Key Security, Maintenance, and Features Releases
Apache Camel K 1.4.0
Apache Camel K 1.4.0 has just been released!
This is a new major release of Camel K with an improved stability over previous versions, but also adding new features that simplify the overall user experience.
It is based on Camel 3.9.0 and Camel-Quarkus 1.8.1, providing all improvements that they bring, plus much more. In this blog post, we’re going to describe the most important changes.
MySQL Enterprise Audit now supports audit log file pruning, for JSON-format log files. See Space Management of Audit Log Files.
GCC 10 is now a supported compiler for building MySQL on EL7 or EL8. This compiler is available in the devtoolset-10 (EL7) or gcc-toolset-10 (EL8) package. It is also recommended to use GCC 10 when building third-party applications that are based on the libmysqlclient C API library. (Bug #32381003)
Previously, if a client did not use the connection to the server within the period specified by the wait_timeout system variable and the server closed the connection, the client received no notification of the reason. Typically, the client would see Lost connection to MySQL server during query (CR_SERVER_LOST) or MySQL server has gone away (CR_SERVER_GONE_ERROR).
In such cases, the server now writes the reason to the connection before closing it, and client receives a more informative error message, The client was disconnected by the server because of inactivity. See wait_timeout and interactive_timeout for configuring this behavior. (ER_CLIENT_INTERACTION_TIMEOUT).
