非常高兴的向大家宣布MySQL 8.0 GA版本发布,MySQL 8.0是一个得到全面增强且极具吸引力的新版本。不限于下面几点:

We proudly announce General Availability of MySQL 8.0. Download now! MySQL 8.0 is an extremely exciting new version of the world’s most popular open source database with improvements across the board. Some key enhancements include:

1、SQL方面:窗口函数,公共表达式,NOWAIT, SKIP LOCKED, 降序索引,分组,正则表达式,字符集,CBO优化模式,直方图

1、SQL Window functions, Common Table Expressions, NOWAIT and SKIP LOCKED, Descending Indexes, Grouping, Regular Expressions, Character Sets, Cost Model, and Histograms.


2、JSON Extended syntax, new functions, improved sorting, and partial updates. With JSON table functions you can use the SQL machinery for JSON data.


3、GIS Geography support. Spatial Reference Systems (SRS), as well as SRS aware spatial datatypes, spatial indexes, and spatial functions.


4、Reliability DDL statements have become atomic and crash safe, meta-data is stored in a single, transactional data dictionary. Powered by InnoDB!

5、可观察性:对P_S,I_S,配置参数,错误日志的记录有显著增强5、Observability Significant enhancements to Performance Schema, Information Schema, Co

nfiguration Variables, and Error Logging.


6、Manageability Remote management, Undo tablespace management, and new instant DDL.


7、Security OpenSSL improvements, new default authentication, SQL Roles, breaking up the super privilege, password strength, and more.


8、Performance InnoDB is significantly better at Read/Write workloads, IO bound workloads, and high contention “hot spot” workloads. Added Resource Group feature to give users an option optimize for specific workloads on specific hardware by mapping user threads to CPUs.


The above represents some of the highlights and I encourage you to further drill into the complete series of Milestone blog posts—8.0.0, 8.0.1, 8.0.2, 8.0.3, and 8.0.4 —and even further down in to the individual worklogs with their specifications and implementation details. Or perhaps you prefer to just look at the source code at github.com/mysql.


MySQL 8.0应面向MySQL开发人员的需求,带来了SQL,JSON,正则表达式,地理信息系统等方面的特性,因为很多开发人员有存储EmoJi表情的需求,在新版本中UTF8MB4成为默认的字符集。除此之外,还有对Binary数据类型按位操作,和对IPV6和UUID函数的改进。

MySQL Developers want new features and MySQL 8.0 delivers many new and much requested features in areas such as SQL, JSON, Regular Expressions, and GIS. Developers also want to be able to store Emojis, thus UTF8MB4 is now the default character set in 8.0. Finally there are improvements in Datatypes, with bit-wise operations on BINARY datatypes and improved IPv6 and UUID functions.



MySQL 8.0带来了标准SQL的窗口函数功能,窗口函数与分组聚合函数相类似的是都提供了对一组行数据的统计计算。但与分组聚合函数将多行合并成一行不同是窗口函数会在结果结果集中展现每一行的聚合。

MySQL 8.0 delivers SQL window functions. Similar to grouped aggregate functions, window functions perform some calculation on a set of rows, e.g. COUNT or SUM. But where a grouped aggregate collapses this set of rows into a single row, a window function will perform the aggregation for each row in the result set.



Window functions come in two flavors: SQL aggregate functions used as window functions and specialized window functions. This is the set of aggregate functions in MySQL that support windowing: COUNT, SUM, AVG, MIN, MAX, BIT_OR, BIT_AND, BIT_XOR, STDDEV_POP (and its synonyms STD, STDDEV), STDDEV_SAMP, VAR_POP (and its synonym VARIANCE) and VAR_SAMP. The set of specialized window functions are: RANK, DENSE_RANK, PERCENT_RANK, CUME_DIST, NTILE, ROW_NUMBER, FIRST_VALUE, LAST_VALUE, NTH_VALUE, LEADand LAG


Support for window functions (a.k.a. analytic functions) is a frequent user request. Window functions have long been part of standard SQL (SQL 2003). See blog post by Dag Wanvik here as well as blog post by Guilhem Bichot here.


MySQL 8.0 带来了支持递归的公用表表达式的功能。非递归的公用表表达式由于允许由from子句派生的临时表的原因可以被多次引用,因而被解释为改进型的派生表(from子句中的临时表)。


MySQL 8.0 delivers [Recursive] Common Table Expressions (CTEs). Non-recursive CTEs can be explained as “improved derived tables” as it allow the derived table to be referenced more than once. A recursive CTE is a set of rows which is built iteratively: from an initial set of rows, a process derives new rows, which grow the set, and those new rows are fed into the process again, producing more rows, and so on, until the process produces no more rows. CTE is a commonly requested SQL feature, see for example feature request 16244 and 32174 . See blog posts by Guilhem Bichot here, here, here, and here.


MySQL 8.0 给SQL的上锁子句带来了NOWAIT和SKIP LOCKED两个可选项。在原来的版本中,当行数据被UPDATE或者SELECT ... FOR UPDATE语句上锁后,其他的事务需要等待锁释放才能访问这行数据。

但在某些场景下,有马上获得(不等待锁)数据的需求。使用NOWAIT参数后如果请求的数据中包括了被锁住的行,将马上会收到查询失败的报错信息。使用SKIP LOCKED参数后,返回的数据将会跳过被锁住的行。

MySQL 8.0 delivers NOWAIT and SKIP LOCKED alternatives in the SQL locking clause. Normally, when a row is locked due to an UPDATE or a SELECT ... FOR UPDATE, any other transaction will have to wait to access that locked row. In some use cases there is a need to either return immediately if a row is locked or ignore locked rows. A locking clause using NOWAIT will never wait to acquire a row lock. Instead, the query will fail with an error. A locking clause using SKIP LOCKED will never wait to acquire a row lock on the listed tables. Instead, the locked rows are skipped and not read at all. NOWAIT and SKIP LOCKED are frequently requested SQL features. See for example feature request 49763 . We also want to say thank you to Kyle Oppenheim for his code contribution! See blog post by Martin Hansson here.


MySQL 8.0 带来了对降序索引的支持。在 8.0降序索引中,数据被倒序组织,正向查找。而在之前的版本中,虽然支持创建降序排列的索引,但其实现方式是通过创建常见的正序索引,然后进行反向查找来实现的。


另一方面,真正的降序索引在复合的order by语句(即有asc又有desc)中,可以提高索引利用率,消除filesort。

MySQL 8.0 delivers support for indexes in descending order. Values in such an index are arranged in descending order, and we scan it forward. Before 8.0, when a user create a descending index, we created an ascending index and scanned it backwards. One benefit is that forward index scans are faster than backward index scans. Another benefit of a real descending index is that it enables us to use indexes instead of filesort for an ORDER BY clause with mixed ASC/DESC sort key parts. Descending Indexes is a frequently requested SQL feature. See for example feature request 13375 . See blog post by Chaithra Gopalareddy here.


MySQL 8.0 带来了GROUPING()分组函数,这个功能可以把group by子句扩展功能(如ROLLUP)产生的过聚合NULL值,通过0和1进行区分,1为NULL,这样就可以在having子句中对过聚合的无效值进行过滤。

MySQL 8.0 delivers GROUPING(), SQL_FEATURE T433. The GROUPING() function distinguishes super-aggregate rows from regular grouped rows. GROUP BY extensions such as ROLLUP produce super-aggregate rows where the set of all values is represented by null. Using the GROUPING() function, you can distinguish a null representing the set of all values in a super-aggregate row from a NULL in a regular row. GROUPING is a frequently requested SQL feature. See feature requests 3156 and 46053. Thank you to Zoe Dong and Shane Adams for code contributions in feature request 46053 ! See blog post by Chaithra Gopalareddy here.


在5.7版本中我们引入了新的优化器建议的语法,借助这个新的语法,优化器建议可以被用/*+ */包裹起来,直接放在SELECT | INSERT | REPLACE | UPDATE | DELETE关键字的后面。


In 5.7 we introduced a new hint syntax for optimizer hints. With the new syntax, hints can be specified directly after the SELECT | INSERT | REPLACE | UPDATE | DELETEkeywords in an SQL statement, enclosed in /*+ */ style comments. (See 5.7 blog post by Sergey Glukhov here). In MySQL 8.0 we complete the picture by fully utilizing this new style:

MySQL 8.0 adds hints for INDEX_MERGE and NO_INDEX_MERGE. This allows the user to control index merge behavior for an individual query without changing the optimizer switch.

d47e62d2b349aca45e42305ed6714efbe5ed61d98.0版本增加了JOIN_FIXED_ORDER, JOIN_ORDER, JOIN_PREFIX, 和 JOIN_SUFFIX,允许用户控制join表关联的顺序。

MySQL 8.0 adds hints for JOIN_FIXED_ORDER, JOIN_ORDER, JOIN_PREFIX, and JOIN_SUFFIX. This allows the user to control table order for the join execution.


MySQL 8.0 adds a hint called SET_VAR. The SET_VAR hint will set the value for a given system variable for the next statement only. Thus the value will be reset to the previous value after the statement is over. See blog post by Sergey Glukhov here.


We prefer the new style of optimizer hints as preferred over the old-style hints and setting of optimizer_switch values. By not being inter-mingled with SQL, the new hints can be injected in many places in a query string. They also have clearer semantics in being a hint (vs directive).



MySQL 8.0 adds new JSON functions and improves performance for sorting and grouping JSON values.

1、JSON path表达式中扩展的范围性语法

MySQL 8.0 扩展了JSON path表达式中范围性的语法,比如:SELECT JSON_EXTRACT('[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]', '$[1 to 3]');可以得出[2, 3, 4]的结果。

MySQL 8.0 extends the syntax for ranges in JSON path expressions. For example SELECT JSON_EXTRACT('[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]', '$[1 to 3]'); results in [2, 3, 4].

The new syntax introduced is a subset of the SQL standard syntax, described in SQL:2016, 9.39 SQL/JSON path language: syntax and semantics. See also Bug#79052reported by Roland Bouman.


MySQL 8.0 增加了可以在JSON数据上使用SQL处理工具的JSON 表函数。JSON_TABLE()函数可以创建JSON数据的关系型视图。可以将JSON数据估算到关系型的行列之中,用户可以对此函数返回的数据按照常规关系型数据表的方式进行SQL运算。

MySQL 8.0 adds JSON table functions which enables the use of the SQL machinery for JSON data. JSON_TABLE() creates a relational view of JSON data. It maps the result of a JSON data evaluation into relational rows and columns. The user can query the result returned by the function as a regular relational table using SQL, e.g. join, project, and aggregate.

3、JSON 聚合函数

MySQL 8.0 增加了用于生成JSON阵列的聚合函数JSON_ARRAYAGG(),和用于生成JSON对象的JSON_OBJECTAGG()函数,令多行的JSON文档组合成JSON阵列或者JSON对象成为可能。

MySQL 8.0 adds the aggregation functions JSON_ARRAYAGG() to generate JSON arrays and JSON_OBJECTAGG() to generate JSON objects . This makes it possible to combine JSON documents in multiple rows into a JSON array or a JSON object. See blog post by Catalin Besleaga here.

4、JSON 合并函数

JSON_MERGE_PATCH() 函数可执行JavaScript的语法,在合并时发生重复键值对时将会优先选用第二个文档的键值对,并删除第一个文档对应的重复键值。

The JSON_MERGE_PATCH() function implements the semantics of JavaScript (and other scripting languages) specified by RFC7396, i.e. it removes duplicates by precedence of the second document. For example, JSON_MERGE('{"a":1,"b":2 }','{"a":3,"c":4 }');# returns {"a":3,"b":2,"c":4}.


The JSON_MERGE_PRESERVE() function has the semantics of JSON_MERGE() implemented in MySQL 5.7 which preserves all values, for example JSON_MERGE('{"a": 1,"b":2}','{"a":3,"c":4}'); # returns {"a":[1,3],"b":2,"c":4}.

5.7原来的JSON_MERGE() 函数在8.0版本中为减少merge操作的不明确性,而被弃用。

The existing JSON_MERGE() function is deprecated in MySQL 8.0 to remove ambiguity for the merge operation. See also proposal in Bug#81283 and blog post by Morgan Tocker here.

5、JSON 美化函数


MySQL 8.0 adds a JSON_PRETTY() function in MySQL. The function accepts either a JSON native data-type or string representation of JSON and returns a JSON formatted string in a human-readable way with new lines and indentation.

6、JSON 文件大小函数

8.0版本增加了和指定JSON对象空间占用相关的函数,JSON_STORAGE_SIZE() 可以用字节为单位返回JSON某个数据类型的实际大小, JSON_STORAGE_FREE() 可以返回该JSON数据类型的剩余空间(包括碎片和用来适应更改后发生长度变化的预备空间)

MySQL 8.0 adds JSON functions related to space usage for a given JSON object. The JSON_STORAGE_SIZE() returns the actual size in bytes for a JSON datatype. The JSON_STORAGE_FREE() returns the free space of a JSON binary type in bytes, including fragmentation and padding saved for inplace update.

7、JSON 改进型的排序

8.0版本通过使用变长的排序键提升了JSON排序分组的性能。在某些场景下,Preliminary 的压测结果出现了1.2到18倍的提升。

MySQL 8.0 gives better performance for sorting/grouping JSON values by using variable length sort keys. Preliminary benchmarks shows from 1.2 to 18 times improvement in sorting, depending on use case.


8.0版本增加了对 JSON_REMOVE(), JSON_SET() 和 JSON_REPLACE() 函数的部分更新的支持。如果JSON文档的某部分被更新,我们会将更改的详情给到句柄。这样存储引擎和复制关系就不必写入整个JSON文档。



MySQL 8.0 adds support for partial update for the JSON_REMOVE(), JSON_SET() and JSON_REPLACE() functions. If only some parts of a JSON document are updated, we want to give information to the handler about what was changed, so that the storage engine and replication don’t need to write the full document. In a replicated environment, it cannot be guaranteed that the layout of a JSON document is exactly the same on the slave and the master, so the physical diffs cannot be used to reduce the network I/O for row-based replication. Thus, MySQL 8.0 provides logical diffs that row-based replication can send over the wire and reapply on the slave. See blog post by Knut Anders Hatlen here.
