WL#6984: Deprecate ENCODE()/DECODE() in 5.7
Affects: Server-5.7 — Status: Complete
Since MySQL has the much more advanced AES_ENCRYPT()/AES_DECRYPT() we should move on and deprecate ENCODE()/DECODE() in favor of the AES variants. User Documentation ================== http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/encryption-functions.html
In mysql-trunk any execution of the ENCODE() or DECODE() function will trigger the following warning : Code : ER_WARN_DEPRECATED_SYNTAX (1287 currently) Message for encode : 'ENCODE' is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please use AES_ENCRYPT instead Message for decode : 'DECODE' is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please use AES_DECRYPT instead
