Changed Features

GTID output in MaxCtrl list servers

The output of the list servers command now has a GTID column. If a server is being monitored by the mariadbmon monitor, the current GTID position will be displayed in the newly added column. If no GTID is available, an empty value is returned.

MaxAdmin input from scripts

The failure to set terminal attributes for MaxScale is no longer considered an error as scripts most often do not have an actual terminal that control the process. This means that passwords and other commands can be passed to MaxAdmin without a controlling terminal.

MaxCtrl password input

MaxCtrl can now query the password from the user. This allows passwords to be given without giving them as process arguments.
