Release highlights

The following features are Generally Available (GA):

The following features, variables, or options are available only in tech preview:

Improvements and bug fixes introduced by Oracle for MySQL 8.0.30 and included in Percona Server for MySQL are the following:

  • Supports Generated Invisible Primary Keys(GIPK). This feature automatically adds a primary key to InnoDB tables without a primary key. The generated key is always named my_row_id. The GIPK feature is not enabled by default. Enable the feature by setting sql_generate_invisible_primary_key to ON.

  • The InnoDB_doublewrite system has two new settings:

  • DETECT_ONLY. This setting allows only metadata to be written to the doublewrite buffer. Database page content is not written to the buffer. Recovery does not use the buffer to fix incomplete page writes. Use this setting only when you need to detect incomplete page writes.

  • DETECT_AND_RECOVER. This setting is equivalent to the current ON setting. The doublewrite buffer is enabled. Database page content is written to the buffer and the buffer is accessed to fix incomplete page writes during recovery.

  • The -skip_host_cache server option is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use SET GLOBAL host_cache_size= 0 or set host_cache_size = 0.

New features


Bug fixes

  • PS-8204: A fix for when the audit_log_format was set to XML and the logged queries were truncated after a newline character.

  • PS-8246: Adapted the Encryption UDF MTR test cases to OpenSL 3.0.x. The tests failed because OpenSSL 3.0.x has a different default set of hash functions and PEM reading and writing routines generate different error messages.

  • PS-8351: The SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS would output unreadable UTF characters.

  • PS-8364: When using Docker, the data directory for ICU regular expressions was missing.

  • PS-8175: While a thread executes fil_io_set_encryption(), another thread may change the space->encryption_type. If this happens, an assertion in fil_io_set_encryption() caused an unexpected server exit.

  • PS-8428: A fix for an unexpected server exit when --innodb_encrypt_online_alter_logs=ON and ALTER TABLE <tablename> ADD FULLTEXT was executed.

Platform support

  • Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.30 supports Oracle Linux/Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.

  • Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.30 supports Ubuntu 22.04.

Deprecation and removal
