MariaDB 5.1.55 Released
Dear MariaDB users,
The development team have been busy and are ready to release MariaDB 5.1.55. MariaDB is a branch of the MySQL database which includes all major open source storage engines, myriad bug fixes and many community patches.
This release of MariaDB 5.1.55 includes MySQL up to version 5.1.55. It also includes XtraDB up to version 5.1.54-12.5. As a highlight, we now have installable Debian and Ubuntu repositories available, so MariaDB is now just an apt-get away. For more information, do not hesitate to read the release notes, and for more detailed changes, do hop on over to the changelog.
MariaDB is available in source and binary form in a variety of platforms, including Microsoft Windows, Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, CentOS 5, and Solaris x86. These are all available from the downloads page, which has also been redesigned – check it out!
