MariaDB Java Client 1.1.2 is a bug fix release. Some of the bugs fixed include the following:
PreparedStatement.getMetaData() will now return correct ResultSet metadata, also prior to statement execution. In this case, to retrieve metadata, statement will be prepared on the server side. (CONJ-21)
Performance enhancement : Connection.getAutoCommit() will not more issue not issue “select @@autocommit” query anymore. This information is also available in on status flags sent with OK/EOF protocol packets. Also, Connection.setAutoCommit() will be a no-op, if autocommit status is already the same as desired one (CONJ-30)
Fixed several issues with CLOB datatype and ResultSet.setCharacterStream() -non-ASCII character could get lost after setCharacterStream(). CLOB was errneously sent to server as binary (using _BINARY introducer). (CONJ-31)
CHAR BINARY and VARCHAR BINARY were errnously handled as binary type. They are now correctly treated as CHAR/VARCHAR with binary collation. (CONJ-28)
Blob.getBinaryStream() could return blob with incorrect size (CONJ-31)

MariaDB 10.0 is the 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.
This is the third 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. See the release notes and changelog for details on what is new in this release.
Do not use alpha releases on production systems.
