MySQL Installer Release Notes  /  Changes in MySQL Installer 1.1.6 (2013-02-05)

Changes in MySQL Installer 1.1.6 (2013-02-05)

A release that includes MySQL server 5.5.30 and 5.6.10.

Bugs Fixed

  • After upgrading from a MySQL Server 5.1 installation, the service for MySQL Server 5.1 was not deleted. (Bug #16238340)

  • User accounts could not be created using the domain\user layout due to improper escaping. (Bug #16223292)

  • A new validation routine was added that will report an error while attempting to create a user that already exists. Before MySQL Installer would silently fail. (Bug #16204038)

  • Passing in the "--product=*" option to the MySQL Installer Console would not function when used to remove products with the "--action=remove" option. (Bug #15860256)

  • A Migrate 5.5 data to 5.6 Server with Workbench option was added. If MySQL Server 5.5 data is present, and MySQL Server 5.6 is being installed, then it will be selected by default. If it and the Launch MySQL Workbench option are both selected, then completing the installation will load MySQL Workbench with the --migrate55to56 directive. This initiates a simplified database migration wizard in MySQL Workbench. (Bug #14834852)

  • mysql_upgrade.exe is now automatically executed after performing a MySQL Server upgrade. (Bug #14834832)

  • Certain characters were not allowed for the user passwords, such as the string "',.pyf". (Bug #13702313)
