MariaDB 5.5.22 is a Release Candidate (RC) 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 a notable code changes, and that we believe the code is ready for general usage (based on bug inflow), but we want more testing before calling it stable. This is the third release of the MariaDB 5.5 series.
