Dear MySQL users, MySQL Server 5.7.16, a new version of the popular Open Source Database Management System, has been released. MySQL 5.7.16 is recommended for use on production systems.
For an overview of what's new in MySQL 5.7, please see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysql-nutshell.html For information on installing MySQL 5.7.16 on new servers, please see the MySQL installation documentation at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/installing.html MySQL Server 5.7.16 is available in source and binary form for a number of platforms from our download pages at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/ MySQL Server 5.7.16 is also available from our repository for Linux platforms, go here for details: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/repo/ Windows packages are available via the Installer for Windows or .ZIP (no-install) packages for more advanced needs. The point and click configuration wizards and all MySQL products are available in the unified Installer for Windows: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/ 5.7.16 also comes with a web installer as an alternative to the full installer. The web installer doesn't come bundled with any actual products and instead relies on download-on-demand to fetch only the products you choose to install. This makes the initial download much smaller but increases install time as the individual products will need to be downloaded. We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes, patches, etc.: http://bugs.mysql.com/report.php The following section lists the changes in MySQL 5.7 since the release of MySQL 5.7.15. It may also be viewed online at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.7/en/news-5-7-16.html Enjoy! Changes in MySQL 5.7.16 (2016-10-12) Security Notes * Incompatible Change: For STANDALONE and WIN builds, the default secure_file_priv value has changed from the empty string to NULL. This is a secure-by-default setting because it disables import and export operations. To permit those operations, set secure_file_priv to the path name of the directory to use for those operations. (Bug #24679907, Bug #24695274, Bug #24707666) * The linked OpenSSL library for the MySQL Commercial Server has been updated to version 1.0.1u. For a description of issues fixed in this version, see http://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html. This change does not affect the Oracle-produced MySQL Community build of MySQL Server, which uses the yaSSL library instead. (Bug #24753389) Functionality Added or Changed * yaSSL was upgraded to version 2.4.2. This upgrade corrects issues with: Potential AES side channel leaks; DSA padding for unusual sizes; the SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations() OpenSSL compatibility function failing to handle long path directory names.
