Version: 1.20.1

Aurora MySQL 1.20.1 is generally available. Aurora MySQL 1.* versions are compatible with MySQL 5.6 and Aurora MySQL 2.* versions are compatible with MySQL 5.7.

Currently supported Aurora MySQL releases are 1.14.*, 1.15.*, 1.16.*, 1.17.*, 1.18.*, 1.19.*, 1.20.*, 1.21.*, 1.22.*, 2.01.*, 2.02.*, 2.03.*, 2.04.*, 2.05.*, 2.06.* and 2.07.*. You can restore the snapshot of an Aurora MySQL 1.* database into Aurora MySQL 1.20.1.

To create a cluster with an older version of Aurora MySQL, please specify the engine version through the RDS Console, the Amazon CLI, or the Amazon RDS API.


This version is currently not available in the following regions: Amazon GovCloud (US-East) [us-gov-east-1], Amazon GovCloud (US-West) [us-gov-west-1]. There will be a separate announcement once it is made available.

High priority fixes:

  • Fixed an issue of intermittent connection failures after certificate rotation.

  • Fixed an issue related to connection close concurrency that would result in a failover under heavy workload.

General stability fixes:

  • Fixed a crash during execution of a complex query involving multi-table joins and aggregation that uses intermediate tables internally.
