The 2015 MariaDB Developers meetup is taking place in Amsterdam, from October 13th to 15th. Anyone who is interested in contributing to the MariaDB project is welcome to join!

The event will be held in unconference style with lots of opportunities for discussions and collaboration around any topic, ranging from performance, new features, connectors to packaging and documentation. All core MariaDB developers will be present and available for discussions.

The meetup lasts for three days and you can join for the whole time, or as little time as you wish.

The schedule is drafted in a public spreadsheet. The schedule is not fixed and the idea is the following:

  • Everyone attending the meeting can help set the agenda by adding sessions to the session backlog.
  • Everyone attending can/should vote on the session of interest in the backlog by raising the count in the Votes column.

The final schedule will be agreed and published week 39. logo sponsors the MariaDB Developer meetup in Amsterdam

MariaDB 5.1.55 Released

Dear MariaDB users,

The development team have been busy and are ready to release MariaDB 5.1.55. 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 5.1.55 includes MySQL up to version 5.1.55. It also includes XtraDB up to version 5.1.54-12.5. As a highlight, we now have installable Debian and Ubuntu repositories available, so MariaDB is now just an apt-get away. 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, which has also been redesigned – check it out!
