TiDB

  • SQL Optimizer
    • Fix the issue that the “Can’t find column in schema” message is reported when the same table occurs multiple times in a query and logically the query result is always empty #11247
    • Fix the issue that the query plan does not meet the expectation caused by the TIDB_INLJ hint not working correctly in some cases (like explain select /*+ TIDB_INLJ(t1) */ t1.b, t2.a from t t1, t t2 where t1.b = t2.a) #11362
    • Fix the issue that the column name in the query result is wrong in some cases (like SELECT IF(1,c,c) FROM t) #11379
    • Fix the issue that some queries like SELECT 0 LIKE 'a string' return TRUE because the LIKE expression is implicitly converted to 0 in some cases #11411
    • Support sub-queries in the SHOW statement, like SHOW COLUMNS FROM tbl WHERE FIELDS IN (SELECT 'a') #11459

    • Fix the issue that no error is reported when the syntax restriction is violated in the Window function (for example, UNBOUNDED PRECEDING is not allowed to appear at the end of the Frame definition) #11543
    • Fix the issue that FUNCTION_NAME is in uppercase in the ERROR 3593 (HY000): You cannot use the window function FUNCTION_NAME in this context error message, which causes incompatibility with MySQL #11535
    • Fix the issue that the unimplemented IGNORE NULLS syntax in the Window function is used but no error is reported #11593
    • Fix the issue that the Optimizer does not correctly estimate time equal conditions #11512

    • Fix the issue that the computing result might be wrong when the partitioned table is checked by the ADMIN CHECKSUM operation #11266
    • Fix the issue that the result might be wrong when INDEX JOIN uses the prefix index #11246
    • Fix the issue that result might be wrong caused by incorrectly aligning fractions when the DATE_ADD function does subtraction on date numbers involving microseconds #11288
    • Fix the wrong result caused by the DATE_ADD function incorrectly processing the negative numbers in INTERVAL #11325
    • Fix the issue that the number of fractional digits returned by Mod(%), Multiple(*) or Minus(-) is different from that in MySQL when Mod(%), Multiple(*) or Minus(-) returns 0 and the number of fractional digits is large (like select 0.000 % 0.11234500000000000000) #11251
    • Fix the issue that NULL with a warning is incorrectly returned when the length of the result returned by CONCAT and CONCAT_WS functions exceeds max_allowed_packet #11275
    • Fix the issue that NULL with a warning is incorrectly returned when parameters in the SUBTIME and ADDTIME functions are invalid #11337
    • Fix the issue that NULL is incorrectly returned when parameters in the CONVERT_TZ function are invalid #11359

    • Fix the issue that the conversion result is different from that in MySQL if the string contains an invalid character when a long string is converted to an integer #11469
    • Fix the issue that the result of the REGEXP BINARY function is incompatible with MySQL caused by case sensitiveness of this function #11504
    • Fix the issue that an error is reported when the GRANT ROLE statement receives CURRENT_ROLE; fix the issue that the REVOKE ROLE statement does not correctly revoke the mysql.default_role privilege #11356
    • Fix the display format issue of the Incorrect datetime value warning information when executing statements like SELECT ADDDATE('2008-01-34', -1) #11447
    • Fix the issue that the error message reports constant … overflows float rather than constant … overflows bigint if the result overflows when a float field of the JSON data is converted to an integer #11534
    • Fix the issue that the result might be wrong caused by incorrect type conversion when the DATE_ADD function receives FLOAT, DOUBLE and DECIMAL column parameters #11527

    • Fix the issue that the result is incompatible with MySQL when an SQL statement involves computing the current time and the value is fetched multiple times; use the same value when fetching the current time for the same SQL statement #11394
    • Fix the issue that Close is not called for ChildExecutor when the Close of baseExecutor reports an error. This issue might lead to Goroutine leaks when the KILL statements do not take effect and ChildExecutor is not closed #11576
  • Server
    • Fix the issue that the auto-added value is 0 instead of the current timestamp when LOAD DATA processes the missing TIMESTAMP field in the CSV file #11250
    • Fix issues that the SHOW CREATE USER statement does not correctly check related privileges, and USER and HOST returned by SHOW CREATE USER CURRENT_USER() might be wrong #11229
    • Fix the issue that the returned result might be wrong when executeBatch is used in JDBC #11290
    • Reduce printing the log information of the streaming client when changing the TiKV server’s port #11370

    • Add REGION_ID in INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TIDB_HOT_REGIONS #11350
    • Cancel the timeout duration of obtaining Region information from the PD API to ensure that obtaining Region information will not end in a failure when TiDB API http://{TiDBIP}:10080/regions/hot is called due to PD timeout when the number of Regions is large #11383
    • Fix the issue that Region related requests do not return partitioned table-related Regions in the HTTP API #11466
    • Make the following changes to reduce the probability of locking timeout caused by slow operations when the user manually validates pessimistic locking #11521:
      • Increase the default TTL of pessimistic locking from 30 seconds to 40 seconds
      • Increase the maximum TTL from 60 seconds to 120 seconds
      • Calculate the pessimistic locking duration from the first LockKeys request
    • Change the SendRequest function logic in the TiKV client: try to immediately connect to another peer instead of keeping waiting when the connect cannot be built #11531
    • Optimize the Region cache: label the removed store as invalid when a store is moved while another store goes online with a same address, to update the store information in the cache as soon as possible #11567
    • Add the Region ID to the result returned by the http://{TiDB_ADDRESS:TIDB_IP}/mvcc/key/{db}/{table}/{handle} API #11557
    • Fix the issue that Scatter Table does not work caused by the Scatter Table API not escaping the Range key #11298
    • Optimize the Region cache: label the store where the Region exists as invalid when the correspondent store is inaccessible, to avoid reduced query performance caused by accessing this store #11498
    • Fix the error that the table schema can still be obtained through the HTTP API after dropping the database with the same name multiple times #11585
  • DDL
    • Fix the issue that an error occurs when a non-string column with a zero length is being indexed #11214
    • Disallow modifying the columns with foreign key constraints and full-text indexes (Note: TiDB still supports foreign key constraints and full-text indexes in syntax) #11274
    • Fix the issue that the index offset of the column might be wrong because the position changed by the ALTER TABLE statement and the default value of the column are used concurrently #11346
    • Fix two issues that occur when parsing JSON files:
      • int64 is used as the intermediate parsing result of uint64 in ConvertJSONToFloat, which leads to the precision overflow error #11433
      • int64 is used as the intermediate parsing result of uint64 in ConvertJSONToInt, which leads to the precision overflow error #11551
    • Disallow dropping indexes on the auto-increment column to avoid that the auto-increment column might get an incorrect result #11399
    • Fix the following issues #11492:
      • The character set and the collation of the column are not consistent when explicitly specifying the collation but not the character set
      • The error is not correctly reported when there is a conflict between the character set and the collation that are specified by ALTER TABLE … MODIFY COLUMN
      • Incompatibility with MySQL when using ALTER TABLE … MODIFY COLUMN to specify character sets and collations multiple times
    • Add the trace details of the subquery to the result of the TRACE query #11458
    • Optimize the performance of executing ADMIN CHECK TABLE and greatly reduce its execution time #11547
    • Add the result returned by SPLIT TABLE … REGIONS/INDEX and make TOTAL_SPLIT_REGION and SCATTER_FINISH_RATIO display the number of Regions that have been split successfully before timeout in the result #11484
    • Fix the issue that the precision displayed by statements like SHOW CREATE TABLE is incomplete when ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP is the column attribute and the float precision is specified #11591
    • Fix the issue that the index result of the column cannot be correctly calculated when the expression of a virtual generated column contains another virtual generated column #11475
    • Fix the issue that the minus sign cannot be added after VALUE LESS THAN in the ALTER TABLE … ADD PARTITION … statement #11581
  • Monitor
    • Fix the issue that data is not collected and reported because the TiKVTxnCmdCounter monitoring metric is not registered #11316
    • Add the BindUsageCounter, BindTotalGauge and BindMemoryUsage monitoring metrics for the Bind Info #11467
