Release date: 28 Aug 2012

MariaDB 5.3.8 is a Stable (GA) release. In general this means that there are no known serious bugs, except for those marked as feature requests, that no bugs were fixed since last release that caused notable code changes, and that we believe the code is ready for general usage (based on bug inflow).

For a description of MariaDB 5.3 see the What is MariaDB 5.3 page.

For a list of changes made in MariaDB 5.3.8, with links to detailed information on each push, see the MariaDB 5.3.8 Changelog.

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

Includes MariaDB 5.2 and MySQL 5.1.65

This version of MariaDB includes the latest changes to MariaDB 5.2, and, by extension, MariaDB 5.1, including MySQL 5.1.65. See Changes in MySQL 5.1.65 for what changed between this and previous MySQL versions.

Bug fixes and other improvements

This release fixes numerous cases of the incorrect identifier quoting in the replication code. They were open SQL injection vulnerabilities, that allowed, to a certain extent, to bypass the database privilege system and modify the data, that one was granted no access to. See MDEV-382 (CVE-2012-4414) for details.

This MariaDB release includes several other bug fixes and improvements. It is recommended for all users of MariaDB 5.3.

Alternative Linux binaries

In this version of MariaDB we are starting to provide alternative Linux binaries built on a different build machine. Binaries created on this box require at least GLIBC_2.14. For continuity, we are still providing binaries built with the same toolchain as previous releases. The alternative binaries have a "(GLIBC_2.14)" label to distinguish them from the others.

Be notified of new releases automatically by adding the releases rss feed to your favorite feed reader or by subscribing to the announce 'at' announcement list (this is a low traffic, announce-only list).

MariaDB may already be included in your favorite OS distribution. More information can be found on the Distributions which Include MariaDB page.
