MariaDB 5.2.10 is a Stable release.In general this means there are no known serious bugs and we believe the code is ready for general usage. A "stable" MariaDB release is equivalent to a MySQL "GA" release.

For a detailed description of MariaDB 5.2 see the What is MariaDB 5.2 page.

Compared to MariaDB 5.2.9, MariaDB 5.2.10 is a bug-fix release.

For a list of every change made in MariaDB 5.2.10, with links to detailed information on each push, see the MariaDB 5.2.10 Changelog.

In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB.
