Changes in MySQL Utilities 1.5.3 (2014-11-04, General Availability)

Bugs Fixed

  • The MySQL Fabric installer failed to properly check for the required Connector/Python version. (Bug #19807933, Bug #74339)

  • Setting up a MySQL Fabric backing store would fail when the target MySQL instance used a unicode character set as the default. (Bug #19785686, Bug #74192)

  • The MySQLServer object created connections with "use_unicode=False", and as a consequence some statements returned fields in the bytearray format, as opposed to the expected strings or unicode fields. This unexpected field data type would sometimes cause problems with several modules, such as replication and high availability. (Bug #19774543, Bug #74255)

  • MySQL Fabric was improved to support AWS and Trove. Changes include no longer assuming that hosts have UUIDs, and plugin support was also added. (Bug #19589254)

  • The mysqldbcompare utility options related to comparing all databases on two servers were accidentally removed (e.g., --all, --exclude, and --regexp in a previous release, and they have since been restored.

    Additionally, the error handling and validation routines were improved. (Bug #19430737, Bug #73551)
