Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6.37-26.21

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6.37-26.21 on September 20, 2017. Binaries are available from the downloads section or from our software repositories.

Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6.37-26.21 is now the current release, based on the following:

All Percona software is open-source and free. Details of this release can be found in the 5.6.37-26.21 milestone on Launchpad.

Improvements

  • PXC-851: Added version compatibility check during SST with XtraBackup:
    • If donor is 5.6 and joiner is 5.7: A warning is printed to perform mysql_upgrade.
    • If donor is 5.7 and joiner is 5.6: An error is printed and SST is rejected.

Fixed Bugs

  • PXC-825: Fixed script for SST with XtraBackup (wsrep_sst_xtrabackup-v2) to include the --defaults-group-suffix when logging to syslog. For more information, see #1559498.
  • PXC-827: Fixed handling of different binlog names between donor and joiner nodes when GTID is enabled. For more information, see #1690398.
  • PXC-830: Rejected the RESET MASTER operation when wsrep provider is enabled and gtid_mode is set to ON. For more information, see #1249284.
  • PXC-833: Fixed connection failure handling during SST by making the donor retry connection to joiner every second for a maximum of 30 retries. For more information, see #1696273.
  • PXC-841: Added check to avoid replication of DDL if sql_log_bin is disabled. For more information, see #1706820.
  • PXC-853: Fixed cluster recovery by enabling wsrep_ready whenever nodes become PRIMARY.
  • PXC-862: Fixed script for SST with XtraBackup (wsrep_sst_xtrabackup-v2) to use the ssl-dhparams value from the configuration file.

Note

As part of fix for PXC-827, version communication was added to the SST protocol. As a result, newer version of PXC (as of 5.6.37 and later) cannot act as donor when joining an older version PXC node (prior to 5.6.37). It will work fine vice versa: old node can act as donor when joining nodes with new version.
