The MariaDB developers have made several releases in the past week. Rather than post about all of them separately, we decided to combine them into one post. Details for each release are available on their individual Release Notes and Changelog pages.

MariaDB 5.5.36

First up is MariaDB 5.5.36. This is a Stable (GA) release. Apart from general maintenance, bug fixes, and updates, TokuDB is now included in RPM packages for CentOS 6 on x86-64.

MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.0.7

Next is MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.0.7. This is an Alpha release. It is being released now to get it into the hands of any who might want to test it. Do not run Alpha releases on production systems! This version of MariaDB Galera Cluster supports wsrep API v25 which means MariaDB Galera Cluster can be used with either a 25.2.x or 25.3.x Galera wsrep provider. A 25.3.x wsrep provider is included in the MariaDB repositories. And both 25.3.x and 25.2.x wsrep providers are available on the downloads page.

MariaDB Java Client 1.1.6

The last release in the roundup is MariaDB Java Client 1.1.6. This is a Stable (GA) release. Several bugs were fixed and a new connection parameter, serverTimezone, was added. If set, timezone conversions will occur when storing temporal data with preparedStatement and when reading data using ResultSet. The effect is similar to setting the time_zone session variable. The difference is better cross-platform compatibility (i.e timezone names like “Asia/Omsk” can also be used when the server is on Windows). Also, this option works for both datetime and timestamp datatypes, while the server-side option has no effect on datetime.

    I am trying to get TokuDB working on 5.5.36. I have enabled it and it shows 6 entries up with SHOW PLUGINS;.
    Should TokuDB also show up with SHOW ENGINES;. When I try to create tables with tokudb I get a warning and the table is created as InnoDB.

    Is there anything else to enable?

    • Elena Stepanova

      How exactly did you enable it?
      You should see 7 TokuDB entries in SHOW PLUGINS; importantly, one with Name=’TokuDB’ and Type=’STORAGE ENGINE’. If you don’t have it, apparently something went wrong. Try to check your server error log, it might show errors that occured upon plugin initialization.

        Thanks for the reply

        What I found in the error log is that transparent huge pages are enabled on Centos 6.3. It appears the TokuDB needs transparent huge pages disabled.

    Hi,

    I have a great problem with mariaDB/InnoDB. My database have 1300 tables. One of these has 10M of rows. I create, in this table, a view with GROUP BY and I use it as a table….. LEFT JOIN with others tables… Then I run the query, I must wait…. is very slow! I must wait several minutes until the result! The same database with mssql2008R2 or Postgres9.2 …. 0,2 second. It seems that there where problems with mysql/MariaDB if you use GROUP BY in views and after use them with others tables ( left or right join ). Is ti the true? I’m sorry for my english…….

      Hi, Can you please post a bug report describing more thoroughly the issue with create tables and some description of data in the tables with the actual problematic query.
