Download Release Notes Changelog Overview of 5.5

Release date: 21 Dec 2014

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

For a list of changes made in this release, with links to detailed information on each push, see the MariaDB 5.5.41 Changelog.

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

Updates & Bug Fixes

MariaDB 5.5.41 is a maintenance release. It includes several bugfixes and updates, including from MySQL 5.5.41. Notable updates include:

  • This release includes two important bug fixes:
    • A fix to a serious bug in InnoDB and XtraDB that sometimes could cause a hard lock up of the server (MDEV-7026)
    • A fix to unnecessary waits in InnoDB and XtraDB (MDEV-7100)
  • When compiled with OpenSSL, MariaDB now supports TLSv1.2 protocol. Limit it to TLSv1.2 ciphers only with --ssl_cipher=TLSv1.2. Limit it to SSLv3 ciphers with --ssl-cipher=SSLv3. RPM and DEB packages from are built with OpenSSL, others (for Windows and generic Linux) are built with yaSSL.

A full list of all changes is in the changelog.
