Querying INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PARTITIONS could cause key distribution statistics for partitioned tables to be reset to those corresponding to the last partition. Fixed the upstream bug #69179. Bug fixed #1192354.
Fixed the upstream bug #42415 that would cause UPDATE/DELETE statements with the LIMIT clause to be unsafe for Statement Based Replication even when ORDER BY primary key was present. Fixed by implementing an algorithm to do more elaborate analysis on the nature of the query to determine whether the query will cause uncertainty for replication or not. Bug fixed #1132194.
When an upgrade was performed between major versions (e.g. by uninstalling a 5.1 RPM and then installing a 5.5 one), mysql_install_db was still called on the existing data directory which lead to re-creation of the test database. Bug fixed #1169522.
