ProxySQL 2.0.11

ProxySQL is proud announce the release of the latest stable version of ProxySQL 2.0.10 on 25th of February 2020.

ProxySQL is a high performance, high availability, protocol aware proxy for MySQL, with a GPL license! It can be downloaded here or alternatively from the ProxySQL Repository, and freely usable and accessible according to the GNU GPL v3.0 license.

Before moving onto the release overview highlights we’d just like to mention the reason for the short release cycle of 2.0.10. The key driver of this release is to re-introduce support for CentOS 6.7 which was deprecated in 2.0.9. This was re-introduced due to the popularity of the package even though CentOS 6 itself is nearing EOL and is becoming very hard to support due to the availability of the required dependency versions. We will continue to provide our best efforts in supporting legacy OS distributions however it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain these over time as ProxySQL’s build dependencies grow and need to be updated due to evolution of the software as well as for various other easons such as performance and security.

Release Overview Highlights

  • Fixed crashing bug when running LOAD MYSQL SERVERS FROM CONFIG #2536
