MySQL Installer Release Notes  /  Changes in MySQL Installer 1.4.0 (Not released)

Changes in MySQL Installer 1.4.0 (Not released)

This begins development of the 1.4.x branch, and it includes new features and bug fixes since the previous release. It is an internal release.

Functionality Added or Changed

  • A task can now be scheduled to automatically update the MySQL product catalog. (Bug #18490792, Bug #72171)

  • Non-GA products are now supported, as these pre-release versions can be installed and updated using the MySQL Installer. The MySQL product listing displays both GA and non-GA releases, and this listing filter is configurable.

Bugs Fixed

  • Sometimes the upgrade process would modify the installation path of the MySQL server. (Bug #19268803, Bug #67999)

  • Executing the installer from CLI would install MySQL for Visual Studio even when Visual Studio was not installed on the system. It now checks for this prerequisite. (Bug #19189529)

  • The Back and Next buttons did not function properly after the installation failed and Try Again was executed. Only Cancel functioned. (Bug #19189513)

  • Clicking ? on the dashboard now displays the MySQL Installer version number. (Bug #18329551, Bug #19143184, Bug #73166)

  • The commercial MySQL server 5.5.36 installation package listed a 5.5.35 option, but not one for 5.5.36. (Bug #18080058)

  • MySQL server 5.7.2 failed to upgrade to MySQL server 5.7.3. (Bug #17809787)

  • The MySQL Workbench installation now uses the minor version number in the installation path (e.g., 6.2) instead of the point release number (e.g., 6.2.1). (Bug #17759563)
