Release date: 9 Jun 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 5.5.38 Changelog.
In most respects MariaDB will work exactly as MySQL: all commands, interfaces, libraries and APIs that exist in MySQL also exist in MariaDB.

A full list of all changes is in the changelog.
MariaDB on Power
With this release of MariaDB we're introducing binary tarball builds created on a Power7 box running Red Hat 6. They're listed on the downloads page in the "OS/CPU" column as "Linux ppc64". We welcome your feedback on these new packages!
Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!
