New Features

TokuDB storage engine package has been updated to version 7.5.6.

Bugs Fixed

RPM pre-install script assumed that the PID file was always located in the datadir. If it was not, during installation, wrong assumption could be made if the server was running or not. Bug fixed #1201896.

SHOW GRANTS displayed only the privileges granted explicitly to the named account. Other effectively available privileges were not displayed. Fixed by implementing Extended SHOW GRANTS feature. Bug fixed #1354988 (upstream #53645).

InnoDB lock monitor output was printed even if it was not requested. Bug fixed #1418996.

The stored procedure key was made consistent with other keys in the Slow Query Log by replacing space with an underscore. Bug fixed #1419230.

Some --big-test MTR tests were failing for Percona Server for MySQL because they weren’t updated. Bug fixed #1419827.

Other bugs fixed: #1408232, #1385036, #1386363, and #1420303.
