New option rewrite-db has been added to the mysqlbinlog utility that allows the changing names of the used databases in both Row-Based and Statement-Based replication. This was possible before by using tools like grep, awk and sed but only for SBR, because with RBR database name is encoded within the BINLOG ‘….’ statement.
