In case you didn’t notice it last week, MariaDB 5.5 (5.5.20, specifically) has been released.
It’s a release I’ve been looking forward to for a while now, so I’m very excited that it’s now available!
Note that it is currently ‘alpha’ since it is the very first release of MariaDB 5.5. However, it is not your typical new ‘alpha’, so I would expect it to be GA in the not-so-distant future (please don’t quote me on this though, as I have no idea of the true time table – but the goal is for the next 5.5 release to be ‘beta’).
You can download MariaDB 5.5 from the following location:
