MySQL Installer Release Notes  /  Changes in MySQL Installer 1.4.27 (2018-08-22)

Changes in MySQL Installer 1.4.27 (2018-08-22)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • The license agreement is presented as the first screen if it is not accepted initially and MySQL Installer is restarted. (Bug #28215779)

  • Some links to the MySQL Reference Manual now resolve to the latest content. Use the version list when viewing the online manual to select an earlier version of the documentation. (Bug #28213923)

  • A user-defined URL now can be used to validate the internet connection required to perform certain installation tasks. For more information, see the Connectivity Settings option in Description of MySQL Installer Dashboard Elements. (Bug #28034580, Bug #90849)

  • All MySQL Installer screens and dialog boxes are accessible with keyboard navigation for people who cannot use a mouse or other pointer device.

Bugs Fixed

  • MySQL Installer removed the Windows Firewall rule associated with a previous configuration during the initial configuration of another server instance. This fix ensures that a rule is removed only for a reconfiguration operation when the old rule is replaced by a new rule, because the port was changed. (Bug #28442728)

  • Some default values were incorrectly calculated by the configuration-file templates, which generated warnings in the server error log when the server was started. (Bug #28220112, Bug #28220094)

  • The value entered for a named pipe was prefixed with mysql= when a server instance in the 8.0 release series was configured and then each time it was reconfigured. (Bug #28202010)

  • File paths entered for logs were not validated properly during the configuration of a server instance and later prevented the server from starting. With this fix, invalid paths now result in notifications and a new option to revert to the default server value for each log is available. (Bug #28070874)

  • Server samples and examples were incorrectly included with the Client Only setup type and could not be configured without a server instance. This fix eliminates the option to install them with the client setup. (Bug #27868147)

  • Deprecated server variables were not removed from the my.ini options file as expected when a server instance was upgraded. (Bug #27255968)

  • MySQL Installer stopped working during the upgrade operation. (Bug #26360452)
