Release date: 18 Feb 2014
MariaDB Java Client 1.1.6 is a Stable (GA) release. In general this means that there are no known serious bugs, except for those marked as feature requests, that no bugs were fixed since last release that caused notable code changes, and that we believe the code is ready for general usage (based on bug inflow).
For a description of the MariaDB Java Client see the About the MariaDB Java Client page.

New connection parameter serverTimezone: If set, timezone conversions will occur when storing temporal data with preparedStatement (setDate(), setTime(), setTimestamp()) and when reading data using ResultSet (getDate(),getTime(),getTimestamp()) The effect is similar to setting the time_zone session variable. The difference is better cross-platform compatibility (i.e timezone names like "Asia/Omsk" can also be used when the server is on Windows). Also, this option works for both datetime and timestamp datatypes, while the server-side option has no effect on datetime. (CONJ-65)
