Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0.25-15.1 includes all of the features and bug fixes available in Percona Server for MySQL. See the corresponding release notes for Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.25-15 for more details on these changes.

Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) supports critical business applications in your public, private, or hybrid cloud environment. Our free, open source, enterprise-grade solution includes the high availability and security features your business requires to meet your customer expectations and business goals.

Release Highlights

A Non-Blocking Operation method for online schema changes in Percona XtraDB Cluster. This mode is similar to the Total Order Isolation (TOI) mode, whereas a data definition language (DDL) statement (for example, ALTER) is executed on all nodes in sync. The difference is that in the NBO mode, the DDL statement acquires a metadata lock that locks the table or schema at a late stage of the operation, which is a more efficient locking strategy.

Note that the NBO mode is a Tech Preview feature. We do not recommend that you use this mode in a production environment. For more information, see Non-Blocking Operations (NBO) method for Online Scheme Upgrades (OSU).

The notable changes and bug fixes introduced by Oracle MySQL include the following:

  • The sql_slave_skip_counter variable only counts the events in the uncompressed transaction payloads.

  • A possible deadlock occurred when system variables, read by different clients, were being updated and the binary log file was rotated.

  • Sometimes the aggregate function results could return values from a previous statement when using a prepared SELECT statement with a WHERE clause that is always false.

For more information, see the MySQL 8.0.24 Release Notes and the MySQL 8.0.25 Release Notes.
