MySQL 3.23.9 Changelog

End of Product Lifecycle. Active development and support for MySQL Database Server versions 3.23, 4.0, and 4.1 has ended. For details, see Please consider upgrading to a recent version. Further updates to the content of this manual will be minimal. All formats of this manual will continue to be available until 31 Dec 2010.

  • Fixed problem that affected queries that did arithmetic on group functions.

  • Fixed problem with timestamps and INSERT DELAYED.

  • Fixed that date_col BETWEEN const_date AND const_date works.

  • Fixed problem when only changing a 0 to NULL in a table with BLOB/TEXT columns.

  • Fixed bug in range optimizer when using many key parts and or on the middle key parts: WHERE K1=1 and K3=2 and (K2=2 and K4=4 or K2=3 and K4=5)

  • Added source command to mysql to allow reading of batch files inside the mysql client. Original patch by Matthew Vanecek.

  • Fixed critical problem with the WITH GRANT OPTION option.

  • Do not give an unnecessary GRANT error when using tables from many databases in the same query.

  • Added VIO wrapper (needed for SSL support; by Andrei Errapart and Tonu Samuel).

  • Fixed optimizer problem on SELECT when using many overlapping indexes. MySQL should now be able to choose keys even better when there are many keys to choose from.

  • Changed optimizer to prefer a range key instead of a ref key when the range key can uses more columns than the ref key (which only can use columns with =). For example, the following type of queries should now be faster: SELECT * from key_part_1=const and key_part_2 > const2

  • Fixed bug that a change of all VARCHAR columns to CHAR columns didn't change row type from dynamic to fixed.

  • Disabled floating-point exceptions for FreeBSD to fix core dump when doing SELECT FLOOR(POW(2,63)).

  • Renamed mysqld startup option from --delay-key-write to --delay-key-write-for-all-tables.

  • Added read-next-on-key to HEAP tables. This should fix all problems with HEAP tables when using non-UNIQUE keys.

  • Added option to print default arguments to all clients.

  • Added --log-slow-queries option to mysqld to log all queries that take a long time to a separate log file with a time indicating how long the query took.

  • Fixed core dump when doing WHERE key_col=RAND(...).

  • Fixed optimization bug in SELECT ... LEFT JOIN ... key_col IS NULL, when key_col could contain NULL values.

  • Fixed problem with 8-bit characters as separators in LOAD DATA INFILE.
