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.
We are happy to announce the general availability (GA) of MariaDB Server 10.2! MariaDB Server 10.2 is the newest major version of MariaDB Server, the fastest growing open source relational database.
We’re releasing MariaDB Server 10.2.5, which is Release Candidate number 2. Although this is a Release Candidate, there is one significant new piece in it, namely MyRocks. MyRocks is a storage engine developed by Facebook using RocksDB as the backend.
