Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7Percona announces the release of Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7.20-29.24 (PXC) on January 26, 2018. Binaries are available from the downloads section or our software repositories.

NOTE: Due to new package dependency,
Ubuntu/Debian users should use apt-get dist-upgrade, apt upgrade, or apt-get install percona-xtradb-cluster-57 to upgrade.

Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7.20-29.24 is now the current release, based on the following:

All Percona software is open source and free.

New Features

  • Percona XtraDB Cluster now supports Ubuntu 17.10 Artful Aardvark.
  • PXC-737: freezing gcache purge was implemented to facilitate node joining through IST, avoiding time-consuming SST process.
  • PXC-822: a usability improvement was made to error messages, the name of the configuration variable which caused the timeout was added to the message.
  • PXC-866: a new variable wsrep_last_applied, in addition towsrep_last_committed one, was introduced to clearly separate last committed and last applied transaction numbers.
  • PXC-868: on the Joiner, during SST, tmpdir variable under [sst] section can be used to specify temporary SST files storage different from the default datadir/.sst one.

Fixed Bugs

  • PXC-889: fixed an issue where a node with an invalid value for wsrep_provider  was allowed to start up and operate in standalone mode, which could lead to data inconsistency. The node will now abort in this case. Bug fixed #1728774.
  • PXC-806:  fixed an abort caused by an early read of the query_id, ensuring valid ids are assigned to subsequent transactions.
  • PXC-850:  ensured that a node, because of data inconsistency, isolates itself before leaving the cluster, thus allowing pending nodes to re-evaluate the quorum. Bug fixed #1704404.
  • PXC-867: wsrep_sst_rsync script was overwriting wsrep_debug configuration setting making it not to be taken into account.
  • PXC-873: fixed formatting issue in the error message appearing when SST is not possible due to a timeout. Bug fixed #17200094
  • PXC-874: PXC acting as async slave reported unhandled transaction errors, namely “Rolling back unfinished transaction”.
  • PXC-875: Fixed an issue where toggling wsrep_provider off and on failed to reset some internal variables and resulted in PXC logging an “Unsupported protocol downgrade” warning. Bug fixed #1379204.
  • PXC-877: fixed PXC hang caused by an internal deadlock.
  • PXC-878: thread failed to mark exit from the InnoDB server concurrency and therefore never got un-register in InnoDB concurrency system.
  • PXC-879: fixed a bug where a LOAD DATA commands used with GTIDs was executed on one node, but the other nodes would receive less rows than the first one. Bug fixed #1741818.
  • PXC-880: insert to table without primary key was possible with insertable view if pxc_strict_mode variable was set to ENFORCING . Bug fixed #1722493.
  • PXC-883: Fixed ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT incorrect operation on slaves by avoiding useless wsrep plugin register for a savepoint rollback. Bug fixed #1700593.
  • PXC-885: fixed IST hang when keyring_file_data is set. Bug fixed #1728688.
  • PXC-887: gcache .page files were unnecessarily created due to an error in projecting gcache free size when configured to recover on restart.
  • PXC-895: fixed transaction loss after recovery by avoiding interruption of the binlog recovery based on wsrep saved position. Bug fixed #1734113.
  • PXC-897: fixed empty gtid_executed variable after recovering the position of a node with --wsrep_recover.
  • PXC-906: fixed certification failure in the case of a node restarting at the same time when frequent TRUNCATE TABLE commands and DML writes occur simultaneously on other nodes. Bug fixed #1737731.
  • PXC-909: qpress package was turned into a dependency from suggested/recommended one on Debian 9.
  • PXC-903 and PXC-910: init.d/systemctl scripts on Debian 9 were updated to avoid starting wsrep-recover if there was no crash, and to fix an infinite loop at mysqladmin ping fail because of nonexistent ping user.
  • PXC-915: suppressing DDL/TOI replication in case of sql_log_bin zero value didn’t work when DDL statement was modifying an existing table, resulting in an error.
