    • Fix the issue that the SELECT … CASE WHEN … ELSE NULL ... query gets an incorrect result caused by the constant folding optimization #11441
  • SQL Execution Engine
    • Fix the issue that the DATE_ADD function gets a wrong result when INTERVAL is negative #11616
    • Fix the issue that the DATE_ADD function might get an incorrect result because it performs type conversion wrongly when it accepts an argument of the FLOAT, DOUBLE, or DECIMAL type #11628
    • Fix the issue that the error message is inaccurate when CAST(JSON AS SIGNED) overflows #11562
    • Fix the issue that other child nodes are not closed when one child node fails to be closed and returns an error during the process of closing Executor #11598
    • Support SPLIT TABLE statements that return the number of Regions that are successfully split and a finished percentage rather than an error when the scheduling is not finished for Region scatter before the timeout #11487
    • Make REGEXP BINARY function case sensitive to be compatible with MySQL #11505
    • Fix the issue that NULL is not returned correctly because the value of YEAR in the DATE_ADD/DATE_SUB result overflows when it is smaller than 0 or larger than 65535 #11477
    • Add in the slow query table a Succ field that indicates whether the execution succeeds #11412
    • Fix the MySQL incompatibility issue caused by fetching the current timestamp multiple times when a SQL statement involves calculations of the current time (such as CURRENT_TIMESTAMP or NOW) #11392

    • Fix the issue that Mod(%), Multiple(*), and Minus(-) operations return an inconsistent 0 result with that in MySQL when there are many decimal digits (such as select 0.000 % 0.11234500000000000000) #11353
  • Server
    • Fix the issue that the plugin gets a NULL domain when OnInit is called back #11426
    • Fix the issue that the table information in a schema can still be obtained through the HTTP interface after the schema has been deleted #11586
  • DDL
    • Disallow dropping indexes on auto-increment columns to avoid incorrect results of the auto-increment columns caused by this operation #11402
    • Fix the issue that the character set of the column is not correct when creating and modifying the table with different character sets and collations #11423
    • Fix the issue that the column schema might get wrong when alter table ... set default... and another DDL statement that modifies this column are executed in parallel #11374
