Release date: 17 Sep 2013

This 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 a notable code changes, and that we believe the code is ready for general usage (based on bug inflow).

For a description of MariaDB 5.5 see the What is MariaDB 5.5? page.

For a list of changes made in this release, with links to detailed information on each push, see the MariaDB 5.5.33 Changelog.

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