See here:


It's similar to what you describe. MASTER_GTID_WAIT() is already in 10.0 (I
can't remember if it is in 10.0.8, else it will be in 10.0.9).

Note that if you really want to wait for any change in GTID on a slave, you
can just take the current @@gtid_slave_pos, add one to every sequence number,
and wait for that.
