The MySQL Server included in the MySQL HeatWave on AWS uses a versioning
system consisting of three numbers, an update version, and
-cloud suffix. For example:
First number: The major release number.
Second number: The minor release number. Taken together, the major and minor numbers constitute the release series number.
Third number: The version number within the release series. This is incremented for each new release.
uN : The MySQL Server-specific update number. Fixes and feature development for the cloud version of MySQL Server are delivered according to a different schedule than the on-premise version.
cloud: suffix indicating this version of MySQL Server was built for the cloud, only.
To retrieve the MySQL Server version number, connect to your
DB System using a MySQL client, and run
@@version;. The following example shows the
command and typical output:
mysql> SELECT @@version; +-----------------+ | @@version | +-----------------+ | 8.0.30-u1-cloud | +-----------------+
