Dear MySQL Users,

MySQL Cluster is the distributed, shared-nothing variant of MySQL.
This storage engine provides:

- In-Memory storage - Real-time performance
- Transparent Auto-Sharding - Read & write scalability
- Active-Active/Multi-Master geographic replication
- 99.999% High Availability with no single point of failure
and on-line maintenance
- NoSQL and SQL APIs (including C++, Java, http, Memcached
and JavaScript/Node.js)

MySQL Cluster 7.4 makes significant advances in performance;
operational efficiency (such as enhanced reporting and faster restarts
and upgrades) and conflict detection and resolution for active-active
replication between MySQL Clusters.

MySQL Cluster 7.4.28 has been released and can be downloaded from

where you will also find Quick Start guides to help you get your
first MySQL Cluster database up and running.

The release notes are available from

MySQL Cluster enables users to meet the database challenges of next
generation web, cloud, and communications services with uncompromising
scalability, uptime and agility.

Functionality Added or Changed

* NDB Client Programs: Removed a dependency from the
ndb_waiter and ndb_show_tables utility programs on the
NDBT library. This library, used in NDB development for
testing, is not required for normal use. The visible
effect for users from this change is that these programs
no longer print NDBT_ProgramExit - status following
completion of a run. Applications that depend upon this
behavior should be updated to reflect this change when
upgrading to this release.

* Added the --ndb-log-fail-terminate option for mysqld.
When used, this causes the SQL node to terminate if it is
unable to log all row events. (Bug #21911930)

Bugs Fixed

* When a node ID allocation request failed with NotMaster
temporary errors, the node ID allocation was always
retried immediately, without regard to the cause of the
error. This caused a very high rate of retries, whose
effects could be observed as an excessive number of Alloc
node id for node nnn failed log messages (on the order of
15,000 messages per second). (Bug #30293495)

* For NDB tables having no explicit primary key,
NdbReceiverBuffer could be allocated with too small a
size. This was due to the fact that the attribute bitmap
sent to NDB from the data nodes always includes the
primary key. The extra space required for hidden primary
keys is now taken into consideration in such cases. (Bug
