MySQL Router 8.0

1.6 What's New in MySQL Router 8.0

This section summarizes many of the new features added to MySQL Router 8.0, in relation to MySQL Router 2.1.

Version Numbering

MySQL Router 8.0.3 is the first 8.0.x release to use the new numbering, and is the successor to MySQL Router 2.1.4.


This guide is not updated with every MySQL Router 8.0 release; see the MySQL Router 8.0 release notes for updated information.

MySQL Connectors and other MySQL client tools and applications now synchronize the first digit of their version number with the (highest) MySQL server version they support. This change makes it easy and intuitive to decide which client version to use for which server version. Similarly, MySQL Router now uses the same version number as MySQL Server.
