MariaDB 5.5 is now GA

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Well, as you or may not have heard, MariaDB 5.5 (5.5.23) was declared GA last week!

It was only about 6-ish weeks ago that MariaDB 5.5 had been released as alpha, so the fact it’s already GA is excellent news for all MariaDB users (and MySQL 5.5 users looking to migrate).

Some of the 5.5 enhancements include:

  • Significantly more efficient thread pool, comparable in functionality to the closed source feature in MySQL Enterprise.
  • Non-blocking client API Library (MWL#192)
  • @@skip_replication option (MWL#234)
  • SphinxSE updated to version 2.0.4.
  • “extended keys” support for XtraDB and InnoDB
  • New INSTALL SONAME statement
  • New LIMIT ROWS EXAMINED optimization.
  • mysql_real_connect() Changes
    In MySQL, and in MariaDB versions before 5.5.21, mysql_real_connect() removes from the MYSQL object any options set with mysql_option() when it fails. Beginning with MariaDB 5.5.21, options are preserved by a failing mysql_real_connect(); use mysql_close(), as normal, to clear them.
    This only has effect if the MYSQL object is reused after a mysql_real_connect() failure (which is unusual). No real-life incompatibilities are expected from this change (it is unlikely that an application would rely on options being automatically removed between connection attempts).

  • The variables replicate_do_*, replicate_ignore_*, and replicate_wild_* have been made dynamic, so they can be changed without requiring a server restart. See Dynamic Replication Variables for more information.
  • Updates to performance schema tables are not stored in binary log and thus not replicated to slaves. This is to ensure that monitoring of the master will not cause a slower performance on all slaves. This also fixes a crash on the slaves.

Chris on SkySQL

Friday, November 19th, 2010

As some of you already know, I too have recently left the MySQL Support Team at Oracle.

However, I am happy to report that I have joined SkySQL!

So I’ll remain in the MySQL Community, and will still be providing support for MySQL. :)

I am grateful to everyone I’ve worked with and to everyone who has had a hand in improving MySQL (no matter how small or large) over the years! It’s been a blast working with such dedicated and passionate people, and I look forward to many more years of the same now at SkySQL! :)
