Notable Changes

This is the third alpha release in the MariaDB 10.1 series.

Notable changes of this release include:

  • --mysql56-temporal-format option to use the MySQL-5.6 low level formats to store TIME, DATETIME and TIMESTAMP types. (MDEV-5528)
  • Support for Spatial Reference systems for the GIS data (MDEV-60), new REF_SYSTEM_ID column attribute can be used to specify Spatial Reference System ID for columns of spatial data types:
create table t1(g GEOMETRY(9,4) REF_SYSTEM_ID=101);

It can be queried via the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.GEOMETRY_COLUMNS table.

Do not use alpha releases on production systems!

Repositories exist for 10.1, but because 10.1 is still Alpha, they are not visible in the repository configuration tool. To configure a 10.1 apt, yum, or zypper repository using the tool, simply select 10.0 and then when executing the instructions, manually change all occurrences of '10.0' to '10.1'.
