This is a maintenance release, and so there are not too many big changes of note, just a number of normal bug fixes. However, there are a few items worth mentioning:

  • Includes all bugfixes and updates from 5.5.38
  • XtraDB updated to the version from Percona Server 5.5.37-35.0
  • TokuDB updated to version 7.1.6
  • MariaDB on Power: With this release of MariaDB we're introducing binary tarball builds created on a Power7 box running Red Hat 6. They're listed on the downloads page in the "OS/CPU" column as "Linux ppc64". We welcome your feedback on these new packages!
