Invitation to Join MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0.4 Beta!

Today, MariaDB ColumnStore, MariaDB's distributed columnar storage engine for analytics workload, is reaching its next major milestone – the availability of MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0.4 Beta software release.

MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0.4 is built by porting InfiniDB 4.6.2 (which is based on MySQL 5.1) on MariaDB 10.1.18. With this release, the implementation now pasases InfiniDB compatibility regression test and performs on par and better in some cases than InfiniDB which is a huge achievement considering the complexity and changes involved in moving from MySQL 5.1 to MariaDB 10.1. 

The release notes for MariaDB ColumnStore can be found here and the list of bugs fixed can be found in the release notes. Binaries for ColumnStore 1.0.4 Beta are available for download here.

For general ColumnStore questions, please visit our Knowledgebase here. Please report any issues in JIRA so that we may address them.
