Could anyone can answer my question? If I want to deploy a latest galera cluster in my environment, can I use this MariaDB 10.1 GA branch as the overview of MariaDB 10.1 said 'Galera, a true multi-master solution, is a standard part of MariaDB 10.1.'? If so, could someone show me if there is any difference between MariaDB galera Cluster 10.0 during the configuration and deployment steps?

I install mariadb 10.1 in my test machine(centos 6) but I didn't find the galera to be installed(no /usr/lib64/galera/libgalera_smm.so found).

MariaDB 10.1 packages do not contain (yet) MariaDB Galera Cluster libraries. This library is developed by another company. After you have installed MariaDB 10.1 you need to install Galera Cluster library separately and then configure MariaDB 10.1 server to use this library and set up the configuration.

@janlindstrom I'm sorry but you are wrong.

"In MariaDB 10.1 the MariaDB Server and MariaDB Galera Server packages have been combined and Galera packages and their dependencies get installed automatically when installing MariaDB. The Galera parts remain dormant until configured, like a plugin or storage engine." - https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/getting-started-with-mariadb-galera-cluster/
