MySQL 5.6 is now EOL.Will MySQL 5.7 or 8 be supported soon? I know we can install on 5.7, but there were issues with it crashing. Richard filed this bug https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=79243 back in 2015, but it's not clear if the various patches since then have actually fixed the problem with Timestone. As for MySQL 8, last time we tried, TS Administrator wouldn't even connect.

    We are using MySQL8 in house now and the next set of upgrades will support it. Some terms have become reserved in MySQL8 such as 'group' and you can imagine there are several of our queries that would use group (as in queries relating to NeoGroup) that need to be changed. That's just one example, there's some others too On 17 May 2021, at 12:25 pm, davidm <[email blocked]> wrote:
