Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Server 5.7.32, a new version of the popular Open Source
Database Management System, has been released. MySQL 5.7.32 is
recommended for use on production systems.

For an overview of what's new in MySQL 5.7, please see

For information on installing MySQL 5.7.32 on new servers, please see
the MySQL installation documentation at

MySQL Server 5.7.32 is available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our download pages at

MySQL Server 5.7.32 is also available from our repository for Linux
platforms, go here for details:

Windows packages are available via the Installer for Windows or .ZIP
(no-install) packages for more advanced needs. The point and click
configuration wizards and all MySQL products are available in the
unified Installer for Windows:

5.7.32 also comes with a web installer as an alternative to the full

The web installer doesn't come bundled with any actual products
and instead relies on download-on-demand to fetch only the
products you choose to install. This makes the initial download
much smaller but increases install time as the individual products
will need to be downloaded.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes,
patches, etc.:

The following link lists the changes in the MySQL 5.7 since
the release of MySQL 5.7.31. It may also be viewed

Changes in MySQL 5.7.32 (2020-10-19, General Availability)

     * Functionality Added or Changed

     * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

     * LOCK TABLES privilege checking for views was improved.
       (Bug #31304432)

Bugs Fixed

     * InnoDB: A query that updated the clustered index of an
       internal temporary table returned an incorrect result.
       The modified pages of the clustered index were not added
       to the flush list resulting in lost changes when the
       modified pages were evicted from the buffer pool. (Bug
       References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #29207450.

     * InnoDB: An ALTER TABLE ... IMPORT TABLESPACE operation on
       a large encrypted and compressed table failed with a Page
       decompress failed after reading from disk error. The
       decryption operation did not use the encryption block
       size used during encryption. Also, the encryption process
       did not consider compressed length, while the decryption
       process decrypts data by compressed length only. (Bug

     * InnoDB: A failure occurred during a concurrent update
       operation. The failure was due to an invalid previous
       record value. (Bug #31205266, Bug #99286)

     * InnoDB: The function used to process the SHOW ENGINE
       INNODB MUTEX statement was insufficiently isolated from
       other threads adding new mutexes concurrently. (Bug

     * InnoDB: The buffer control block structure (buf_block_t)
       was freed while reducing the size of the buffer pool,
       causing an assertion failure. The fix for this bug also
       backports important aspects of the fix for Bug #20735882
       / Bug #76343, and replaces the internal
       buf_block_is_uncompressed() function with the
       buf_pointer_is_block_field_instance() function. The
       buf_block_is_uncompressed() function returned false in
       too many cases, affecting OLTP query throughput. (Bug
       #31036301, Bug #31389823)

     * InnoDB: In session started with START TRANSACTION WITH
       CONSISTENT SNAPSHOT, a range query returned a truncated
       result. The end range flag was not reset at the beginning
       of the index read resulting in an aborted read and
       missing rows. (Bug #30950714, Bug #98642)
       References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #23481444.

     * InnoDB: A full-text phrase search raised an assertion
       Thanks to TXSQL (Tencent MySQL) for the contribution.
       (Bug #30933728, Bug #31228694)
       References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #22709692.

     * InnoDB: A long running statistics calculation operation
       on a large table blocked other operations requiring
       access to the table's statistics, causing those
       operations to fail. A new statistics calculation mutex
       was introduced, which permits concurrent access table
       Thanks to Kamil Holubicki for the contribution. (Bug

     * InnoDB: Two connections attempted to use the same
       transaction handler object resulting in a stalled query.
       (Bug #30594501)

     * Replication: When a replication source server shuts down
       and restarts, its MEMORY tables become empty. To
       replicate this effect to replicas, the first time that
       the source uses a given MEMORY table after startup, it
       logs an event that notifies replicas that the table must
       be emptied by writing a statement to the binary log to
       that effect. Previously, this was a DELETE statement, but
       it is now a TRUNCATE statement. A replica server also
       writes this statement to its own binary log when it shuts
       down and restarts. The statement is always logged in
       statement format, even if the binary logging format is
       set to ROW, and it is written even if read_only or
       super_read_only mode is set on the server. (Bug
       #29848785, Bug #95496)

     * Replication: When the system variable session_track_gtids
       was set to OWN_GTID on a multithreaded replica, the
       replica's performance would degrade over time and begin
       to lag behind the master. The cause was the buildup of
       the GTIDs recorded by the replica's worker threads at
       each transaction commit, which increased the time taken
       by the worker threads to insert new ones. Session state
       tracking is now disabled for worker threads on a
       multithreaded replica. Thanks to Facebook for the
       contribution. (Bug #29049207, Bug #92964)

     * Certain cases of successful LDAP authentication could
       cause the server to hang. (Bug #31661437)

     * In bootstrapping mode, certain multiple-statement
       transactions could cause unexpected server behavior. (Bug

     * Sensitive LDAP authentication plugin system variables now
       display as asterisks when retrieved in SQL statements.
       (Bug #31388444, Bug #31391864)

     * After the fix for Bug #81009, privilege checks for
       truncating Performance Schema tables were too restrictive
       when read_only or super_read_only were enabled, causing
       truncation to fail even for users with appropriate table
       privileges. (Bug #31080309, Bug #99072)
       References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #81009.

     * Some INSERT statements were not handled correctly. (Bug

     * Certain prepared statements could cause an unexpected
       server exit. (Bug #30943963)

     * mysqlpump object validation included objects in excluded
       databases. (Bug #30819012)

     * LDAP authentication plugins enforced CA verification
       incorrectly, which could result in use of an incorrect
       CA. (Bug #30220357)

     * ORDER BY queries were not executed correctly when
       sort_buffer_length and max_sort_length were set to values
       which caused the internal limit on the maximum number of
       keys allowed per sort buffer to be set to 0. (Bug

     * A large number of nested arguments in full-text search
       query caused an error. (Bug #29929684)

     * When explicit_defaults_for_timestamp was disabled and a
       NULL was inserted into a generated column declared as
       TIMESTAMP NOT NULL, the server would attempt to convert
       the inserted value to CURRENT_TIMESTAMP. Such an
       insertion is now rejected with ER_BAD_NULL_ERROR. (Bug

     * An assertion could be raised when the SQL layer passed
       incorrect information to InnoDB about the type of
       operation to be performed on a temporary table. (Bug
