-debugThe server is compiled for debugging.

Changing the Version String

Some old legacy code may break because they are parsing the VERSION string and expecting a MySQL string or a simple version string like Joomla til API17, see MDEV-7780.

From MariaDB 10.2, one can fool these applications by setting the version string from the command line or the my.cnf files with --version=....
