Release Highlights

The following are a number of the notable fixes for MySQL 8.0.26, provided by Oracle, and included in this release:

  • The TLSv1 and TLSv1.1 connection protocols are deprecated.

  • Identifiers with specific terms, such as “master” or “slave” are deprecated and replaced. See the Functionality Added or Changed section in the 8.0.26 Release Notes for a list of updated identifiers. The following terms have been changed:

  • The identifier master is changed to source

  • The identifier slave is changed to replica

  • The identifier multithreaded slave (mts) is changed to multithreaded applier (mta)

  • When using semisynchronous replication, either the old version or the new version of system variables and status variables are available. You cannot have both versions installed on an instance. The old system variables are available when you use the old version, but the new ones are not. The new system variables are available when you use the new version, but the old values are not.

In an upgrade from an earlier version to 8.0.26, enable the rpl_semi_sync_source plugin and the rpl_semi_sync_replica plugin after the upgrade has been completed. Enabling these plugins before all of the nodes are upgraded may cause data inconsistency between the nodes.

For the source, the rpl_semi_sync_master plugin ( library) is the old version and the rpl_semi_sync_source plugin( library) is the new version.

For the client, the rpl_semi_sync_slave plugin ( library) is the old version and the rpl_semi_sync_replica plugin ( library) is the new version

For more information, see the MySQL 8.0.26 Release Notes.
