Galera Plugin version 4 Series

Galera plug-in 26.4.19 Release Notes, Release Date: 1 July 2024

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.18:

  • WSREP_KEY_SHARED key type is being phased out since it had insufficiently strict certification rules that may lead to certification test passes where it should fail. WSREP_KEY_REFERENCE fixes this, and all new writesets will be constructed using this. WSREP_KEY_SHARED is supported for backwards compatibility.
  • A memory leak in the commit cut action has been fixed.
  • Network level node isolation, which can help shut down all communication with the rest of the cluster to achieve a fail-silent crash.
  • GCS level protocol bumped, as error voting for joiner in the JOINED state was broken when group-wide commit cut (implied SUCCESS vote) was not taken into account when processing error vote requests from the JOINED node.

Galera plug-in 26.4.18 Release Notes, Release Date: 26 March 2024

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.17:

  • The garbd process hangs due to exceptions in the GCS layer not being caught within the receive loop, necessitating a forceful termination. Fixing this requires catching all exceptions within the loop, closing the connection first, and then continuing until a 'SELF-LEAVE' message ensures graceful exit.
  • When using SSL, crashes of garbd during graceful node shutdowns may occur, and result in the cluster becoming non-Primary; garbd now ignores the SIGPIPE signal to prevent this.
  • socket_ssl_compression is deprecated, now it isn't attempt to be set, and the user receives a warning if it was explicitly set.
  • Fixed commit cut tracking on node leave, and bumped GCS protocol version for backwards compatibility.
  • Executing the gcomm join process in the database server thread can lead to issues during allowlist callbacks, which should only be handled by Galera service threads. The gcomm join process is run within the gcomm service thread now.

Galera plug-in 26.4.17 Release Notes, Release Date: 8 January 2024

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.16:

  • "Zero-level" certification keys are implemented. Currently there are 3 levels of resource keys: schema, table, row, yet one common resource used by every writeset, a node. The key is added by default to every writeset with the default type WSREP_KEY_SHARED. Now, node-wide operations can be performed with the same semantics as regular transactions.
  • Non-SYNCED nodes are not counted when calculating commit cut - maximum seqno that is no longer needed in certification index; situations may arise when group commit cut is applied before all preceding events are committed on a non-SYNCED node, now drain all monitors to ensure that preceding events are committed.
  • Stability of node joining process for gmcast improved when new nodes are connecting concurrently as nodes previously may arrive at a different conclusion on which nodes will be blocked, however now, connections are explicitly allowed from all nodes which may be accepted as members in the next view.
  • Stability of node joining process for EVS improved by dropping EVS join messages without own identified in joining state, to avoid starting membership protocol before at least one of the existing nodes has seen at least one join message from a joiner.
  • Improve "Failed to report last committed" warning to make it more accurate and user-friendly.
  • Note that there is a new package signing key, 8DA84635

Galera plug-in 26.4.16 Release Notes, Release Date: 18 August 2023

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.15:

  • Removed out-of-order certification for BF aborted transactions.
  • Better error handling when the socket is closed, also cleaned up excessive debug logging.

Galera plug-in 26.4.15 Release Notes, Release Date: 16 June 2023

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.14:

  • An assertion is relaxed when Galera is configured with commit order disabled.
  • In certificate index preload, an assertion in handle_ist_trx_preload() fails if the first handled IST preload write set has failed certification, and incrementing the index position caused the certificate index to end up with the wrong position; now fixed by appending dummy writeset sequence numbers into Certification::trx_map_.
  • ASAN reported memory leak if gcs is closed after becoming joined but before reaching synced.

Galera plug-in 26.4.14 Release Notes, Release Date: 8 March 2023

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.13:

  • Memory leak in the gcs gcomm backend fixed (tp_ object deleted in GCommConn destructor).
  • protonet.backend option deprecated since it only supports one option, asio, and the option will be removed in future release. Related, protonet.version is also deprecated.
  • Deprecation message for socket.ssl_compression as SSL compression cannot be enabled and the option will be removed in future releases.
  • library could parse incorrect parameters as long as it had a "good" prefix, i.e. evs.*, so fix prevents setting of invalid option values
  • Parsing of ISO8601 durations previously accepted invalid values, now fixed.
  • in addition to ISO8601 format, parsing durations now supports real number representation.

Galera plug-in 26.4.13 Release Notes, Release Date: 24 November 2022

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.12:

  • Complete IO for client handshake before starting an asynchronous read to fix an occasional connection failure when establishing new cluster connections.
  • EOF-while-reading errors now suppressed when using OpenSSL 3.0.

Galera plug-in 26.4.12 Release Notes, Release Date: 16 May 2022

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.11:

  • WORK_DIR parameter added for garb.cnf and launch scripts to ensure Galera Arbitrator handles recovery files better (this includes command line option to specify working directory), fixing codership/galera#313
  • Fixes to renaming fc_master_slave to fc_single_primary
  • Catch local_endpoint() and remote_endpoint() exceptions, so they are not propagated to the stack, fixing a cluster crash and MDEV-25068
  • SSL options are explicitly initialised in garbd, fixing MDEV-28158
  • Compiles with old Boost versions, e.g. < 1.53.0

Galera plug-in 26.4.11 Release Notes

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.10:

  • Incremental State Transfer (IST) progress reporting via the event service interface has been implemented, and the GCache can report ring buffer recovery progress via the event service interface.
  • Library side allowlist functionality corresponding to MDEV-27246 was added.
  • Ring buffer has been enhanced to avoid segfaults if an invalid buffer leaks past the initial recovery scan. dump_map() method implemented for ring buffer to get more detailed debugging.
  • Join messages are always sent when not in JOINER state; this relaxed condition is required for the correct handling of the desync counter especially in the DONOR state. This fixes MDEV-27459.
  • To avoid printing garbage when logging certification conflicts, we stopped printing TrxHandleSlave state history, which is also mostly uninteresting since the state graph is linear. Fixes codership/galera#605 and codership/galera#606
  • For applications that do not track the provider side transaction lifetime accurately, we have a defensive mechanism to not attempt releasing the transaction for writeset handle with null opaque.
  • Library has had changes to allow it to be compiled as a CMake subproject.
  • Intermediate libraries are added as STATIC to allow cmake -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS:BOOL=ON to work correctly, fixing codership/galera#611.

Galera plug-in 26.4.10 Release Notes

Notable changes and fixes in Galera since latest release 4.9:

  • Error handling during IST failures was improved.
  • Provider option gcs.fc_master_slave was deprecated in favor of gcs.fc_single_primary.
  • OpenSSL library version has been updated to version 1.1.1l in binary tarball release.
  • Packages for Debian 11/Bullseye are now provided.

Galera plug-in 26.4.9 Release Notes

  • Applying of streaming replication write sets was made to respect applying order more reliably.
  • Too early transaction replay was fixed.
  • IST failure handling was improved to allow resuming IST after process restart.

Notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.28):

  • A bug in GCS where JOIN message was delivered even if the node was in DONOR state was fixed.
  • An issue where GCache could contain mixed histories from different clusters was fixed.
  • Setting socket.recv_buf_size was not effective because it was done after the socket was connected or accepted. Also the default value caused TCP receive buffer autotuning to be disabled. This lead to suboptimal performance in high bandwidth WAN clusters.
    The default value for socket.recv_buf_size was changed to 'auto' which lets the kernel to tune TCP receive buffer. A new variable socket.send_buf_size with default value auto was added to allow also send buffer tuning.
    (codership/galera#552)
  • GComm socket timestamping/liveness checking caused false positives during replication of large transactions, which caused excessive amounts of broken connections. (codership/galera#553)
  • Large transactions were able to monopolize bandwidth when segmentation was configured. This caused messages which were relayed by segment representative to be delayed. As a fix implemented fair queuing of messages. (codership/galera#553)
  • GComm EVS layer did excessive broadcasting to retransmit missing messages when packets were lost or delayed. The communication protocol was optimized to use point-to-point messaging to deliver missing messages and to rate limit retransmission requests. (codership/galera#554)
  • Because of a bug in quorum computation, two primary conflicting primary components were formed when the group merged and partitioned again while the new primary view was forming.
    (codership/galera#563)

Galera plug-in 25.3.28 Release Notes

Notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.27):


Galera plug-in 25.3.27 Release Notes

  • Prevent protocol downgrade on rolling upgrade (codership/galera#537)
  • Fixed GCache page store bus error on NVMFS

Galera plug-in 25.3.26 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.25):

  • Too early GCache page release in GCache page store was fixed.
  • A check for duplicate node UUID was added to prevent node to join the cluster if another node with the same UUID alrady exists (codership/galera#533).
  • Dynamic symbol dispatch was disabled in libgalera_smm.so to allow using the library with applications which may be built with different versions of C++ libraries than the Galera library.
  • Internal handling of IPv6 address square bracket notation and scope_id handling was fixed (codership/galera#519, codership/galera#534)

Galera plug-in 25.3.25 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.24):

  • A new Galera configuration parameter cert.optimistic_pa was added. If the parameter value is set to true, full parallellization in applying write sets is allowed as determined by certification algorithm. If set to false, no more parallellism is allowed in applying than seen on the master.
  • Support for ECDH OpenSSL engines on CentOS 6 (codership/galera#520)
  • Fixed compilation on Debian testing and unstable (codership/galera#516, codership/galera#528)

Galera plug-in 25.3.24 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.23):

  • A support for new certification key type was added to allow more relaxed certification rules for foreign key references (codership/galera#491).
  • New status variables were added to display the number of open transactions and referenced client connections inside Galera provider (codership/galera#492).
  • GCache was sometimes cleared unnecessarily on startup if the recovered state had smaller sequence number than the highest found from GCache.
    Now only entries with sequence number higher than recovery point will be cleared (codership/galera#498).
  • Non-primary configuration is saved into grastate.dat only when if the node is in closing state (codership/galera#499).
  • Exception from GComm was not always handled properly resulting in Galera to remain in half closed state. This was fixed by propagating the error condition appropriately to upper layers (codership/galera#500).
  • A new status variable displaying the total weight of the cluster nodes was added (codership/galera#501).
  • The value of pc.weight did not reflect the actual effective value after setting it via wsrep_provider_options. This was fixed by making sure that the new value is taken into use before returning the control back to caller (codership/galera#505, MDEV-11959)
  • Use of ECHD algorithms with old OpenSSL versions was enabled (codership/galera#511).
  • Default port value is now used by garbd if the port is not explicitly given in cluster address (MDEV-15531).
  • Correct error handling for posix_fallocate().
  • Failed causal reads are retried during configuration changes.

Galera plug-in 25.3.23 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.22):

  • Write set serialization has been changed to use proper memory alignment in order to avoid crashes on platforms which do not allow unaligned memory access (codership/galera#445)

  • Reporting last committed write set fixed to respect commit ordering (MW-341)
  • GComm socket level error handling improved to avoid backend thread exit in case of unexpected input from ASIO IO service (GAL-518)
  • Race condition fixed in GComm message sending codepath (GAL-520)
  • Fix for EVS protocol stall due to exhausted send window setting. This bug could stall cluster messaging until the next keepalive was sent by some node, causing intermittent pauses in write set replication. (GAL-521)
  • Code changes to avoid name collisions with FreeBSD system headers (GAL-523)

Galera plug-in 25.3.21 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.20):

  • A bug in send monitor that could cause the node to stop replicating under heavy write load has been fixed. (GAL-495)
  • URI parsing has been improved for IPv6 addresses (GAL-501, GAL-338, codership/galera#338)
  • GCache recovery fixes (GAL-494, GAL-500)
  • IST progress is reported in the log (GAL-491)
  • Improved build time checks for ASIO version (GAL-510)

Galera plug-in 25.3.20 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.19):

  • Galera can now be compiled with OpenSSL 1.1.0 (GAL-445, codership/galera#407)
  • Included asio library would fail to compile with some compilers (GAL-445, codership/galera#407)

  • Compilation could fail if attempting to compile Galera with GCC 6 (GAL-484)
  • An scons option, deterministic_tests=1, is now available to disable non-deterministic Galera unit tests (GAL-470, codership/galera#432)

Galera plug-in 25.3.19 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.18):

  • A new wsrep provider option, gcache.recover, enables gcache to be recovered at restart. This allows the restarted node to serve IST to any other nodes that are also starting, which may speed up whole-cluster restarts.
  • An additional protection against restarting a cluster using a node that may not have all the transactions has been implemented. Unless a node was the last one to be shut down from the previous cluster, Galera will refuse to bootstrap from it until explicit action is taken by the operator.
  • Galera would refuse to start on PPC64EL (lp:1633226, GAL-418)
  • Galera would crash or enter an infinite loop in the asio library (GAL-416)
  • It was not possible to set pc.wait_prim and pc.wait_prim_timeout options using wsrep_provider_options (GAL-360, codership/galera#360)
  • For security reasons, SSLv2, SSLv3, TLS 1.0 will no longer be negotiated during SSL handshake (codership/galera#428)

Galera plug-in 25.3.18 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.17):

  • After a certain pattern of server restarts, an isolated node could stop attempting to reconnect to the cluster (GCF-890)
  • Galera would fail to compile with clang 3.8 (codership/galera#412)
  • The wsrep_desync_count variable could show a wrong value (GAL-401)

Galera plug-in 25.3.17 Release Notes

New features and notable fixes in Galera replication since last binary release by Codership (3.16):

  • A receive buffer size of 208K is now used for intra-node communications. This avoids a situation where the cluster could stall or split when using high-latency, low-bandwidth network links. A new option, socket.recv_buf_size can be used to control the size of the buffer.
  • Experimental support for Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial is now available.
  • A node could crash if an invalid value is used for gcs.max_packet_size (codership/galera#414)
  • A node could crash if the SHOW STATUS command is used (codership/galera#408)

  • Improved support for running garbd under systemd and other minor packaging improvements.

MySQL wsrep Server 8.0 Series

MySQL wsrep 8.0.37-26.19 Release Notes, Release Date: 1 July 2024

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.36-26.18:

  • running GRANT with wsrep_forced_binlog_format=ROW produced an unrecoverable binary log (binlog). Now wsrep_forced_binlog_format is only effective for DML operations, and is also marked as deprecated because binlog_format has been deprecated as of MySQL 8.0.34 (the only possible logging format is ROW, making this option redundant).
  • Support for table names with special characters.
  • Binlog coordinated wsrep recovery now improved.
  • Ported MDEV-29293 (MariaDB stuck on starting commit state (waiting on commit order critical section) Export), reorganising BF abort codepaths so that mutex locking cycles does not happen when accessing the victim THD from BF THD. This fixes the occasional stuck on starting commit state.
  • WSREP_SST_OPT_PORT unset variable check fixed.
  • the GRA log file was malformed due to missing Format_description_log_event; it is now easier to read with mysqlbinlog.
  • race condition in wsrep InnoDB watchdog fixed.
  • fix unexpected server abort after MDL conflict between RSU and local command
  • improve MDL conflict reporting by printing all lock types.
  • fix applying failures due to MDL deadlocks by making sure that appliers get higher priority compared to locally executing DDLs in MDL deadlock resolving.
  • Improve "BF applier failed to open_and_lock_tables" warning.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.36-26.18 Release Notes, Release Date: 30 April 2024

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.35-26.17:

  • Fix broken clone SST when port configuration variable is not explicitly set.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.36-26.17 Release Notes, Release Date: 26 March 2024

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.35-26.16:

  • Recovering the GTID in case log file contains non-text bytes have been fixed, ensuring --wsrep-recover option functions correctly.
  • CLONE SST has a few fixes: port settings from my.cnf read if not specified in wsrep_sst_address, it doesn't use client authentication credentials from my.cnf, it uses caching_sha2_password now for user creation for SST, no longer mysql_native_password, and there are better diagnostic messages when used with SSL.
  • More diagnostic functionality including adding transaction sequence numbers and source IDs for ignored errors, and logging of event of row-based replication buffer file creation. Skipping doublewrite recovery is only printed when wsrep_debug is set.
  • Standardized TOI error voting in Galera Cluster by using only MySQL error codes, addressing inconsistencies caused by locale differences and non-deterministic execution paths. This ensures uniform voting outcomes for TOI event failures. However, this can break backwards compatibility and opens up a possibility of a cluster split, so the server side wsrep protocol version is bumped to 7 in order to keep the old behaviour until the cluster is fully upgraded.
  • Resolved an issue where a combination of native deadlocks and BF aborts in stored procedures led to assertion failures. The solution skips wsrep BF abort error handling for sub-statements, ensuring error handling only post sub-statement execution.
  • Fixed an issue where autocommit SELECT FOR UPDATE queries, if BF aborted, could lead to inconsistencies and assertions within InnoDB.
  • Error handling for SELECT FOR UPDATE inside transaction.
  • wsrep_notify_status view should be passed down.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.35-26.16 Release Notes, Release Date: 8 January 2024

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.34-26.15:

  • During the joiner CLONE SST process, a temporary user is created and dropped, and this is added to the binary log by default and sets off the MySQL GTID; joiner process operations are now disabled from binlogging.
  • When using wsrep_notify_cmd, the script is now only called when Galera has already formed a view or when it is synced or the donor, preventing any untoward hangs.
  • SST user account management has changed. Now there is automatic creation of temporary accounts for SST, and the credentials are passed to the SST script via socket (not environment variables), and the user is deleted after the SST script returns as complete. If additional privilege grants are needed for a particular SST method, wsrep_sst_auth is still respected. This works for mysqldump, CLONE, xtrabackup.
  • INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST is deprecated, and now PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST is used instead, and one can find information on appliers and rollback threads via SELECT * FROM performance_schema.processlist WHERE NAME = 'thread/sql/wsrep_applier_thread'; or 'thread/sql/wsrep_rollback_thread'.
  • Foreign key constraint check retrying is implemented, as foreign key constraint checks may occasionally fail even though the constraints are not violated. The number of retries by default is 1, and can be controlled by the new system variable: wsrep_applier_FK_failure_retries.
  • Note that there is a new package signing key, 8DA84635.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.34-26.15 Release Notes, Release Date: 18 August 2023

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.33-26.14:

  • When the server as started with read-only=ON, the mode toggled off during concurrent load due to a race condition.
  • Condition to replay a transaction via autocommit retry is now based entirely on wsrep_conflict_state, not accessing the lex tree as it is not guaranteed to be in a well-formed state (not user visible, but notable as to how wsrep_retry_autocommit now works).
  • INFO-level wsrep messages are now logged with SYSTEM_LEVEL priority by default, as WSREP information level messages are crucial for debugging replication issues. New variable, wsrep_info_level introduced to allow changing the priority to INFORMATION_LEVEL if needed.
  • During CREATE TABLE AS SELECT, Galera will not support wsrep_forced_binlog_format=MIXED|STATEMENT, and it will result in ROW with a warning.
  • Fix an inconsistency caused by ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT.
  • Systemd multi-instance support fixed.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.33-26.14 Release Notes, Release Date: 16 June 2023

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.32-26.13:

  • When inside a stored function or trigger, the current statement transaction should not allow commit or rollback.
  • wsrep_start_position contains the wsrep GTID position, local seqno for asynchronous replication, server ID and server UUID all in one argument, slash-separated.
  • Nodes now use the same server UUID (generated on the seed node) to binlog events that don't go through wsrep; this makes histories comparable provided the user executes such operations in agreed order on all the nodes. Previously wsrep nodes kept generating their own individual server UUIDs. A new wsrep_sync_server_uuid configuration variable, if set to true, the node then respects server UUID received from the donor node; otherwise the node generates its own server UUID. This concerns binlog events not replicated via wsrep which continues to be logged with cluster UUID. Default is such that all nodes generate their own server UUIDs.
  • When needed, the datadir initialization is now fixed in the clone SST script.
  • Asynchronous parallel replication enforces the same commit order in replica as was in the replication source, by default, and is configurable by replica_preserve_commit_order; while parallel apply is configured by replica_parallel_workers=4 (the default). The replication worker now waits for asynchronous replication commit order of the replication source before calling for wsrep replication.
  • Fix server abort when the binary log is rotated upon reaching maximum size. This was caused by an optimization that skips blocking operations of compressing GTID set during storing them into the GTIDs table during the binlog rotation. Thus, we skip wsrep commit hooks execution for implicit internal transaction of storing GTIDs.
  • In some Linux distributions, xtrabackup installs plugins under lib64 as opposed to lib; now we search in both locations.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.32-26.13 Release Notes, Release Date: 6 April 2023

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.31-26.12:

  • All output from wsrep_diag.sql goes to the same output stream.
  • Better handling of SST scripts with ASan builds.
  • Memory leak around apply failure, ALTER TABLESPACE, fixed.
  • The wsrep patch works with lock order debug instrumentation.
  • Removed check for innodb_lock_schedule_algorithm as it does not exist in MySQL 8.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.31-26.12 Release Notes, Release Date: 8 March 2023

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.30-26.11:

  • mysqladmin now displays all status variables for wsrep, overriding the default upper limit to be read from the server.
  • A wsrep_diag.sql script contains useful diagnostics queries for troubleshooting wsrep related issues.
  • Better handling of Total Order Isolation, from mistakenly skipped replication to error reporting.
  • mysqld_bootstrap script handles interruptions.
  • Now have version_comment variable to display server version releases.
  • the wsrep position can be recovered even if wsrep is off.
  • New wsrep_mode APPLIER_IGNORE_MISSING_TABLE which enables the server to skip failures with table open at applying time, but only if the log event contains other tables that are open. This is the default setting now, improving multi-table updates involving triggers.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.30-26.11 Release Notes, Release Date: 24 November 2022

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.28-26.10:

  • OpenSSL 3.0 compatibility exists.
  • Audit log character set information asset fix, since the default character set changed from utf8 to utf8mb3.
  • New keyring_vault plugin for encryption.
  • CLONE SST cleanup when joiner is killed does not reserve the listen port any longer.
  • DDL XIDs now use the wsrep seqno.
  • innodb_wsrep_applier_lock_wait_timeout made read-write.
  • Deprecated wsrep_slave_UK_checks variable with the default set to ON.
  • Roles are replicated (CREATE ROLE/DROP ROLE).
  • Variable innodb_wsrep_applier_lock_wait_timeout is now dynamic.
  • In rare instances, fixed an inconsistency with an import operation where TRUNCATE is issued on a table having a Foreign Key constraint, while there is concurrent DML for the FK parent table.
  • Fix wsrep_recover crash when gtid_mode=ON.
  • Galera now truncates trailing strings and pads characters according to the collation rules for a given key column.

We have one word of warning to all users upgrading from a previous version that happen to use INSTANT ALTER. Users can check whether INSTANT ALTER is used by running:

SELECT NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.INNODB_TABLES WHERE TOTAL_ROW_VERSIONS > 0;

If tables with row versions are found, it is recommended to run OPTIMIZE TABLE for those tables before upgrading to 8.0.30.

Please refer to our release blog for more information.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.28-26.10 Release Notes, Release Date: 16 May 2022

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.27-26.9:

  • Progress reporting is implemented from the xtrabackup SST script. If pv is present, the SST stream is piped through pv.
  • Progress reporting for CLONE SST can be disabled if progress=none is set in [sst].
  • wsrep_sst_rsync has been refactored.
  • wsrep_sst_xtrabackupv2 now includes the PORT variable by default (4444).
  • Fixes a crash on shutdown after starting an XA transaction (MDEV-26575) and also disallows XA when Galera library is loaded (XA is not supported in the community release edition).
  • innodb_disallow_writes has been refactored to ensure that disk writes do not leak the MySQL data directory when node is in SST donor state.
  • Fixes a race condition in wsrep_sst_rsync by performing all disk I/O blocking before creating the tables_flushed file.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.27-26.9 Release Notes, Release Date: 14 February 2022

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.26-26.8:

  • Progress reporting is now supported from SST scripts.
    • total N: signals new SST stage and reports estimated total work
    • complete N: reports completed work in the current stage
  • Progress reporting is enabled for CLONE SST as well, as there is a dedicated monitoring process that periodically queries the performance_schema.events_stages_current table.
  • There is a new wsrep_recover utility script to simplify cluster recovery procedures that will determine the last committed GTID of a crashed or stopped node.
  • The xtrabackup-v2 SST script was fixed to handle XtraBackup --strict option, which is enabled by default as of 8.0.27. Specifically the --binlog-option was removed from the script.
  • REPAIR or OPTIMIZE<*code> commands do not acquire MDL locks on parent tables, so wsrep_append_fk_parent_table() is unnecessary for OPTIMIZE and REPAIR, fixing a crash on REPAIR VIEW that was created from an INFORMATION_SCHEMA table.
  • New variable innodb-wsrep-applier-lock-wait-timeout to configure the timeout in seconds after which the wsrep watchdog starts killing local transactions that are blocking the applier (0 disables the watchdog).
  • A wsrep transaction is started before appending the table level key to ensure that valid transaction ID is always available for Galera library.
  • WSREP related errors sent to COM_STMT_PREPARE commands.
  • Parallel apply improvements: CREATE TABLE .. LIKE is marked as unsafe and a transaction is marked as unsafe when it traverses into a cascade delete operation. This fixes MDEV-26803.
  • CREATE TABLE with FOREIGN KEY constraint failed to apply in parallel, now will get referenced tables appended as keys in the writeset. This fixes MDEV-27276.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.26-26.8 Release Notes, Release Date: 15 November 2021

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.25-26.7:

  • New wsrep_mode IGNORE_CASCADING_FK_DELETE_MISSING_ROW_ERROR was added to work around applying errors with cascading delete. This is a workaround for MySQL Bug 80821.
  • A rare deadlock between cluster configuration change and FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK was fixed.
  • Executing FLUSH TABLES is now allowed also when not in primary component.
  • A bug which caused streaming replication transaction to roll back locally but not in the cluster was fixed (MDEV-26707).
  • New SST configuration options donor-timeout and joiner-timeout were added.
  • MDL BF-BF conflict between ALTER and UPDATE was fixed. A certification key corresponding to MDL lock taken for table referenced by foreign key constraint is added to write set to make parallel applying dependencies correct.
  • Write set applying reliability was improved by introducing periodic check for long lock waits for applied write sets.
  • Terminology change: The use of 'master' and 'slave' was deprecated. The following system variables were renamed:
    • wsrep_slave_threads -> wsrep_applier_threads
    • wsrep_slave_FK_checks -> wsrep_applier_FK_checks
    • wsrep_slave_UK_checks -> wsrep_applier_UK_checks
    • wsrep_restart_slave -> wsrep_restart_replica
  • Packages for Debian 11/Bullseye are now provided.
  • OpenSSL library version has been updated to version 1.1.1l in binary tarball release.

XtraBackup compatibility:

  • Percona XtraBackup version 8.0.26-18.0 or higher is required to perform XtraBackup based SSTs.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.25-26.7 Release Notes, Release Date: 23 July 2021

Notable changes and fixes in MySQL-wsrep since the latest release 8.0.23-26.6:

  • Changing system variable wsrep_on value during multi statement transaction is not allowed (MDEV-25226).
  • SST scripts for rsync and xtrabackup-v2 SST methods now accept ssl-ca, ssl-cert and ssl-key configuration varibles either in [sst] or [mysqld] configuration section. The old variables tca, tcert and tkey are now deprecated but still accepted if they are present in [sst] section in the configuration file.
  • Binlog purging was disabled when the mysqld server was started with --wsrep-recover option (codership/mysql-wsrep#381).
  • Clone SST method reliability was improved.
  • Parallel applying of write sets to tables without primary key was disabled (MDEV-25551).
  • Both MDL and InnoDB locking was improved to handle cluster-wide conflicts more gracefully.
  • Parallel applying for Foreign Key parent delete was fixed to respect applying order.

XtraBackup compatibility:

  • Percona XtraBackup version 8.0.25-17.0 or higher is required to perform XtraBackup based SSTs.

Packaging:

  • A dependency to stunnel package was added as it is needed for rsync SST SSL support.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.23-26.6 Release Notes, Release Date: 7 April 2021

Notable fixes in Galera since latest release 3.32.

  • Recovery to wrong position after process was killed during IST was fixed (codership/galera#210).
  • OpenSSL version in binary tarball build was bumped to 1.1.1k.

Build fixes:


MySQL wsrep 8.0.22-26.5 Release Notes

Notable new features in MySQL-wsrep 8.0 since latest release 8.0.21-26.4.

  • A new SST method based on Clone plugin was added.
  • A new variable wsrep_mode was introduced to wsrep behavior. The first application of the variable is to allow ignoring native replication filter rules if configured with `replicate-do-db` (codership/mysql-wsrep#372).
  • Logging was improved to display the origin of wsrep-lib and Galera related messages. Log messages prefixed with `P` come from Galera library, messages prefixed with `L` come from wsrep-lib.

Notable fixes in MySQL-wsrep since latest release 8.0.21-26.4.

  • Load data failure with foreign keys was fixed (codership/mysql-wsrep#375).
  • PS protocol compatibility with MySQL-wsrep was improved.
  • FreeBSD compatibility for Xtrabackup v2 SST script was improved (codership/mysql-wsrep#379).
  • BF-BF conflicts between OPTIMIZE/REPAIR/ALTER TABLE and DML in precense of foreign key constraints were suppressed (MDEV-21577).
  • Due to regression in mysqld_safe script recovery step was skipped when starting MySQL server, causing full SST to be donated when IST should have taken place. This issue affected systems which do not use systemd. This has now been fixed.

MySQL wsrep 8.0.21-26.4 Release Notes

New features in MySQL-wsrep since latest release 8.0.19-26.3.

  • Audit log plugin was merged from Percona XTraDB Cluster.
