For a list of every change made in this release, see the Changelog. For a description of this release see the MariaDB 5.1 overview.

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 5.1.51

For MariaDB 5.1.51 we have merged in all of the upstream changes from MySQL 5.1.51. The MySQL 5.1.51 release notes have details of what changes were made upstream by MySQL since 5.1.50.

Includes XtraDB 5.1.51-12

We have included XtraDB from Percona-server-5.1.51-12 in this version of MariaDB.

Shared Library - libmysqld.so

In addition to the static library, libmysqld.a, this version of MariaDB also includes a corresponding shared library, libmysqld.so. This is needed by applications such as Amarok, which use the embedded server from within dynamically loaded plugins or libraries. Details of this are found in MWL#74, and this patch fixes MySQL Bug #39288.
