The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of MariaDB 10.0.0! This is an alpha release.

MariaDB 10.0 is the current development version of MariaDB. It is built on the MariaDB 5.5 series with backported features from MySQL 5.6 and entirely new features not found anywhere else. See “Explanation on MariaDB 10.0″ and “What comes in between MariaDB now and MySQL 5.6?” for more information on why we’re calling this series “MariaDB 10.0″.

This is the first 10.0-based release, and we are releasing it now to get it into the hands of any who might want to test it. Not all features planned for the MariaDB 10.0 series are included in this release. Additional features will be pushed in future releases.

It should go without saying but: Do not use alpha releases on production systems!

See the Release Notes and Changelog for information on this release in particular and What is MariaDB 10.0? for more information MariaDB 10.0 in general.

Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!

It seems there’s lot of activity in Barcelona, Spain in the coming weeks. Lenz Grimmer talks about speaking at LinuxCon Europe (Nov 5-9), where the conference really runs from Nov 5-7. I’m happy to be speaking about MariaDB on the 5th. Monty Program & SkySQL are joint-booth-sponsors of this event, so expect there to be a presence for Q&A at the booths.

While I wish I can stay on for the meetup organized by Giuseppe Maxia, like Lenz, I will have left Barcelona. That aside, there’s lots of database folk/high availability folk/Linux folk in Barcelona over the next couple of weeks.

Drop by & say hi!
