Hi Thorsten, 

We don't plan to add support for MySQL 5.7 in Confluence 6.0, but it is on our radar and we hope to add support in a future release.

Dear Atlassian Devs,


please make sure that you provide support for at least MySQL 5.7 (better would be 5.8, which is already available) as soon as possible.

MySQL 5.6 reaches its end-of-life in about 9 months (February 2018) and will also no longer be available in various Cloud environments then. Please don't forget that your customers will also need some time to migrate their Atlassian services to a supported MySQL version before that deadline.

If you need any assistance here, feel free to contact me. I am an official Oracle Partner and can supply you with resources and testing environments for free, if necessary.
