to the fact that
each of these statements depends on the results of a
SELECT statement whose order
cannot always be determined. When using
STATEMENT logging mode, a warning is issued
in the binary log for any of these statements; when using
MIXED logging mode, the statement is logged
using the row-based format.
When upgrading, you should note the use of these statements in
your applications, keeping in mind that a statement that inserts
or replaces rows obtained from a
SELECT can take up many times as
much space in the binary log when logged using row-based format
than when only the statement itself is logged. Depending on the
number and size of the rows selected and inserted (or replaced)
by any such statements, the difference in size of the binary log
after the logging of these statements is switched from
statement-based to row-based can potentially be several orders
of magnitude. See Advantages and Disadvantages of Statement-Based and Row-Based Replication.
(Bug #11758262, Bug #50439)
Previously, “Aborted connection” errors were
written to the error log based on the session value of
log_warnings, which permitted
users with minimal privileges to cause many messages to be
written to the log unless restricted by the
MAX_CONNECTIONS_PER_HOUR resource limit. Now
this logging is based on the global
log_warnings variable. There
are no remaining uses of the session
log_warnings variable, so it
has been removed and the variable now has only a global value.

Important Change; InnoDB:
ALTER TABLE statement
failed for an
InnoDB table due to an error
code from an underlying file-renaming system call,
InnoDB could lose track of the
.ibd file for the table. This issue only
occurred when the
configuration option was enabled, and when the low-level error
persisted through thousands of retry attempts. In MySQL 5.1,
this issue applied to the InnoDB Plugin but not the built-in
InnoDB storage engine.
For example, if you encounter an error like the following:
mysql> alter table sb2 add column d2 int; ERROR 1025 (HY000): Error on rename of './sbtest/#sql-1eb9_1' to './sbtest/sb2' (errno: -1)

DUPLICATE KEY statements for
tables from concurrent threads could cause a
deadlock, particularly with
INSERT...ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE form.
The problem could also be triggered by issuing multiple
statements. The fix avoids deadlocks caused by the same row
being accessed by more than one transaction. Deadlocks could
still occur when multiple rows are inserted and updated
simultaneously by different transactions in inconsistent order;
those types of deadlocks require the standard error handling on
the application side, of re-trying the transaction.

When a statement containing a large number of rows to be applied
on a slave table that does not contain a primary key, a
considerable amount of time can be needed to find and change all
the rows that are to be changed. The current fix helps diagnose
this issue by printing a message to the error log if the
execution time for a given statement replicated using row-based
replication takes more than 60 seconds.
log_warnings must be greater
than 1 for this message to be printed to the error log.

--hexdump printed the last
row of the hex dump incorrectly, in two ways:

Replication: A replication master could send damaged events to slaves after the binary log disk on the master became full. To correct this issue, only complete events are now pushed by the master dump thread to the slave I/O thread.
