Release date: 11 Jun 2013
MariaDB 10.0 is the current development version of MariaDB. It is built on the MariaDB 5.5 series with backported and reimplemented features from MySQL 5.6 and entirely new features not found anywhere else.
MariaDB 10.0.3 is an Alpha release. This is the fourth 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.
Based on MariaDB 5.5
In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB.
