Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona Server 5.1.69-14.7 on June 10th, 2013 (Downloads are available from Percona Server 5.1.69-14.7 downloads and from the Percona Software Repositories).
Based on MySQL 5.1.69, this release will include all the bug fixes in it. All of Percona‘s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release can be found in the 5.1.69-14.7 milestone at Launchpad.
In Ubuntu Precise libmysqlclient18 package was chosen from the distribution’s repository instead of Percona’s which could lead to package conflicts. Bug fixed #1174271.
Fixed the RPM Percona-Server-shared-compat package naming issue that could lead to unresolved package dependencies when installing Percona Server 5.1. Bug fixed #893860.
If a slave was running with its binary log enabled and then restarted with the binary log disabled, Crash-Resistant Replication could overwrite the relay log info log with an incorrect position. Bug fixed #1092593.
The log tracker thread was unaware of the situation when the oldest untracked log records are overwritten by the new log data. In some corner cases this could lead to assertion errors in the log parser or bad changed page data. Bug fixed #1108613.
Fixed the RPM package dependencies for different major versions of Percona Server. Bug fixed #1167109.
Fixed the CVE-2012-5627 vulnerability, where an unprivileged MySQL account owner could perform brute-force password guessing attack on other accounts efficiently. This bug fix comes originally from MariaDB (see MDEV-3915). Bug fixed #1172090.
OpenSSL libraries were not found in 32-bit builds due to a typo. Bug fixed #1175447.
Incorrect schema definition for the User Statistics tables in INFORMATION_SCHEMA (CLIENT_STATISTICS, INDEX_STATISTICS, TABLE_STATISTICS, THREAD_STATISTICS, and USER_STATISTICS) led to the maximum counter values being limited to 32-bit signed integers. Fixed so that these values can be 64-bit unsigned integers now. Bug fixed #714925.
mysql_set_permission was failing on Debian due to missing libdbd-mysql-perl package. Fixed by adding the package dependency. Bug fixed #1003776.
Missing path separator between the directory and file name components in a bitmap file name could stop the server starting if the innodb_data_home_dir variable didn’t have the path separator at the end. Bug fixed #1181887.
Under very rare circumstances, deleting a zero-size bitmap file at the right moment would make server stop with an I/O error if changed page tracking is enabled. Bug fixed #1184517.
