Bugs Fixed

After installing the auth_socket plugin any local user might get root access to the server. If you’re using this plugin upgrade is advised. This is a regression, introduced in Percona Server 5.6.11-60.3. Bug fixed #1289599

The new client and server packages included files with paths that were conflicting with the ones in mysql-libs package on CentOS. Bug fixed #1278516.

A clean installation of Percona-Server-server-55 on CentOS would fail due to a typo in mysql_install_db call. Bug fixed #1291247.

libperconaserverclient18.1 Debian/Ubuntu packages depended on multiarch-support, which is not available on all the supported distribution versions. Bug fixed #1291628.

The InnoDB file system mutex was being locked incorrectly if Atomic write support for Fusion-io devices was enabled. Bug fixed #1287098.

Slave I/O thread wouldn’t attempt to automatically reconnect to the master after a network time-out (error: 1159). Bug fixed #1268729 (upstream #71374).
