  • Build:
    • clustercontrol-1.8.1-7491

Maintenance Release: November 30th, 2020

  • Build:
    • clustercontrol-controller-1.8.1-4274
  • Controller:
    • MongoDB Percona Backup: Fixed an issue when deleting a backup. The deletion was reported as successful, but it actually failed.
    • MySQL Replication: Fixed a bug where the read_only setting in my.cnf could be inconsistently set on the nodes. The my.cnf file must always have read_only=ON on all nodes.
    • MySQL Replication: Fixed an issue where if the auto_manage_readonly=1 , then a user could set read_only = OFF on a slave. Now the read_only flag will be set to read_only = ON as soon as it is detected.
    • Backups: Fixed the job title of backups executed from schedules. Before the title was set to Backup schedule #N'N, where NN is a number. Now the backup title is properly set to Create Backup.

Maintenance Release: November 23rd, 2020

    • Restore PITR backup: Correctly set/select the node to restore the backup (PITR).
    • Import Cluster: You no longer need to specify vendor or version – it’s automatically detected.
    • Cluster Overview: Setting the same time range sometimes resulted in showing a different range.
  • Misc
    • Fix incorrect backup restore confirmation messages.
    • Fix modal and sidebar issues with the restore backup dialog – it now closes properly.
    • Fix broken backup scheduler icon for the jobs in the Activity Viewer.
    • Fix overlapping text in the Logs → Jobs page for smaller screen resolutions.
    • Empty role is now not being created when canceling the role creation.

Maintenance Release: November 18th, 2020

  • Build:
    • clustercontrol-controller-1.8.1-4258
  • Controller:
    • MongoDB: Installing PBM on MongoDB release v4.2 failed.
    • MaxScale: Due to an SSH environment problem, a node transitioned between offline and online. Now there is better logging in this area.
    • Scheduled backups: Fixed a bug where the scheduled backup printed out the same ID number (#0) for all backups. It is only a printout/formatting issue.

Initial Release: November 13th, 2020

  • Build:

In this release, we introduce a new consistent backup method for MongoDB Replica Sets and Sharded Clusters, native ProxySQL Clustering support, version updates of supported databases, PITR improvements for MySQL, and last but not least security enhancements on the web UI.

Security is always a top priority, and as a part of the security enhancements, a number of vulnerabilities were fixed in the web UI.

MongoDB 3.6 and later can now use Percona Backup for MongoDB to create consistent backups of replica sets and sharded clusters.

ProxySQL Clustering offers a convenient way to keep a number of ProxySQL servers in sync. For example, if a user is created on a node, then the change is propagated to other clustered ProxySQL nodes.

Let us know what you think about these features and changes anytime!
