Notable changes of this release include:
- RELEASE_ALL_LOCKS (MDEV-10569)
- ALTER TABLE ... RENAME INDEX / KEY (MDEV-7318)
- ALTER TABLE ... RENAME COLUMN (MDEV-16290)
- Recursive CTE cycle detection using CYCLE clause (MDEV-20632)
- ALTER TABLE and RENAME TABLE now support
- Split SUPER privilege to smaller privileges (MDEV-21743). New privileges were added so that more fine grained tuning of what each user can do can be applied:
- The REPLICATION CLIENT privilege was renamed to BINLOG MONITOR. The old syntax is understood for compatibility (MDEV-21743).
- The SHOW MASTER STATUS statement was renamed to SHOW BINLOG STATUS (MDEV-21743). The old syntax is understood for compatibility.
- A number of statements changed the privileges that they require. The old privileges were historically inappropriately chosen in the upstream. 10.5.2 fixes this problem. Note, these changes are incompatible to previous versions. A number of GRANT commands might be needed after upgrade.
- SHOW BINLOG EVENTS now requires the BINLOG MONITOR privilege (required REPLICATION SLAVE prior to 10.5.2).
- SHOW SLAVE HOSTS now requires the REPLICATION MASTER ADMIN privilege (required REPLICATION SLAVE prior to 10.5.2).
- SHOW SLAVE STATUS now requires the REPLICATION SLAVE ADMIN or the SUPER privilege (required REPLICATION CLIENT or SUPER prior to 10.5.2).
- SHOW RELAYLOG EVENTS now requires the REPLICATION SLAVE ADMIN privilege (required REPLICATION SLAVE prior to 10.5.2).
- In order to help the server understand which version a privilege record was written by, the mysql.global_priv.priv field contains a new JSON field,
- SHOW PRIVILEGES now correctly lists the
Delete historyprivilege, rather than displaying it as
Delete versioning rows. (MDEV-20382)
