GSoC 2015 : Weekly Report #9 : RFE #1163, RFE #1396 & some corrections
RFE #1163 : PMA not using SET NAMES on using custom charset/ collation (Not implemented, but closed)
Tasks worked upon:
Scheduled Deadline: 9th August
Completed on: NA
1. We decided that since we are not able to reproduce the exact problem, even though we had found a potential spot for bug that variables ‘character_set_client’ and ‘character_set_results’ are never changed and always stuck at ‘utf8mb4’; we would be closing this RFE for now without doing any changes.
Further, if any related feature-requests or bug reports are received, then we can discuss the problem with the ticket creator there and then make the required changes.
Description is available at a previous post.
The PR at  will be closed soon.
2. We received a feedback from the ticket creator of RFE #1606 – Add a filter to the process list saying that it does not work for Maria DB.
I checked out their documentation and examples at : here and here.
The bug and feature request that I pointed out last week were successfully merged with PRs at  and .
I will work on an additional feature of RFE #1679 : Ctrl/Alt + Enter to submit forms in PMA once I find the time. May be this can be treated as a replacement for this unimplemented RFE #1163.
4. Now I will start working on the last feature on the timeline i.e. RFE #1396 : Support MySQL 5.6 SHA256 secure password
While writing the proposal, I did not have enough knowledge of this feature. But I am currently researching as much as I can about this and will be able to complete it soon. Updates will be posted next week.
