Based on small talk with Stefan Idler and Jakob Schröter at OpenRheinRuhr2010, Kajona CMS now officially works with MariaDB. They tested MariaDB and verified that it was a drop-in-replacement for MySQL without any modifications needed on their side. We are of course happy to hear about all real-life success stories!
You can find more about Kajona here.
If your project or product also supports MariaDB, then please tell us about it! You can find our growing list of supported software on our Knowledgebase.
Monty Program Ab has signed up to be a sponsor at the Open Database Camp Sardinia 2011, and has donated the logo placement to the MariaDB project.
As a company we definitely plan to have a few employees attend and speak about all the things we’ve been working on in MariaDB. Will you be there? Go fill out the attendee list.
We’re all very excited at the first Open Database Camp (with a similar OpenSQLCamp format) and are especially excited for it being hosted in the beautiful island of Sardinia. See you there!
You can now find MariaDB 5.2 in your ports tree in FreeBSD. Check out ports/databases/mariadb. Its currently at MariaDB 5.2.4 and the package maintainer will continue updating it as new releases are made. Naturally the documentation in the Knowledgebase has been updated to reflect this.
