With the release of MariaDB 10.2.2, the newest version of MariaDB has entered the beta stage. In this article, I’ll give an overview of the main new features in MariaDB 10.2. The focus of MariaDB 10.2 can be seen from the categories that the features fall into:
Magicbricks migrated from a proprietary database to MariaDB (version 10.1.x) to support its growing online traffic.
In July, I visited Tokyo, which is a hotbed for technology (especially around databases), to attend the yearly event db tech showcase 2016, held at the Akihabara UDX. My talk focused on Lessons from Database Failures, my third time speaking on the topic and it was well received by the audience.
Starting today, customers can launch MariaDB version 10.1 instances on Amazon RDS. They can also upgrade their existing Amazon RDS for MariaDB database instances from version 10.0 to 10.1 using either the console or API.
MariaDB Server 10.2 has been a long time coming, as planning goes. We met in Amsterdam in October 2015 to start fleshing things out (and also managed a 10.1 GA then), and made a first alpha release in April 2016. If all goes well, 2016 will definitely see the GA release of MariaDB Server 10.2.
I'm now in Hanoi, Vietnam, for the launch of OpenCPS. What, might you ask, is OpenCPS? OpenCPS translates to Open Core Public Services, as Vietnam is providing online public services and OpenCPS should sit at its core. Naturally, all of this will be open source, and AGPL licensed. OpenCPS is the first open source project to realize the development of e-government services in Vietnam.
AliSQL is the fork of MySQL (maintained by Alibaba) that powers all of the group from Tmall, Taobao, Alibaba.com, 1688.com, AliExpress, Cainiao and the payment's network Alipay.

This weekend Team MariaDB attended the 15th annual LinuxFest Northwest. This event has been growing every year, but this year it crossed over to become a HUGE event. There were over 1800 attendees this year, and we had the chance to talk to many of them at our booth and in our talks.
