ABOUT THIS RELEASE
MariaDB 10.0 is the development version of MariaDB. It is built on the MariaDB 5.5 series with backported features from MySQL 5.6 and entirely new features not found anywhere else. This is the third 10.0-based release, and we are releasing it now to get it into the hands of any who might want to test it. Not all features planned for the MariaDB 10.0 series are included in this release. Additional features will be pushed in future releases. See the release notes and changelog for details on what is new in this release.
Do not use alpha releases on production systems.
USER FEEDBACK PLUGIN
MariaDB includes a User Feedback plugin. This plugin is disabled by default. If enabled, it submits basic, completely anonymous MariaDB usage information. This information is used by the developers to track trends in MariaDB usage to better guide development efforts. If you would like to help make MariaDB better, please add “feedback=ON” to your my.cnf (my.ini on Windows) file! See the User Feedback Pluginpage for more information.
The project always strives for quality, but in reality, nothing is perfect. Please take time to report any issues you encounter at: http://mariadb.org/jira We hope you enjoy MariaDB!
