Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Community Server 5.0.88, a new version of the popular Open Source
Database Management System, has been released. This and future releases
in the MySQL Community Server 5.0 series share version numbers with
their MySQL Enterprise Server counterparts.
The release is now available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our download pages at
and mirror sites. Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at
this point in time, so if you can't find this version on some mirror,
please try again later or choose another download site.
We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes,
This section documents all changes and bugfixes that have been
applied since the last MySQL Community Server release (5.0.87).
If you would like to receive more fine-grained and personalized
update alerts about fixes that are relevant to the version and
features you use, please consider subscribing to MySQL Enterprise

C.1.1. Changes in MySQL 5.0.88
* Security Fix: MySQL clients linked against OpenSSL did not
check server certificates presented by a server linked against
yaSSL. (Bug#47320: http://bugs.mysql.com/47320)
* MySQL Cluster: When a data node had written its GCI marker to
the first page of a megabyte, and that node was later killed
during restart after having processed that page (marker) but
before completing a LCP, the data node could fail with
filesystem errors. (Bug#44952: http://bugs.mysql.com/44952)
See also Bug#42564: http://bugs.mysql.com/42564,
* Replication: When a session was closed on the master,
temporary tables belonging to that session were logged with
the wrong database names when either of the following
conditions was true:
1. The length of the name of the database to which the
temporary table belonged was greater than the length of
the current database name.
2. The current database was not set.
See also Bug#46861: http://bugs.mysql.com/46861,
* Error handling was missing for SELECT statements containing
subqueries in the WHERE clause and that assigned a SELECT
result to a user variable. The server could crash as a result.
* An assertion could fail if the optimizer used a SPATIAL index.
* mysys/mf_keycache.c requires threading, but no test was made
for thread support. (Bug#47923: http://bugs.mysql.com/47923)
* If the first argument to GeomFromWKB() function was a geometry
value, the function just returned its value. However, it
failed to preserve the argument's null_value flag, which
caused an unexpected NULL value to be returned to the caller,
resulting in a server crash.
* The GPL and commercial license headers had different sizes, so
that error log, backtrace, core dump, and cluster trace file
line numbers could be off by one if they were not checked
against the version of the source used for the build. (For
example, checking a GPL build backtrace against commercial
sources.) (Bug#46216: http://bugs.mysql.com/46216)
* During the build of the Red Hat IA64 MySQL server RPM, the
system library link order was incorrect. This made the
resulting Red Hat IA64 RPM depend on
"libc.so.6.1(GLIBC_PRIVATE)(64bit)", thus preventing
installation of the package.
* Failure to treat BIT values as unsigned could lead to
