Percona Distribution for MySQL 8.0.32 using Percona Server for MySQL (2023-03-20)¶
|Release date||March 20, 2023|
|Install instructions||Installing Percona Distribution for MySQL|
Percona Distribution for MySQL is the most stable, scalable, and secure open-source MySQL distribution, with two download options: one based on Percona Server for MySQL and one based on Percona XtraDB Cluster.
This release is focused on the Percona Server for MySQL-based deployment variation. It is based on Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.32-24.
Percona decided to revert the following MySQL bug fix:
The data and the GTIDs backed up by mysqldump were inconsistent when the options
--set-gtid-purged=ON were both used. It was because in between the transaction started by mysqldump and the fetching of
GTID_EXECUTED, GTIDs on the server could have increased already. With this fixed, a
FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK is performed before the fetching of
GTID_EXECUTED to ensure its value is consistent with the snapshot taken by
The current Percona decision also provides a solution for MySQL bug #33630199.
The Percona Server version of the
mysqldump utility, in some modes, can be used with MySQL Server. This utility provides a temporary workaround for the
additional RELOAD privilege limitation introduced by Oracle MySQL Server 8.0.32.
Improvements and bug fixes introduced by Oracle for MySQL 8.0.32 and included in Percona Server for MySQL are the following:
A replica can add a Generated Invisible Primary Keys(GIPK) to any InnoDB table. To achieve this behavior, the
GENERATEvalue is added as a possible value for the
CHANGE REPLICATION SOURCE TOstatement’s
REQUIRE_TABLE_PRIMARY_KEY_CHECK = GENERATEoption can be used on a per-channel basis.
sql_generate_invisible_primary_keyon the source is ignored by a replica because this variable is not replicated. This behavior is inherited from the previous releases.
An upgrade from 8.0.28 caused undetectable problems, such as server exit and corruption.
A fix for after an upgrade, all columns added with
ALGORITHM=INSTANTmaterialized and have version=0 for any new row inserted. Now, a column added with
ALGORITHM=INSTANTfails if the maximum possible size of a row exceeds the row size limit so that all new rows with materialized
ALGORITHM=INSTANTcolumns are within the row size limit. (Bug #34558510)
After a drop, adding a specific column using the
INSTANTalgorithm could cause a data error and a server exit. (Bug #34122122)
An online rebuild DDL no longer crashes after a column is added with
ALGORITHM=INSTANT. Thank you, Qingda Hu, for reporting this bug. (Bug #33788578, Bug #106279)
