Xenial and Sid Repositories
Our repositories for Debian "Sid" and the newly-released Ubuntu 16.04 "Xenial" use a new GPG signing key. As detailed in MDEV-9781, APT 1.2.7 (and later) prefers SHA2 GPG keys and now prints warnings when a repository is signed using a SHA1 key like our existing GPG key. We have created a new SHA2 key for use with these affected repositories.
Information about this key:
- The Key ID is:
- The full fingerprint of the new key is:
177F 4010 FE56 CA33 3630 0305 F165 6F24 C74C D1D8
- The key can be added using the following command:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xF1656F24C74CD1D8
The instructions in the repository configuration tool for Ubuntu 16.04 "Xenial" and Debian "Sid" have been updated to reference this new key. Repositories for previous versions of Debian and Ubuntu still use the old key, so no changes are needed there.
The Windows compiler used by MariaDB from this release drops Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 support.
