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:
