Since January 2017, the MySQL Replication Team has been involved in processing many Community Contributions !
We are really happy to receive contributions (and not only in the replication team), but this also implies a lot of work from our engineers, as more than resolving a bug or developing a new feature, code contributions need to be analyzed, the code needs to be understood and validated.…
In order to improve observability and manageability of MySQL Group Replication (GR), we enhanced its instrumentation in MySQL 8.0.4. With these goals in mind, we have extended the usage of Performance Schema (P_S) from this plugin to the included Group Communication System (GCS) module as well as its submodule eXtended Communications (XCom) which are responsible for all communication involved in the dissemination of transactions to other MySQL instances.…
Since the release of Group Replication, one of its main security features is IP Address Whitelisting. This allows us to control whoever can send requests to enter in a group.
On MySQL version 8.0.4, we added a new possibility that it was lacking since the beginning: the ability to configure IP Address Whitelisting with hostnames.…

MCM 1.4.5 contains further stability and usability improvements of MySQL Cluster Manager.
The 1.4.5 release bundles MySQL Cluster 7.5.9. However, since MySQL Cluster 7.5.7, system tables contain sufficient information for MCM to properly support rolling reconfigurations when ndb_cluster_connection_pool is enabled for mysqlds.…
MySQL 8 second release candidate is out (MySQL 8.0.4). Besides fixes to replication issues we have also delivered a couple of enhancements in this release. Let me quickly summarize them.
- Additional instrumentation for Group Replication (WL#9856). We have instrumented mutexes and condition synchronization objects on the group communication library.
We have brought further enhancement to MySQL Group Replication 5.7 release by backporting some most requested features to MySQL 5.7.20 release:
- Member weight for automatic primary election on failover
- Disallow writes after leaving the group
And to MySQL 5.7.19 release:
- Transaction savepoint support
Member weight for automatic primary election on failover
The Member weight for automatic primary election on failover feature will allow user to influence primary member election using a integer member weight value.…
MySQL 8.0.3 release candidate is out with amazing new replication features, along with changes in couple of replication default options. Thanks to our users for their constant feedback and valuable inputs, MySQL is changing defaults whenever possible to remove configuration overhead for practical deployment of MySQL server.…
MySQL is not only a relational database, but can also be used as a schemaless/NOSQL document store, or a mix of both. This is realized by the JSON datatype, and is useful for any data that is hard to fit in the ”tabular” format of a traditional table.…
MySQL 8.0.1 introduced a work with replication threads mutexes in order to improve performance. In MySQL 8.0.2 the same work was extended, focusing in usability, and revamped how replication deals with disk-full conditions, improving the responsiveness of both monitoring commands and administrative commands such as
KILL, as well as making status messages much more precise and helpful.…
