MariaDB 10.0.14 was recently released, and is available for download here:
This is the fifth GA release of MariaDB 10.0, and 15th overall release of MariaDB 10.0.
This is primarily a bug-fix release. (MariaDB 10.0 is the current stable series of MariaDB. It is an evolution of the MariaDB 5.5 with several entirely new features not found anywhere else and with backported and reimplemented features from MySQL 5.6.)
Here are the main items of note:
- TokuDB upgraded to 7.5.0
- XtraDB upgraded to 5.6.20-68.0
- InnoDB upgraded to 5.6.20
- Spider upgraded to 3.2.11
- SphinxSE upgraded to 2.1.9
- The Feedback plugin now includes statistics on collation usage.
- Error log has a flood protection that is activated after 10 identical unsafe warnings and disables them for the next 5 minutes.
- Many fixes and optimizations for the Power8 platform.
- As per the MariaDB Deprecation Policy, this will be the last release of MariaDB 10.0 for both Ubuntu 13.10 “Saucy” and Mint 16 “Petra”.
- With the recent release of CentOS 7 and RHEL 7, we are pleased to now provide packages for both distributions. Instructions for how to enable the repositories can be found by visiting the “Installing MariaDB with YUM” page and the repository configuration tool.
- Crash in GROUP_CONCAT(IF () ORDER BY 1) (MDEV-6743)
- Server crashes in my_hash_first if shutdown is performed when FLUSH LOGS is running (MDEV-6616)
- Slave replicating using GTID doesn’t recover correctly when master crashes in the middle of transaction (MDEV-6462)
- MariaDB crash on Power8 when built with advance tool chain (MDEV-6450)
As always, it’s great to see all of the fixes alone from TokuDB, XtraDB, InnoDB, Spider, and Sphinx (and thus if you’re relying on any of these technologies, I would consider upgrading). The Power8 enhancements are very nice to see also! (If you’re running Power8 and looking for performance improvements, then you should definitely look into upgrading.) The crash fixes are mostly obscure, but double-check them, just in case they might affect you currently, and if so, then plan to upgrade.
