  • Enforce UTF8 for statement-level replication
  • More fixes to address inconsistent journal rewinds
  • Setup replication.log permissions during installation
  • More robust txn-level savepoint handling
  • Fixed races during commit
  • Draft implementation of the group commit for the journal
  • Use buffered I/O for journal writes
  • Fixed incompatible format issues after ALTER TABLE commands
  • Improved statement-level replication
  • Fixed transliteration error for long include/exclude filters
  • Add syscall error descriptions to the log
  • Fixed journal segment permissions
  • Added error reporting for unlink failures
  • Fixed PID accounting for processes sharing the replication journal
