MySQL 5.6.21 released

MySQL is the world’s most popular open source database, enabling the cost-effective delivery of reliable, high-performance and scalable Web-based and embedded database applications. MySQL is a popular choice of database for use in web applications, and is a central component of the widely used LAMP open source web application software stack. LAMP is an acronym for “Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python.” Free-software-open source projects that require a full-featured database management system often use MySQL.


MySQL 5.6.21 Update

  • MySQL Enterprise Edition now includes a set of encryption functions based on the OpenSSL library that expose OpenSSL capabilities at the SQL level. These functions enable Enterprise applications to perform the following operations:
  • Implement added data protection using public-key asymmetric cryptography
  • Create public and private keys and digital signatures
  • Perform asymmetric encryption and decryption
  • Use cryptographic hashing for digital signing and data verification and validation
  • During recovery, a segmentation fault would occur when marking a table as corrupt
  • An in-place ALTER TABLE operation on a table with a broken foreign key constraint could raise an assertion
  • Retrieval of multiple values with a single get command would return incorrect results instead of an error message
  • and lots more
