MySQL 5.6 Release Notes  /  Changes in MySQL 5.6.50 (2020-10-19, General Availability)

Changes in MySQL 5.6.50 (2020-10-19, General Availability)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • LOCK TABLES privilege checking for views was improved. (Bug #31304432, WL #14092)

Bugs Fixed

  • InnoDB: In session started with START TRANSACTION WITH CONSISTENT SNAPSHOT, a range query returned a truncated result. The end range flag was not reset at the beginning of the index read resulting in an aborted read and missing rows. (Bug #30950714, Bug #98642)

    References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #23481444.

  • In bootstrapping mode, certain multiple-statement transactions could cause unexpected server behavior. (Bug #31650096)

  • Assigning CONCAT('') or CONCAT_WS('') to a variable set the variable to NULL, not the empty string. (Bug #31320716, Bug #99485, Bug #31413167, Bug #99722)

  • ORDER BY queries were not executed correctly when sort_buffer_size and max_sort_length were set to values which caused the internal limit on the maximum number of keys allowed per sort buffer to be set to 0. (Bug #30175483)

  • The internal method Field_tiny::pack() did not always perform bounds checking as expected. (Bug #29948029)

    References: See also: Bug #31591391.

  • A large number of nested arguments in full-text search query caused an error. (Bug #29929684)

  • An assertion could be raised when the SQL layer passed incorrect information to InnoDB about the type of operation to be performed on a temporary table. (Bug #22503696)
