New Features:

Bugs Fixed:

  • If pid-file option wasn’t specified with the full path, Ubuntu/Debian sysvinit script wouldn’t notice if the server is actually running which would lead to timeout or in some cases even hang. Bug fixed #1549333.
  • Buffer pool may fail to remove dirty pages for a particular tablesspace from the flush list, as requested by, for example, DROP TABLE or TRUNCATE TABLE commands. This could lead to a crash. Bug fixed #1552673.
  • Audit Log Plugin worker thread may crash on write call writing fewer bytes than requested. Bug fixed #1552682 (upstream #80606).
  • Percona Server 5.7 systemd script now takes the last option specified in my.cnf if the same option is specified multiple times. Previously it would try to take all values which would break the script and server would fail to start. Bug fixed #1554976.
  • mysqldumpslow script has been removed because it was not compatible with Percona Server extended slow query log format. Please use pt-query-digest from Percona Toolkit instead. Bug fixed #856910.

Other bugs fixed: #1521120, #1549301 (upstream #80496), and #1554043 (upstream #80607).
