Changes in MySQL Connector/J 8.0.21 (2020-07-13, General Availability)

Version 8.0.21 is the latest General Availability release of the 8.0 series of MySQL Connector/J. It is suitable for use with MySQL Server versions 8.0, 5.7, and 5.6. It supports the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) 4.2 API, and implements the X DevAPI.

In the documentation for MySQL 8.0.21, we have started changing the term master to source, the term slave to replica, the term whitelist to allowlist, and the term blacklist to blocklist. There are currently no changes to the product's syntax, so these terms are still present in the documentation where the current code requires their use. See the blog post MySQL Terminology Updates for more information.
