MariaDB 10.1.40 Release Notes
Release date: 8 May 2019
MariaDB 10.1 is a previous stable series of MariaDB. It is an evolution of MariaDB 10.0 with several entirely new features not found anywhere else and with backported and reimplemented features from MySQL 5.6 and 5.7.
Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!
- This release fixes a regression that was introduced by MariaDB 10.1.39 — by the first installation (not upgrades) of MariaDB rpm packages on a non-systemd Linux distribution, such as CentOS6, the newly created
/var/lib/mysqlwas created with too restrictive file permissions, so clients could not access the unix socket
Apart from the above bug fix, this release is identical to MariaDB 10.1.39.
A file format compatibility bug that was introduced in MariaDB 10.1.0 was fixed in MariaDB 10.1.21.
Using page_compression or non-default innodb_page_size created files that were incompatible with MariaDB 10.0 or MySQL 5.6. MariaDB 10.1.21 and higher will convert affected files from earlier MariaDB 10.1 releases to a compatible format.
This prevents a downgrade to earlier MariaDB 10.1 versions.
