MySQL Sandbox Changelog

New in version 3.0.28

January 7th, 2013
  • MySQL-Sandbox 3.0.28 now supports MySQL 5.6 in more ways.
  • In addition to creating sandboxes without errors, it does also suppress the unnecessary verbosity, it makes the 'clear' command safer, and it adds a script to enable global transaction ID in replication.

New in version 3.0.19 (October 10th, 2011)

  • MySQL Sandbox 3.0.19 now supports tarballs that don't start with 'mysql'.
  • Supported prefixes are 'mysql', 'percona', and 'mariadb'.
  • You can also add a prefix to the extracted tarball directory.
  • These changes have the side effect of making "make_sandbox" backward incompatible. The syntax goes from
  • "make_sandbox TARBALL [--export_binaries] [options for low_level_make_sandbox]"
  • "make_sandbox [--export_binaries|--add_prefix] TARBALL -- [options for low_level_make_sandbox]"
  • (notice the '--' before the final options)

New in version 3.0 GA (May 9th, 2009)

  • New features include: installation as Perl module, the sandbox tool, a test suite with 200 tests, user defined tests, port checking, ability to install from a source directory and from already installed binaries, moving, copying, preserving and deleting sandboxes, creating hierarchical replication systems.
