MySQL NDB Cluster 6.1 - 7.1 Release Notes  /  Changes in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1  /  Changes in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.4a (5.1.44-ndb-7.1.4a) (Not released)

Changes in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.4a (5.1.44-ndb-7.1.4a) (Not released)

This was intended as a replacement release for MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.4, fixing a critical issue in that version that was discovered shortly after its release (Bug #54242); however, MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.4a was not actually released due to Bug #54516 being found during testing. Users of MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.3 or MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.4 should upgrade to the 7.1.4b release as soon as possible.

Obtaining MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.  The latest MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1 binaries for supported platforms can be obtained from Source code for the latest MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1 release can be obtained from the same location. You can also access the MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1 development source tree at

This release also incorporates all bugfixes and changes made in previous MySQL Cluster releases, as well as all bugfixes and feature changes which were added in mainline MySQL 5.1 through MySQL 5.1.44 (see Changes in MySQL 5.1.44 (2010-02-04)).

Bugs Fixed

  • When using mysqldump to back up and restore schema information while using ndb_restore for restoring only the data, restoring to MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.4 from an older version failed on tables having columns with default values. This was because versions of MySQL Cluster prior to MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.4 did not have native support for default values.

    In addition, the MySQL Server supports TIMESTAMP columns having dynamic default values, such as DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP; however, the current implementation of NDB-native default values permits only a constant default value.

    To fix this issue, the manner in which NDB treats TIMESTAMP columns is reverted to its pre-NDB-7.1.4 behavior (obtaining the default value from mysqld rather than NDBCLUSTER) except where a TIMESTAMP column uses a constant default, as in the case of a column declared as TIMESTAMP DEFAULT 0 or TIMESTAMP DEFAULT 20100607174832. (Bug #54242)
