Client library compatibility


Two questions :

  • You mention that the MariaDB client library is compatible with MySQL 5.5. What about its actual MariaDB-versionned compatibility ?
  • I also noted that the client library code is in active and constant development. Is it aimed at evolving at the same time as MariaDB, or will we have, as it's the case for MySQL, a client library for each new MariaDB release ?

Thanks in advance, Bruno

What do you mean with the versioned compatibility? The ELF-object versioning?

To the second question, releases of server and client won't be synchronized, but new protocol-related features will likely be implemented.
