MyISAM tables with
bulk_insert_buffer_size values larger than 256KB, the performance of bulk insert operations such as multiple-row
INSERT ... SELECT operations has been improved greatly when up to a hundred rows are inserted at the same time. (Bug #44723)
INSERT ... SELECT statement on an empty partition of a partitioned table failed with ERROR 1030 (HY000): Got error 124 from storage engine. This issue also caused queries run against a partitioned table while a
LOAD DATA CONCURRENT INFILE statement was in progress to fail with the same error. (Bug #46639)

Partitioning: A partitioned table having a
TIMESTAMP column with a default value of
CURRENT_TIMESTAMP and this column was not defined using an
ON UPDATE option, an
ALTER TABLE ... REORGANIZE PARTITION statement on the table caused the
TIMESTAMP column value to be set to
CURRENT_TIMESTAMP regardless. (Bug #46478)
Partitioning: Partition pruning did not always work correctly when the table's partitioning key used the
TO_DAYS() function. (Bug #46362)
Partitioning: Attempting to access a partitioned table when partitioning support was disabled in a MySQL server binary that had been compiled with partitioning support caused the server to crash. (Bug #39893)
Partitioning: The use of
TO_DAYS() in the partitioning expression led to selection failures when the column having the date value contained invalid dates. This occurred because the function returns
NULL in such cases, and the partition containing NULL values was pruned away. For example, this problem occurred if
'2001-02-00' was inserted into a
DATE column of such a table, and a subsequent query on this table used
date_col < '2001-02-00'
'2001-01-01' is less than
TO_DAYS('2001-02-00') evaluates as
NULL, and so the row containing
'2001-01-01' was not returned. Now, for tables using
LIST partitioning and having
TO_DAYS() in the partitioning expression, the
NULL partition is also scanned instead of being ignored.
The fix for this issue also corrects misbehavior such that a query of the form
SELECT * FROM on a table partitioned by
LIST was handled as though the server SQL mode included
ALLOW_INVALID_DATES even if this was not actually part of the server SQL mode at the time the query was issued. (Bug #20577)

Replication: Performing a multi-row update of the
AUTO_INCREMENT column of a transactional table could result in an inconsistency between master and slave when there was a trigger on the transactional table that updated a nontransactional table. When such an update failed on the master, no rows were updated on the master, but some rows could (erroneously) be updated on the slave. (Bug #46864)
Replication: When using the
--replicate-rewrite-db option and the database referenced by this option on the master was the current database when the connection to the slave was closed, any temporary tables existing in this database were not properly dropped. (Bug #46861)
Replication: When a statement that changed both transactional and nontransactional tables failed, the transactional changes were automatically rolled back on the master but the slave ignored the error and did not roll them back, thus leading to inconsistencies between master and slave.
This issue is fixed by automatically rolling back a statement that fails on the slave; however, the transaction is not rolled back unless a corresponding
ROLLBACK statement is found in the relay log file. (Bug #46130)
References: See also Bug #33864.
slave_transaction_retries is set, a statement that replicates, but is then rolled back due to a deadlock on the slave, should be retried. However, in certain cases, replication was stopped with error 1213 (Deadlock found when trying to get lock; try restarting transaction) instead, even when this variable was set. (Bug #45694)
Replication: The binary logging behavior (and thus, the replication behavior) of
CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS,
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS, and
CREATE EVENT IF NOT EXISTS was not consistent among these statements, nor with that of
DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS,
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS, and
DROP EVENT IF EXISTS: A
DROP ... IF EXISTS statement is always logged even if the database object named in the statement does not exist. However, of the
CREATE ... IF NOT EXISTS statements, only the
CREATE EVENT IF NOT EXISTS statement was logged when the database object named in the statement already existed.
CREATE ... IF NOT EXISTS statement is written to the binary log (and thus replicated), whether the database object named in the statement exists or not. For more information, see Replication of CREATE ... IF NOT EXISTS Statements.
Exception. Replication and logging of
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS ... SELECT continues to be handled according to existing rules. See Replication of CREATE TABLE ... SELECT Statements, for more information.
Replication: When using statement-based replication, database-level character sets were not always honored by the replication SQL thread. This could cause data inserted on the master using
LOAD DATA to be replicated using the wrong character set.
This was not an issue when using row-based replication.
Replication: In some cases, a
STOP SLAVE statement could cause the replication slave to crash. This issue was specific to MySQL on Windows or Macintosh platforms. (Bug #45238, Bug #45242, Bug #45243, Bug #46013, Bug #46014, Bug #46030)
References: See also Bug #40796.
Replication: Creating a scheduled event whose
DEFINER clause was either set to
CURRENT_USER or not set explicitly caused the master and the slave to become inconsistent. This issue stems from the fact that, in both cases, the
DEFINER is set to the
CURRENT_USER of the current thread. (On the master, the
CURRENT_USER is the mysqld user; on the slave, the
CURRENT_USER is empty.)
This behavior has been modified as follows:
CURRENT_USER is used as the
DEFINER, it is replaced with the value of
CURRENT_USER before the
CREATE EVENT statement is written to the binary log.
If the definer is not set explicitly, a
DEFINER clause using the value of
CURRENT_USER is added to the
CREATE EVENT statement before it is written to the binary log.

Replication: When using the statement-based logging format, the only possible safe combination of transactional and nontransactional statements within the same transaction is to perform any updates on nontransactional tables (such as
MyISAM tables) first, before updating any transactional tables (such as those using the
InnoDB storage engine). This is due to the fact that, although a modification made to a nontransactional table is immediately visible to other connections, the update is not immediately written to the binary log, which can lead to inconsistencies between master and slave. (Other combinations may hide a causal dependency, thus making it impossible to write statements updating nontransactional tables to the binary log in the correct order.)
However, in some cases, this situation was not handled properly, and the determination whether a given statement was safe or not under these conditions was not always correct. In particular, a multi-table update that affected both transactional and nontransactional tables or a statement modifying data in a nontransactional table having a trigger that operated on a transactional table (or the reverse) was not determined to be unsafe when it should have been.
With this fix, the following determinations regarding replication safety are made when combining updates to transactional and nontransactional tables within the same transaction in statement-based logging mode:
Any statement modifying data in a nontransactional table within a given transaction is considered safe if it is issued prior to any data modification statement accessing a transactional table within the same transaction.
A statement that updates transactional tables only is always considered safe.
A statement affecting both transactional and nontransactional tables within a transaction is always considered unsafe. It is not necessary that both tables be modified for this to be true; for example, a statement such as
INSERT INTO is also considered unsafe.
innodb_table SELECT * FROM
The current fix is valid only when using statement-based logging mode; we plan to address similar issues occurring when using the
ROW format in a future MySQL release.
Stack overflow checking did not account for the size of the structure stored in the heap. (Bug #46807)
The server could crash for queries with the following elements: 1. An “impossible where” in the outermost
SELECT; 2. An aggregate in the outermost
SELECT; 3. A correlated subquery with a
WHERE clause that includes an outer field reference as a top-level
WHERE sargable predicate; (Bug #46749)
CREATE TABLE ... SELECT could cause assertion failure if a table already existed with the same name and contained an
AUTO_INCREMENT column. (Bug #46616)
SHOW CREATE TRIGGER for a
MERGE table trigger caused an assertion failure. (Bug #46614)
In queries for which the loose index scan access method was chosen, using a condition of the form
col_name rather than the equivalent
caused an assertion failure. (Bug #46607)
col_name <> 0
TRUNCATE TABLE for a table that was opened with
HANDLER did not close the handler and left it in an inconsistent state that could lead to a server crash. Now
TRUNCATE TABLE for a table closes all open handlers for the table. (Bug #46456)
A query containing a subquery in the
FROM clause and
PROCEDURE ANALYSE() caused a server crash. (Bug #46184)
