There are times when you may want to test specific software or a specific version of software. In my case, I wanted to play with MariaDB Server 10.3.6 Release Candidate and some of the new, upcoming features. I didn’t want to have a permanent installation of it on my laptop so I chose to put it in a Docker container that I can easily copy to another place or remove. These are the steps I had to take to get it done.
The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of MariaDB Server 5.5.60. See the release notes and changelog for details.

The MyRocks storage engine was introduced in MariaDB Server 10.2 as an alpha plugin – the maturity of plugins is separate from the database. It became a beta plugin earlier this year, and with the release of MariaDB Server 10.3.5 (RC) last week, it is now a release candidate plugin.
MariaDB has been collaborating with Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies in pushing the performance envelop by leveraging innovative ARM-based hardware architecture with MariaDB’s unique database architecture. As part of the Qualcomm Centriq™ 2400 product launch back in Nov 2017, we demonstrated the strong read scalability of MariaDB on this chip. Since then, MariaDB and Qualcomm engineering have been working to improve the scalability of write operations which we would like to share with the developer community today.
