Release date: 27 Dec 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 10.0.7 is a Beta release. This is the eighth 10.0-based release, and the third 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.
Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!
MariaDB 10.0.7 is primarily a bug-fix release including fixes for the following bugs and security vulnerabilities:
- EXTRACT (HOUR FROM ...) now adheres to the SQL standard and returns values from 0 to 23. Previously it could return greater values.
The following plugins were updated or added in MariaDB 10.0.7:
- XtraDB storage engine was upgraded to the 5.6 version. Now one can use XtraDB with MariaDB 10.0. Unlike MariaDB 5.5, in 10.0 XtraDB is not the default engine, the default is InnoDB, and XtraDB is available as a dynamic plugin.
- OQGraph storage engine was upgraded to the version 3. Unlike OQGraph v2, that stores all the data in memory, new OQGraph v3 stores them in a table of another storage engine, on disk. Which makes your graphs persistent and also can support much larger graphs. See the OQGraph documentation for details.
- A new plugin metadata_lock_info was added. It implements a new table
INFORMATION_SCHEMA.METADATA_LOCK_INFOthat shows active metadata locks.
