Improvements and bug fixes introduced by Oracle for MySQL 8.0.33 and included in Percona Server for MySQL are the following:

  • The INSTALL COMPONENT includes the SET clause. The SET clause sets the values of component system variables when installing one or several components. This reduces the inconvenience and limitations associated with assigning variable values in other ways.

  • The mysqlbinlog --start-position accepts values up to 18446744073709551615. If the --read-from-remote-server or --read-from-remote-source option is used, the maximum is 4294967295. (Bug #77818, Bug #21498994)

  • Using a generated column with DEFAULT(col_name) to specify the default value for a named column is not allowed and throws an error message. (Bug #34463652, Bug #34369580)

  • Not all possible error states were reported during the binary log recovery process. (Bug #33658850)

  • User-defined collations are deprecated. The usage of the following user-defined collations causes a warning that is written to the log:

  • When COLLATE is followed by the name of a user-defined collation in an SQL statement.

  • When the name of a user-defined collation is used as the value of collation_server, collation_database, or collation_connection.

The support for user-defined collations will be removed in a future releases of MySQL.

New features

  • PS-8188: Adds the clone_exclude_plugins_list variable. By default, the list of installed plugins on the donor and recipient must match. The clone_exclude_plugins_list variable allows for specifying the list of plugin exceptions.

Bug fixes

  • PS-8647: tmp_table_size=51200 caused server exit.

  • PS-8683: Concurrent execution of FLUSH STATUS, COM_CHANGE_USER, and SELECT FROM I_S.PROCESSLIST led to deadlock. The deadlock affected connections executing the mentioned commands and other connections and made it impossible to shut down the server properly.

  • PS-8713: mysql_binlog_xxx() symbols were not exported in

  • PS-8719: Audit log plugin stalled on flush.

  • PS-8747: When Federated SE internal proxy-server connection timeout occured, Got an error writing communication packets was reported back to the user while the actual operation was successful.
