An update on Linux distribution adoption of MariaDB, originally published by Colin Charles on 27.12.2013 at bytebot.net. A few things to note recently, amongst MariaDB in distributions.
- Ubuntu keeps MySQL 5.5 despite MariaDB’s success. There’s a lot of reasons for this, but remember the key takeaway here is MySQL 5.5 & the fact that MariaDB wasn’t even in Debian yet when the decision was made.
- MariaDB is now inside of Debian/sid – check out the packages.
- RHEL 7 comes with MariaDB 5.5 as a default; this is a good thing.
