Notable Changes

This is the first beta release in the MariaDB 10.2 series.

  • InnoDB was merged from MySQL-5.7.14 (XtraDB is disabled in MariaDB-10.2.2 pending a similar merge)
    • Note that there have been numerous variable changes, both new variables and changes to defaults, for example innodb_strict_mode now defaults to ON.
    • InnoDB tables now support spatial indexes.
  • ANALYZE TABLE has been re-implemented so as not to lock the entire table when collecting engine independent statistics (MDEV-7901)
  • The CONNECT engine now supports the JDBC Table type (MDEV-9765)
  • Internal CRC32 routines use the optimized implementation on Power8 — MDEV-9872
  • Old GPL client library is gone; now MariaDB Server comes with the LGPL Connector/C client library (MDEV-9055)
  • Recursive Common Table Expressions (MDEV-9864)
  • Further improvements and bugfixing for CHECK CONSTRAINT (MDEV-7563) and DEFAULT with expressions (MDEV-10134)

  • Support for NO PAD collations (MDEV-9711)
  • Table cache can automatically partition itself as needed to reduce the contention (MDEV-10296)
  • The thread pool now gives higher priority to connections that have an active transaction. This can be controlled with the new thread_pool_prio_kickup_timer and thread_pool_priority system variables. (MDEV-10297)
  • Window functions support extended. All standard aggregate functions (except GROUP_CONCAT) can be used as window functions. (MDEV-9526)

  • Performance improvements for faster computing of window functions. Multiple window functions with compatible sorting criteria are computed during the same pass. (MDEV-10059)
