Download | Release Notes | Changelog | Overview of 5.1

Release date: 29 Oct 2009

MariaDB-5.1.38-beta is based on MySQL-5.1.38, but has these additional changes and bug fixes:

  • mysql-test-run now has options --stop-file and --stop-keep-alive (also accessible with environment variables MTR_STOP_FILE and MTR_STOP_KEEP_ALIVE). With these, it is possible to pause a running test temporarily and let it continue later. See mysql-test-run.
  • Improvements to Gcov support in testing.
  • New column TIME_MS in SHOW FULL PROCESSLIST and INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST, similar to the old TIME column, but with microsecond resolution. Also fixes old TIME column to not be influenced by @TIMESTAMP. Patch by Percona.
  • Optimizer improvement: Table elimination (MWL#17). See Table Elimination.
  • Enhancements to slow log. Includes details of execution plan and microsecond-precision resolution. Based on microslow patch by Percona. See Slow Query Log Extended Statistics.
  • PBXT storage engine. PBXT is developed by PrimeBase Technologies.
  • XtraDB storage engine version 6 as a replacement for the MySQL built-in InnoDB. XtraDB is based on the Oracle/Innobase InnoDB plugin version 1.0.3, with enhancements. XtraDB is developed by Percona.
  • Performance improvements for common cases of character set conversion. See Character Sets and Collations for a list of the character sets and collations included with MariaDB.
  • Pool-of-threads, allowing to map a high number of simultaneous connections onto a lower number of operating system treads, to reduce overhead with using large number of threads.
  • New handler call prepare_index_scan() and other small improvements to the internal storage engine handler API.
  • ./configure now outputs a summary section at the end of the output. (By C.J. Adams-Collier).
  • NDB storage engine disabled in MariaDB builds. (NDB is not supported in MariaDB).
  • Added --abort-source-on-error to the mysql client.
  • Debugging code to check for taking mutexes in the wrong order, which enables to catch potential deadlocks in the server code.
  • Maria storage engine. The Maria storage engine is an enhanment over the MyISAM storage engine which provides journaling and crash recovery.
  • Added new startup option and test commands to mysqltest.
