Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As a consequence of the fix, it is no longer possible for an
auto-generated value to be equal to the maximum BIGINT UNSIGNED
value. It is still possible to store that value manually, if the
column can accept it. (Bug #39828, Bug #11749800)
Incompatible Change: Handling of a date-related assertion was
However, a consequence of this change is that several functions
become more strict when passed a DATE() function value as their
argument and reject incomplete dates with a day part of zero. These
functions are affected: CONVERT_TZ(), DATE_ADD(), DATE_SUB(),
DAYOFYEAR(), LAST_DAY(), TIMESTAMPDIFF(), TO_DAYS(), TO_SECONDS(),
WEEK(), WEEKDAY(), WEEKOFYEAR(), YEARWEEK(). Because this changes
date-handling behavior in General Availability-status series (MySQL
5.1 and 5.5), it was reverted in 5.1.62 and 5.5.21. The change is
retained in MySQL 5.6.
