MariaDB 10.1.5 was recently released, and is available for download here:
This is the 3rd beta, and 6th overall, release of MariaDB 10.1. There were not many major changes in this release, but a few notable items, as well as many overall bugs fixed (I counted 306).
Since it’s beta, I’ll only cover the major changes and additions, and omit covering general bug fixes (feel free to browse them all here).
To me, these are the highlights:
- New status variables: New status variables Binlog_group_commit_trigger_count, Binlog_group_commit_trigger_timeout, and Binlog_group_commit_trigger_lock_wait used to examine which triggers caused a group commit to be made.
- Encryption: Encryption for temporary files: temporary files created by the server (for binary log caches, for filesort, etc) are now encrypted if the encryption plugin is loaded and –encrypt-tmp-files was specified.
- Encryption: Numerous encryption bugfixes.
- A new column, INFO_BINARY, has been added to the Information Schema PROCESSLIST Table in order to avoid truncating queries with binary data (MDEV-7807).
- Spider updated to 3.2.21.
- Mroonga updated to 5.02.
- Performance: mysqldump performance increased for large databases (MDEV-6714).
Of course it goes without saying that do not use this for production systems since it is still only beta. However, I definitely recommend installing it on a test server and testing it out. And if you happen to be running a previous version of 10.1, then you should definitely upgrade to this latest release.
