Notable Changes

  • Lots of changes related to encryption. See the updated documentation. In particular:
    • The distinction between “tablespace encryption” and “page encryption” was removed, now there is only one single encryption feature. One can use both per-table encryption options and the global innodb-encrypt-tables option at the same time.
    • Per table PAGE_ENCRYPTION option that could accept values of ON and OFF was renamed to ENCRYPTED with values YES and NO.
    • Per table PAGE_ENCRYPTION_KEY was renamed to ENCRYPTION_KEY_ID.
    • Global variable innodb_default_page_encryption_key become a session innodb_default_encryption_key_id.
    • The command-line option innodb-encrypt-tables can take the value of FORCE. In this case XtraDB/InnoDB will refuse to create unencrypted tables (CREATE TABLE ... ENCRYPTED=NO will fail).
    • XtraDB/InnoDB on disk format for encrypted tablespaces and logs was changed. Tables encrypted in 10.1.3 may fail to open.
    • Key management plugins were renamed not to have “plugin” in the name, for example, “file_key_management_plugin” is now “file_key_management”.
    • “Key management plugin” type was expanded and renamed to match the new broader set of responsibilities. It is now called encryption plugin.
  • Command-line option innodb-scrub-log-interval was renamed to innodb-scrub-log-speed and now sets the log scrubbing speed in bytes per second.
  • Command-line option innodb-scrub-force-testing was renamed to innodb-debug-force-scrubbing.

Repositories exist for 10.1, but because 10.1 is still Beta, they are not visible in the repository configuration tool. To configure a 10.1 apt, yum, or zypper repository using the tool, simply select 10.0 and then when executing the instructions, manually change all occurrences of '10.0' to '10.1'.
