Percona Server 5.1.52-12.3

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona Server 5.1.52-12.3 on December 13th, 2010 (Downloads are available here and from the Percona Software Repositories).

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Percona Server 5.1.52-12.3 is now based on MySQL 5.1.52.
  • New Features Added:
    • HandlerSocket plugin support has been added to all RPM and Debian packages. This is an experimental feature. (Inada Naoki, DeNA Co., Ltd.)
    • Lock-Free SHOW SLAVE STATUS - Allows examination of slave status even when a lock prevents SHOW SLAVE STATUS from operating. (Oleg Tsarev)
    • Fast Shutdown - Sleeping threads could cause a delay of up to 10 seconds during InnoDB shutdown. The sleeping state of threads was made interruptible to avoid this. (contributed by Kristian Nielsen) (Alexey Kopytov)
  • Other Changes: None

  • Bug #643463 - Shutting down XtraDB could take up to 10 seconds, even when there was no actual work to do. (Fix contributed by Kristian Nielsen) (Alexey Kopytov)
  • Bug #663757 - On the FreeBSD platform, the “gcc atomic built-in” function isn’t provided, so response_time_distribution now uses the native atomic API on FreeBSD. (Oleg Tsarev)
