New functionality in this release
- Implement tcpAbortiveClose option, for “hard” socket close (CONJ-27)
- This option can be used in environments where connections are created and closed in rapid succession. Often, it is not possible to create a socket in such environment after a while, since all local “ephemeral” ports are used up by TCP connections in TCP_WAIT state.

Like others we were not satisfied with the fix for a bug in MySQL which caused the query cache and partitioning to not work reliably together. The bug, in simple terms, was that if the query cache was enabled and you used partitioned tables and if a partitioned table was using a transactional engine like InnoDB or XtraDB, the query cache could, under certain circumstances, return incorrect results.
Returning incorrect results is a definite, high-priority bug. However, the upstream fix was to disable all caching of queries from partitioned tables. We wanted a better solution because the query cache can be very useful and beneficial for partitioned tables, just like it is useful and beneficial for non-partitioned tables. …
