This is a Stable (GA) release.
For a list of changes made in this release, with links to detailed information on each push, see the MariaDB 5.5.47 Changelog.
In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB.
Updates & Bug Fixes
MariaDB 5.5.47 is a maintenance release. It includes several bugfixes and updates, including from MySQL 5.5.47. Notable updates include:
- XtraDB updated to 5.5.46-37.6
- Fixes for the following security vulnerabilities:
- CVE-2016-2047: MDEV-9212: Fixed incorrect implementation of the
--ssl-verify-server-certoption that allowed a malicious attacker (with a capability to perform a man-in-the-middle attack) to replace the server SSL certificate, bypassing the client-side hostname verification. This vulnerability was discovered by Paul Kehrer and Alex Gaynor.
SLES 11 Support
Previous builds of MariaDB 5.5 for Suse Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 only supported SLES 11 SP3 and SP4. Starting with this release, SLES 11 builds for x86_64 also support SLES 11 SP1 and SP2.
A full list of all changes is in the changelog.
