Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Router 8.0.14 is a new release for MySQL Router 8.0 series.
MySQL Router 8.0 is highly recommended for use with MySQL Server 8.0 and 5.7.
Please upgrade to MySQL Router 8.0.14.
The MySQL Router is a new building block for high availability solutions
based on MySQL InnoDB clusters.
By taking advantage of the new Group Replication technology, and
combined with the MySQL Shell, InnoDB clusters provide an integrated
solution for high availability and scalability for InnoDB based MySQL
databases, that does not require advanced MySQL expertise.
The deployment of applications with high availability requirements is
greatly simplified by MySQL Router. MySQL client connections are
transparently routed to online members of a InnoDB cluster, with MySQL
server outages and cluster reconfigurations being automatically handled
by the Router.
To download MySQL Router 8.0.14, see the "Generally Available (GA)
Releases" tab at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/router. Package
binaries are available for several platforms and also as a source code

Changes in MySQL Router 8.0.14 (Not yet released)
* Functionality Added or Changed
* Bugs Fixed
Functionality Added or Changed
* A new dynamic configuration bootstrap feature was added
that tracks the current MySQL InnoDB cluster Metadata
servers. This replaces the existing
bootstrap_server_addresses option with the new
dynamic_config option in mysqlrouter.conf.
MySQL Router now tracks and stores active MySQL InnoDB
cluster Metadata server addresses and loads them if
Router is restarted. Previously, metadata server
information was defined during Router's initial bootstrap
operation and stored statically as
bootstrap_server_addresses in the configuration file.
This new dynamic_config option is generated by
--bootstrap and is defined under mysqlrouter.conf's
[DEFAULT] section. Its value points to a generated JSON
file named state.json that's initialized with InnoDB
cluster Metadata server addresses and the group
replication ID; and additional information is added and
updated while Router is running.
The bootstrap process no longer defines
bootstrap_server_addresses because dynamic_config
replaces its functionality; and these two options cannot
be set at the same time. For backwards compatibility, if
only bootstrap_server_addresses is set then it functions
as it did in previous Router versions and this new
dynamic configuration functionality is not used. (Bug
#28082857, Bug #91029)
* MySQL Router now persistently tracks the metadata server
addresses rather than only using the static list defined
in the configuration file using the destinations option.
* The --version output was aligned with MySQL Server's
layout. (Bug #28899194)
* Linking Router against libmsyqlclient that was built with
DBUG enabled led to slow Router shutdown procedures. (Bug
* Fixed a thread shutdown race condition. (Bug #28610484)
* Sending mysqlrouter a SIGTERM would take at least 100ms
to shut down. Now a concurrent plugin shutdown queue was
added to speed up the shutdown process. (Bug #28570122)
* A metadata-cache API method was added to check the
initialization status. Routing plugins use this during
initialization to safely register the callbacks after
metadata-cache is initialized. (Bug #28569717)
* Installing MySQL Server with Router from source or
building a tarball with "make package" would create a top
level "data/" directory as part of the "Router"
component. Due to possible collisions with MySQL Server,
"data/" was changed to "var/lib/mysqlrouter". (Bug
* The connection error counter that blocks clients after
max_connect_errors connection errors did not reset after
a successful connection. (Bug #27995042, Bug #90809)
