  • PXC-827: Fixed handling of different binlog names between donor and joiner nodes when GTID is enabled. For more information, see #1690398.
  • PXC-830: Rejected the RESET MASTER operation when wsrep provider is enabled and gtid_mode is set to ON. For more information, see #1249284.
  • PXC-833: Fixed connection failure handling during SST by making the donor retry connection to joiner every second for a maximum of 30 retries. For more information, see #1696273.
  • PXC-841: Added check to avoid replication of DDL if sql_log_bin is disabled. For more information, see #1706820.
  • PXC-853: Fixed cluster recovery by enabling wsrep_ready whenever nodes become PRIMARY.
  • PXC-862: Fixed script for SST with XtraBackup (wsrep_sst_xtrabackup-v2) to use the ssl-dhparams value from the configuration file.
