In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB.
In addition to the differences noted in previous release notes and changelogs, the main differences between MariaDB and MySQL are:
Includes MySQL 5.1.47
For MariaDB 5.1.47 we have merged in all of the upstream changes from MySQL 5.1.45, 5.1.46, and 5.1.47. The MySQL 5.1.45, 5.1.46, and 5.1.47 release notes have details of what changes were made upstream by MySQL since 5.1.44.
Includes XtraDB 1.0.6-10
We have included XtraDB 1.0.6-10 in this version of MariaDB. The XtraDB 1.0.6-10 release notes page has details of the changes made to XtraDB since version 1.0.6-9 (the version included since MariaDB 5.1.42).
Includes PBXT 1.0.11
We have included PBXT 1.0.11 in this version of MariaDB. The PBXT ChangeLog has a list of all of the changes made since PBXT 1.0.09f (the version included in MariaDB since 5.1.41).
Also included is the

Windows build improvements
Several steps were taken during the development of MariaDB 5.1.47 to improve our Windows builds. Steps included the creation of new Windows build slaves, fixes for Windows compiler errors, and better Windows build automation. Windows builds should now be included with every MariaDB release.
A few Ubuntu-specific fixes are included with MariaDB 5.1.47:
- A fix for a dependency problem with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid packages.
- We now build against the full 10.04 release (we used to build against an alpha version of Ubuntu 10.04).
- A fix for an Ubuntu issue that appeared when using libmyodbc with mariadb packages.
We've fixed some process issues with the Debian, Ubuntu, and CentOS repositories provided by Open Query. These issues were delaying the latest release from appearing in the repositories. Now releases should show up in the repositories at around the same time a release shows up on the mirrors.
Fewer warnings and bugs
In MariaDB 5.1.47 we've continued to fix bugs and compiler warnings, including bugs in MySQL 5.1.47. The changelog has links to several of the bugs that we have fixed.
Test Suite improvements
We have also continued our work in improving the test suite.
