New and Deprecated Distributions

As per the MariaDB Deprecation Policy, this will be the final release of MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.0 for Fedora 19 "Schrödinger's Cat", Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid", and Mint 9 LTS "Isadora". When the next version of MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.0 is released, repositories for these distributions will go away.

We have also added a couple of new Linux distributions with this release. Both Fedora 21 and Ubuntu 15.04 "Vivid" repositories are now available. As this is the first release with these repositories, they are considered experimental. Please let us know if you run into any issues with them.

Notes

  • Running MariaDB Galera Cluster 5.5 and 10.0 nodes in a cluster is not supported (MDEV-6257)
  • This version of MariaDB Galera Cluster supports wsrep API v25 which means MariaDB Galera Cluster can be used with either a 25.2.x or 25.3.x Galera wsrep provider. A 25.3.x wsrep provider is included in the MariaDB repositories and is also available from the downloads page.
  • On Ubuntu and Debian, the Galera Arbitrator daemon (garbd) and the galera library are in two separate packages. The packages are named galera-3 and galera-arbitrator-3. When installing MariaDB Galera Cluster on Ubuntu and Debian (the mariadb-galera-server package), the galera-3 package will be automatically installed. You can then install the arbitrator package on a separate node (recommended) or on one of the nodes running mariadb-galera-server (not recommended).

Note: If Galera 25.2.x and 25.3.x are both being used in the cluster, MariaDB with Galera 25.3.x must be started with wsrep_provider_options='socket.checksum=1' in order to make it backward compatible with Galera v2. Galera wsrep providers other than 25.3.x or 25.2.x are not supported.

Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB Galera Cluster!
