Dear MariaDB users,
The development team have been busy bees, and have freshly released MariaDB 5.1.51. MariaDB is a branch of the MySQL database which includes all major open source storage engines, myriad bug fixes and many community patches.
This release of MariaDB 5.1.51 includes MySQL up to version 5.1.51. It also includes XtraDB up to version 5.1.51-12. For more information, do not hesitate to read the release notes, and for more detailed changes, do hop on over to the changelog.
MariaDB is available in source and binary form in a variety of platforms, including Microsoft Windows, Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, CentOS 5, and Solaris x86. These are all available from the downloads page.
I am happy to announce that MariaDB 5.2.3 is now released as a stable release.
During the gamma period we did not receive any serious reports for issues in 5.2, so we are relatively confident that the new code is of decent quality.
You can read about the features of MariaDB 5.2 in my previous blog entry or in the fast growing MariaDB knowledgebase..
What is most interesting about MariaDB 5.2 is that most of the features came from the MariaDB/MySQL community, not from Monty Program Ab!
Without the community it would not have been possible to do a stable release so soon after the last release. Virtual columns, Extended User Statistics, Segmented MyISAM key cache, Pluggable Authentication, OQGRAPH and the Sphinx client are all from code provided by people outside of Monty Program Ab. Storage-engine-specific CREATE TABLE, Enhancements to INFORMATION SCHEMA.PLUGINS table and “Group commit” for the Aria engine were provided by us at Monty Program Ab.
Thanks also to all those who have reported and provided bug fixes for 5.1 and 5.2!
MariaDB 5.2.3 has all changes from MariaDB 5.1.50 and MySQL 5.1.51. (We are just about to release MariaDB 5.1.51)
Please report any issues to the MariaDB bugs database so that we can fix them!
We will continue to fix critical bugs in MariaDB 5.1, even if the
attention of bug fixes will now move to 5.2.
Now we are busy working on getting MariaDB 5.3 ready for beta. We have also started a merge of MariaDB 5.3 + MySQL 5.5 -> MariaDB 5.5 and hope to release this tree soon!
Happy database usage!
