We are pleased to announce the release of Manticore Search 2.7.2 GA.
Manticore Search is now compatible with MySQL 8.x clients.
TRUNCATE command receive optional WITH RECONFIGURE which allows truncate and reconfigure of a RT index in a single command.
VIP connections for HTTP protocol using 'http_vip' suffix in listen directive.
SHOW AGENT STATUS receive new statistics: _ping, _has_perspool, _need_resolve.
Indexer --verbose option allows optional [debug|debugv|debugvv] for printing debug messages (like searchd counterpart).
Some improvements for I/O completion ports on Windows platform.
DEBUG command which allows running specific subcommands. The number of subcommands is limited, but it will be expanded in future. On VIP connections, more privileged subcommands can be executed, like daemon shutdown.
'shutdown_token' searchd direction - a SHA1 hash of the password required to invoke 'shutdown' subcommand using DEBUG command.
Agents are now stored in a global hash of multi-agents rather than per index. This allows, first, to avoid disturbing global hash of hosts, and also keep inter-hosts statistic used for HA uniform.
A number of bugs have been fixed in this release. Several fixes are related to agent communication, most critical being an issue where closed connections could remain orphan, leading to crashes.
An important memory leak on JSON filtering was fixed. In addition, a number of potential memory leaks were fixed. Starting with this version, we will perform valgrind checks for memory leaks detection during the testing period of each release.
For a full report please consult the Release note.
Given the high number of stability fixes we strongly recommend upgrading to this version, regardless if you are using 2.7.x or older Sphinx/Manticore versions.
