WL#8927: Deprecate mysql_plugin in 5.7 and remove in 8.0
Affects: Server-8.0 — Status: Complete
The mysql_plugin utility does not seem to be in use, by customers, devs or support. We do, however, get some bug reports from internal testing, and the burden to maintain it is noticeable. With changes in 5.7, we are dependent on the deprecated --bootstrap option to make it work. In 8.0 this needs to be overhauled, if we want to bring the tool forward. Therefore, we will deprecate this utility in 5.7, and remove it in 8.0. User Documentation ================== For refman-5.7: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.7/en/news-5-7-11.html http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysql-plugin.html For refman-8.0, the mysql_plugin section is removed, so there is nothing to review.
