Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!
- InnoDB no longer acquires advisory file locks by default (MDEV-24393)
- Encryption: Automatically disable key rotation checks for file_key_management plugin (MDEV-14180)
- Some fixes from MySQL 5.7.35 (MDEV-26205)
- A query that uses ORDER BY .. LIMIT clause and "Range checked for each record optimization" could produce incorrect results under some circumstances (MDEV-25858)
- Queries that have more than 32 equality conditions comparing columns of different tables ("tableX.colX=tableY.colY) could cause a stack overrun in the query optimizer (MDEV-17783, MDEV-23937)
- "Condition pushdown into derived table" optimization cannot be applied if the expression being pushed refers to a derived table column which is computed from expression that has a stored function call, @session variable reference, or other similar construct. The fix for MDEV-25969 makes it so that only the problematic part of the condition is not pushed. The rest of the condition is now pushed. (MDEV-25969)
- A query with window function on the left side of the subquery could cause a crash. (MDEV-25630)
- Wrong result selecting from simple view with LIMIT and ORDER BY Queries with views/derived table/CTEs that have this form: "(SELECT ... LIMIT <n>) ORDER BY ...>" could produce wrong results (MDEV-25679)
