It gives corporate developers, DBAs and ISVs an array of new enterprise features to make more productive developing, deploying, and managing industrial strength applications.

MySQL Database Server delivers new enterprise features, including: ACID Transactions to build reliable and secure business critical applications. Stored procedures to improve developer productivity. Triggers to enforce complex business rules at the database level. Views to ensure sensitive information is not compromised. Information schema to provide easy access to metadata. Distributed transactions (XA) to support complex transactions across multiple databases.

What's New

Version 5.6.16:
  • InnoDB: New global configuration parameters, innodb_status_output and innodb_status_output_locks, allow you to dynamically enable and disable the standard InnoDB Monitor and InnoDB Lock Monitor for periodic output. Enabling and disabling monitors for periodic output by creating and dropping specially named tables is deprecated and may be removed in a future release.
  • Previously, ALTER TABLE in MySQL 5.6 could alter a table such that the result had temporal columns in both 5.5 and 5.6 format. Now ALTER TABLE upgrades old temporal columns to 5.6 format for ADD COLUMN, CHANGE COLUMN, MODIFY COLUMN, ADD INDEX, and FORCE operations. This conversion cannot be done using the INPLACE algorithm, so specifying ALGORITHM=INPLACE in these cases results in an error.
  • CMake now supports a -DTMPDIR=dir_name option to specify the default tmpdir value. If unspecified, the value defaults to P_tmpdir in . Thanks to Honza Horak for the patch.
