============================================================================== Changes in MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3.19 (5.6.38-ndb-7.3.19) (2017-10-18, General Availability)

   MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3.19 is a new release of NDB Cluster,
   based on MySQL Server 5.6 and including features from version
   7.3 of the NDB storage engine, as well as fixing a number of
   recently discovered bugs in previous NDB Cluster releases.

   Obtaining MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3.  MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3
   source code and binaries can be obtained from
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/cluster/.

   For an overview of changes made in MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3, see
   What is New in NDB Cluster 7.3
(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-cluster-what-is-new-7-3.html).

   This release also incorporates all bug fixes and changes made
   in previous NDB Cluster releases, as well as all bug fixes and
   feature changes which were added in mainline MySQL 5.6
   through MySQL 5.6.38 (see Changes in MySQL 5.6.38 (Not yet
   released, General Availability)
(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.6/en/news-5-6-38.html)).

   Bugs Fixed

     * Added DUMP code 7027 to facilitate testing of issues
       relating to local checkpoints. For more information, see
       DUMP 7027
(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/ndb-internals/en/ndb-internals-dump-command-7027.html). (Bug #26661468)

     * A previous fix intended to improve logging of node
       failure handling in the transaction coordinator included
       logging of transactions that could occur in normal
       operation, which made the resulting logs needlessly
       verbose. Such normal transactions are no longer written
       to the log in such cases. (Bug #26568782)
       References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #26364729.

     * Some DUMP codes used for the LGMAN kernel block were
       incorrectly assigned numbers in the range used for codes
       belonging to DBTUX. These have now been assigned symbolic
       constants and numbers in the proper range (10001, 10002,
       and 10003). (Bug #26365433)

     * Node failure handling in the DBTC kernel block consists
       of a number of tasks which execute concurrently, and all
       of which must complete before TC node failure handling is
       complete. This fix extends logging coverage to record
       when each task completes, and which tasks remain,
       includes the following improvements:

          + Handling interactions between GCP and node failure
            handling interactions, in which TC takeover causes
            GCP participant stall at the master TC to allow it
            to extend the current GCI with any transactions that
            were taken over; the stall can begin and end in
            different GCP protocol states. Logging coverage is
            extended to cover all scenarios. Debug logging is
            now more consistent and understandable to users.

          + Logging done by the QMGR block as it monitors
            duration of node failure handling duration is done
            more frequently. A warning log is now generated
            every 30 seconds (instead of 1 minute), and this now
            includes DBDIH block debug information (formerly
            this was written separately, and less often).

          + To reduce space used, DBTC instance number: is
            shortened to DBTC number:.

          + A new error code is added to assist testing.
       (Bug #26364729)

     * A potential hundredfold signal fan-out when sending a
       START_FRAG_REQ signal could lead to a node failure due to
       a job buffer full error in start phase 5 while trying to
       perform a local checkpoint during a restart. (Bug #86675,
       Bug #26263397)
