Announcing MySQL Utilities release-1.3.4 GA

The MySQL Utilities Team is pleased to announce the latest GA release of
MySQL Utilities. This release marks a milestone of concentrated effort to
expand the use of utilities in more diverse installations through improved
robustness, error handling, and quality.

highlight a few of the more significant improvements.
  • (new utility) MySQL .frm Reader (mysqlfrm) - read .frm files and generate CREATE statements with or without a server connection.
  • (revised) improved documentation including a section on example administrative tasks - see
  • MySQL Utilities is packaged for .msi, .rpl, .deb platforms and source .tar/.zip
  • You can run mysqlfailover as a daemon on POSIX systems
  • Improved accuracy redundant index checking algorithm for mysqlindexcheck
  • Improved accuracy for comparing databases with mysqldbcompare

  1. Have you had an issue using the connector along with another ethernet client? The arduino mega calls a webpage and if it can not conenct then it uses the mysql connector to connect to a LAN database. It fails to connect to the DB. I know the code works because the arduino also runs a webserver and if I send a get request to it (("?offline") for sake of conversation) it connects fine and runs the query. I only experience this issue if I try the ethernet client first. I renamed the other ethernet client and also tried stopping that first to see if that helps, but it did not.
