Notable changes

MariaDB 10.0.8 is primarily a bug-fix and polishing release.

Notable changes of this release include:

  • Fixes for the following security vulnerabilities:
  • InnoDB upgraded to version 5.6.14
  • FLUSH ... FOR EXPORT works
  • Added a new server variable, old_mode, to allow selectively restoring old behavior, in contrast to the old "all-or-nothing" approach of the --old command-line option. See OLD MODE for more.
  • Added a new read-only server variable malloc_library
  • Bundled PCRE library upgraded to version 8.34
  • The CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE statement was added. It is used internally for replication (MDEV-5491), but it is also can be used by clients as any other SQL statement.
    • This enables replication to be able to continue even if the slave crashes (due to, for example, a bug or power outage) in the middle of a CREATE TABLE, CREATE ... SELECT, or DROP TABLE. When the slave comes back up it can replay the statement without any data loss if needed.
    • As part of this change, the slave-ddl-exec-mode variable was added. It specifies how CREATE TABLE and DROP TABLE statements are replicated.
