Release date: 24 Apr 2013

MariaDB 10.0 is the current development version of MariaDB. It is built on the MariaDB 5.5 series with backported features from MySQL 5.6 and entirely new features not found anywhere else.

MariaDB 10.0.2 is an Alpha release. This is the third 10.0-based release, and we are releasing it now to get it into the hands of any who might want to test it. Not all features planned for the MariaDB 10.0 series are included in this release. Additional features will be pushed in future releases. Do not use alpha releases on production systems.

For an overview of MariaDB 10.0 see the What is MariaDB 10.0? page.

Based on MariaDB 5.5

The MariaDB 10.0 series builds off of the MariaDB 5.5 series. It also includes features imported from MySQL 5.6, and completely new features.

In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB.

Bug Fixes

As with all MariaDB releases, numerous bugs were fixed in this release. For details, see the changelog. One particular bug fix we'd like to highlight is:

  • MDEV-4172 - Optimizer now can take into account the selectivity of predicates

Other Features

Other features are planned for inclusion in the Stable (GA) version of MariaDB 10.0. They are listed on the What is MariaDB 10.0? and Plans for 10x pages.

Discontinued builds

The MariaDB project tries to support as many different Operating Systems and Linux Distributions as we can. However, when a distribution or OS stops receiving security and other updates it becomes difficult to freely provide packages for that platform. In such cases, our policy is to deprecate that platform and stop providing binary packages for it.

Accordingly, this will be the final release of MariaDB 10.0 for the following distributions:

  • Ubuntu 8.04 LTS "Hardy"
  • Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric"

Binary tar.gz files built on Ubuntu "Hardy" will also be going away. These are the ones that do not require GLIBC_2.14+. So for the next release, all binary tar.gz files for Linux will require GLIBC_2.14+.

If your chosen Linux Distribution or Operating System is deprecated, packages or support are not completely unavailable. Companies such as SkySQL, Monty Program, and others provide support for all versions of MariaDB back to even very old MySQL versions. This includes packaged binaries. Contact them for more details.

More information on the deprecation policy can be found on the Deprecation Policy page.

Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!
