Release highlights

Improvements and bug fixes introduced by Oracle for MySQL 8.0.28 and included in Percona Server for MySQL are the following:

  • The ASCII shortcut for CHARACTER SET latin1 and UNICODE shortcut for CHARACTER SET ucs2 are deprecated and raise a warning to use CHARACTER SET instead. The shortcuts will be removed in a future version.

  • A stored function and a loadable function with the same name can share the same namespace. Add the schema name when invoking a stored function in the shared namespace. The server generates a warning when function names collide.

  • InnoDB supports ALTER TABLE ... RENAME COLUMN operations when using ALGORITHM=INSTANT.

  • The limit for innodb_open_files now includes temporary tablespace files. The temporary tablespace files were not counted in the innodb_open_files in previous versions.
