MariaDB 10 is nearing GA, and it makes sense to make sure that the test suite from MySQL 5.6 is merged into MariaDB 10. Svoj is doing a lot of this work, and then we like to look at features, especially ones that are deprecated upstream. We don’t do that on blogs, but on the maria-developers mailing list.
I bring to your attention: Intermediate status for test cases merge. We see that INSERT DELAYED and SHOW PROFILE for example are deprecated in MySQL 5.6. The only way for feedback to the MySQL team seems to be comments on Morgan’s blog. However with MariaDB, especially with the feedback plugin enabled, we have an additional layer of information besides just comments on a blog or mailing list.
We see from the features being used, INSERT DELAYED and SHOW PROFILE are still being used. The rest of the thread is an interesting read, as for example we should probably follow 5.6 in making NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION to be the default. Also if you’re interested in the reason behind YEAR(2) existing, there is reasoning to why it exists.
The list continues. If you’re interested in MariaDB development, please ensure that you’re subscribed to the maria-developers mailing list, and if you’re a user, please consider enabling the user feedback plugin.
