MySQL Utilities is now its own product, and is no longer a sub-product of MySQL Workbench.
This RC release is not available on Microsoft Windows.
Provisioning support was added to Fabric, by supporting the Nova Interface, which is responsible for managing compute instances to easily expand and shrink the number of servers in a group when MySQL Fabric is deployed within an OpenStack Cloud Provider. This introduces commands for the provider, machine, and snapshot groups.
Fabric now supports DATETIME and UTF-8 strings as sharding keys in range-based sharding.
The internal interface between the protocol classes and the Fabric core was improved to be more consistent.
Fabric now supports the MySQL Client-Server Protocol. Only connectors and clients supporting PROTOCOL41 and MULTI_RESULTSET are allowed. This preferred interface is an alternative to the current XML-RPC interface.
The specification and control files were updated to reflect the Connector/Python 2.0.0+ dependency. (Bug #19380554)
Added support for Connector/Python 2.0.0 and higher. (Bug #19215979)
The mysqlreplicate and mysqlrplms utilities would generate an exception when the optional
--rpl-userwas not passed in. (Bug #19178471)
The check for an errant transaction was not performed for mysqlrpladmin's switchover command, it only performed for the failover command. Both commands now check for errant transactions.
The errant transaction check requires all servers in the topology to have GTID enabled, otherwise a warning is issued indicating that the check cannot be performed for the switchover command. (Bug #19076488, Bug #73110)
When a login-path (or config-path) was used for server connection values, and the
.mylogin.cnffile was not found, an AttributeError was issued instead of a missing file error. (Bug #19009690)
On OS X Mavericks, the testing suite (MUT) failed to kill mysqld processes as MUT could not identify the MySQL server ports. (Bug #18958536)
On Windows, the mysqlfabric utility searched for the fabric configuration file outside of the installation folder.
The default configuration file location is
C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Utilities.
Additionally, the Start menu now contains a link to the fabric configuration file. (Bug #18904014)section in the Windows
With fabric, the
--daemonizeparameter was not recognized when passed in with
manage start. (Bug #18874603, Bug #72818)
In the mysqluc environment, pressing tab after typing a "q" would incorrectly suggest the term "qxit" instead of "quit". This now returns "quit", which is an alias for "exit". (Bug #18852960, Bug #72776)
On Linux, the backspace key was not functioning in the mysqluc environment, therefore the entered text could not be changed. (Bug #18852933, Bug #72777)
The Debian packages checked for a Connector/Python 1.0.9+ prerequisite instead of requiring Connector/Python 1.2.1+. (Bug #18838462)
Failed MySQL server connection error messages now return the actual error returned from the failed connection, instead of a custom (and more generic) error. This new behavior is more standard with how other MySQL client applications behave. (Bug #18815545, Bug #72670)
--discover-slaves-loginoption, if there were connection or configuration problems with some of the slaves, then those slaves were skipped with only a generic error message being issued. This behavior did not change when also passing in
A simple warning about the connection/configuration problems is now generated during the discovery process, and it references including
--verboseto see additional information. The
--verboseoption generates specific information for each slave, and includes their respective errors. (Bug #18815523, Bug #72706)
When running the mysqlserverinfo utility as root against an offline MySQL server, it failed to start a read-only instance of the server and emitted the fatal error "Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysqld as root!". This occurred because the mysqld option "--user=root" was not passed in, which is mandatory when starting mysqld as root. The
user_namethat executes the utility is now detected and added as
--user=when starting the read-only MySQL server.
Additionally, error checks were added that validate the
--datadiroptions to check for their existence and accessibility. (Bug #18790361, Bug #72658)
Descriptive text for the
--no-headersoption was improved to clearly indicate which formats it supports. For example, it does not support the "vertical" format. (Bug #18790134, Bug #72659)
The minimum required Connector/Python version in the source code was defined as 1.0.9 instead of 1.2.1. (Bug #18777318, Bug #72664)
When cloning a user, the mysqluserclone utility did not check if the user of the destination server had the required privileges for a successful operation. (Bug #18768780, Bug #72655)
The mysqluserclone utility was throwing an unhandled exception when the
--listoption was used with incorrect login credentials. The error message is now emitted. (Bug #18768487, Bug #72656)
The mysqluc utility would suddenly exit when a command was wrongly formatted, like when a closing quote was missing. This action now generates a warning instead of exiting from the console, which allows the command to be edited. (Bug #18730815, Bug #72569)
When passing in the
--dumpoption to the mysqluserclone utility on a user with the hostname '%', the output (each grant) would be printed twice. (Bug #18730720, Bug #72570)
Error messages for the mysqluserclone utility were improved by making them more explicit in terms of what might be missing. (Bug #18730656, Bug #72572)
sharding prune_shardoperations would hang when performed on a very large number of records. (Bug #18669231, Bug #19177860, Bug #73238)
The default value was removed from the
--rpl-useroption for the mysqlreplicate and mysqlrplms utilities. Before, the default user/pass value was "rpl:rpl". (Bug #18603715)
A warning is now emitted whenever a password is entered into the command line. When testing, this warning can be disabled by setting
self.mask_globalto false. (Bug #18603598)
The mysqlfailover utility caused excessive CPU load when executed in the console without passing in
--daemon. This high CPU usage was due to the process waiting for user input. (Bug #18379971, Bug #72002)
