MySQL Replication: What's New in 5.7

Continuing in the footsteps of its predecessor, MySQL 5.7 is set to be a groundbreaking release. The next generation of replication features cover several technical areas such as better semi-synchronous replication, an enhanced multithreaded slave (per-transaction parallelism), improved monitoring with performance schema tables, online configuration changes, options for fine-tuning replication performance, support for more-advanced topologies with multisource replication, and much more. This is also a great chance to learn about MySQL Group Replication - the next generation of active-active, update-anywhere replication for MySQL.
