MariaDB 10.0.5 Release Notes
There was a packaging issue with 10.0.5 on Debian & Ubuntu that prevented TokuDB from installing. This was fixed in 10.0.6.
Release date: 7 Nov 2013
MariaDB 10.0 is the current development version of MariaDB. It is an evolution of the MariaDB 5.5 series with several entirely new features not found anywhere else and with backported and reimplemented features from MySQL 5.6.
MariaDB 10.0.5 is a Beta release. This is the sixth 10.0-based release, and the first beta release. We are releasing it now to get it into the hands of any who might want to test it. All features planned for inclusion in the stable (GA) MariaDB 10.0 series are included in this release. This is still a beta however, not a final, production-ready, release.
Based on MariaDB 5.5
In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB.
This release includes fixes for the following security vulnerabilities:
