ProxySQL is proud to announce the release of the latest stable version of ProxySQL 2.0.14 on the 8th of September 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.

Release Overview Highlights

Before discussing the features and fixes in this release we’d like to mention that we are aware of the delays in new releases. Ideally we would like to release ProxySQL more rapidly however we have recently been focusing our development efforts on ProxySQL 2.1.

The next edition of ProxySQL brings improved performance as well as many new and exciting features to the table including a built-in Prometheus exporter, enhanced ProxySQL Clustering support, more metrics, more tunables as well as ProxySQL Enterprise which will feature a rich Web UI for configuration management and monitoring.

We will still strive to ensure new releases are provided frequently and do our best to make every effort to make ProxySQL a better proxy!

New Features & Fixes

Although only bug fixes are supposed to go into ProxySQL 2.0.x releases, once again we had to introduce a few small features as well as some crucial OS related updates to support Ubuntu Focal, an overview can be found below:

  • Added support for Ubuntu 20.04 Focal and improved support for FreeBSD & MacOS builds
  • Added several new variables including (`mysql-connect-timeout_client`, similar to MySQL’s client timeout to prevent zombie unauthenticated connections from building up and `mysql-monitor_replication_lag_count` which allows you to control how many checks should fail before a server is `SHUNNED`.
  • ClickHouse support is now merged into the main packages
  • Several fixes and updates that improve stability and enhance the performance of ProxySQL: detailed release notes for ProxySQL 2.0.14 are available on the release page
