New Features
[]Percona Server can now be built with support of OpenSSL 1.1.
]Percona Server is now available on Debian 9 (stretch). The support only covers the amd64 architecture.
[]TokuDB enables to kill a query that is awaiting an FT locktree lock.
[/LIST]Bugs Fixed
]Row counts in TokuDB could be lost intermittently after restarts. Bug fixed #2.
[]In TokuDB, two races in the fractal tree lock manager could significantly affect transactional throughput for some applications that used a small number of concurrent transactions. These races manifested as transactions unnecessarily waiting for an available lock. Bug fixed #3.
]TokuDB could assert when opening a dictionary with no useful information to error log. Bug fixed #23.
[]TokuDB could assert for various reasons deserializing nodes with no useful error output. Bug fixed #24.
]Percona Server could crash when running a query over a partitioned table that uses an index to read a range of rows if this range was not covered by any existing partition. Bug fixed #1657941 (upstream #76418).
[]With two client connections to a server (debug server build), the server could crash after one of the clients set the global option userstat and flushed the client statistics (FLUSH CLIENT_STATISTICS) and then both clients were closed. Bug fixed #1661488.
]TokuDB did not pass cmake flags on to snappy cmake. Bug fixed #41. The progress status for partitioned TokuDB table ALTERs was misleading. Bug fixed #42.
[]When a client application connecting to the Aurora cluster end point using SSL (–ssl-verify-server-cert or --ssl-mode=VERIFY_IDENTITY option), wildcard and SAN enabled SSL certificates were ignored. See also Compatibility Matrix. Note that the --ssl-verify-server-cert option is deprecated in Percona Server 5.7. Bug fixed #1673656 (upstream #68052).
]Killing a stored procedure execution could result in an assert failure on a debug server build. Bug fixed #1689736 (upstream #86260).
[]It was not possible to build Percona Server on Debian 9 (stretch) due to issues with OpenSSL 1.1. Bug fixed #1702903 (upstream #83814).
]The SET STATEMENT … FOR statement changed the global instead of the session value of a variable if the statement occurred immediately after the SET GLOBAL or SHOW GLOBAL STATUS command. Bug fixed #1385352.
[*]The synchronization between the LRU manager and page cleaner threads was not done at shutdown. Bug fixed #1689552.
Other bugs fixed: #6, #44, #65, #1160986, #1676740, #1689989, #1689998, #1690012, #1699788, and #1684601 (upstream #86016).
