Merging 5.6 test cases and thoughts on feature deprecation in MariaDB 10.0
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MariaDB 10 is nearing GA, and it makes sense to make sure that the test suite from MySQL 5.6 is merged into MariaDB 10. Svoj is doing a lot of this work, and then we like to look at features, especially ones that are deprecated upstream. We don’t do that on blogs, but on the maria-developers mailing list.

I bring to your attention: Intermediate status for test cases merge. We see that INSERT DELAYED and SHOW PROFILE for example are deprecated in MySQL 5.6. The only way for feedback to the MySQL team seems to be comments on Morgan’s blog. However with MariaDB, especially with the feedback plugin enabled, we

MariaDB in Google Summer of Code 2014
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MariaDB is participating in the Google Summer of Code 2014. Students are encouraged to propose a project before the deadline (this Friday!).

This is our second year participating, and as always we have an ideas page available. We also have a list of things we think are achievable in JIRA – check out our gsoc14 tag.

In 2013, we had three projects, of which two are in MariaDB 10.0: PCRE regular expressions and Roles. The other will be targeted towards MariaDB 10.1. There’s nothing like having GSoC students participate and have their code

How we tamed Sphinx Search

It is no secret that Spil Games is a heavy user of Sphinx Search. We use it in many ways including game-search, profile-search and since a few months ago to even build our category and subcategory listings. In all cases we do not use it as an extension of MySQL but rather as a standalone […]

    Done is better than perfect. That is one of Spil Games Engineering’s principles and it is really something I embrace.

    OSCON BoF
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    At OSCON, if you’re into the MySQL world, the day to be paying attention to BoFs is clearly Wednesday, 24 July 2013. We have a MariaDB BoF at D136 at 8pm-9pm, but before that you might be at the MySQL BoF in the same room, or you might be in Peter Zaitsev’s BoF on MySQL, NoSQL, Big Data – Better Together in E141. So figure out how to split yourself at 7-8pm, and once you’re done, come from 8-9pm at D136 on Wednesday and join the MariaDB crew at OSCON!

    We’ll also be at the SkySQL booth, so come by Booth 815 and get some free t-shirts, stickers, or support the MariaDB community by being a foundation donor.

    MySQL man pages silently relicensed away from GPL
    +7 Vote Up -3Vote Down

    It has recently been brought to our attention that the MySQL man pages have been relicensed. The change was made rather silently going from MySQL 5.5.30 to MySQL 5.5.31. This affects all pages in the man/ directory of the source code.

    You can tell the changes have come during this short timeframe (5.5.30->5.5.31). The old manual pages were released under the following license:

    This documentation is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it only under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; version 2 of the License.

    The new man pages (following 5.5.31 and greater – still valid for 5.5.32) are released under the following license:

    SkySQL merges with Monty Program Ab, makers of MariaDB
    +8 Vote Up -1Vote Down

    SkySQL has signed a merger agreement with Monty Program Ab, creators of the popular MariaDB database. Read more about it, as it features important tidbits from Patrik Sallner (CEO, SkySQL Ab), Simon Phipps (CEO, MariaDB Foundation), and Michael “Monty” Widenius (CTO, MariaDB Foundation).

    A key takeaway is that SkySQL will work alongside & collaborate closely with the MariaDB Foundation, plus continue to invest in the development of the MariaDB server.

    MariaDB participates in Google Summer of Code 2013
    +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    MariaDB is very happy to be accepted as a project in the Google Summer of Code 2013. This will be our first year participating and we’re stoked that we’re one of the accepted organizations. We have an ideas list as always, and we’re expecting to get some great mentors & students to hack on some new code for the MariaDB project (which now comprises not just the server, but Galera Cluster as well as the connectors). Watch this space for more information, but if you’re interested in hacking on MySQL, MariaDB, Galera Cluster or some of the Percona toolkit, and it’s a summer’s worth of work, this should be a lot of fun!

    MariaDB now in OpenBSD ports tree
    +2 Vote Up -3Vote Down

    MariaDB 5.5 is now inside of OpenBSD, the free, functional & secure OS. The work started a few weeks ago, and now you can get MariaDB via the ports tree. And yes, it will replace the current MySQL 5.1 that ships in the next release.

    What other pluggable authentication plugins would you like in MariaDB?
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    MariaDB has had pluggable authentication since MariaDB 5.2. Our most popular authentication plugin that we ship in MariaDB is the PAM authentication plugin. Naturally one is curious to see if users would like to see more authentication plugins being made available, so we’ve posted a poll on Facebook. Please feel free to add your vote to the poll so we have a better idea of where to focus our future pluggable authentication development.

    Two bits of good news for MariaDB users from the distribution standpoint this week:

    openSUSE 12.3 released with MariaDB as default
    +5 Vote Up -4Vote Down

    Congratulations to the openSUSE community on a successful release of openSUSE 12.3. A highlight worth mentioning is that MariaDB is now the default as opposed to MySQL. What are you waiting for, download it!

    From the features list, here’s an excerpt focusing on MariaDB & MySQL:

    openSUSE has moved from MySQL to MariaDB as default. MariaDB was first shipped with openSUSE 11.3 back in 2010. Over the years it proved itself and starting with 12.3 openSUSE is replacing default MySQL implementation with MariaDB. This means that whole distribution is compiled against MariaDB and in ‘M’ in LAMP means MariaDB from now. As

    Hi!

    I'm speaking at MySQL Connect next Saturday, Sep. 29. My Session is a hands-on lab (HOL) on MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/).

    If you are interested in familiarize a bit with MySQL Cluster this is definitely a session for you.


    I will start by briefly introducing MySQL Cluster and its architecture. Then I will guide you through the needed steps to install a local MySQL Cluster, connect to it (using the command line), monitor its logs, and safe shutdown it.

    We will hence have a chance to see which are the most common commands using in MySQL Cluster

    It has been a long time since I’ve been to Manila, so we’re happy to have a meetup group there with the hopes of turning it regular.

    Things are definitely a little quieter here in MariaDB land as many people embark on summer vacations to rest and recharge. However we will be at OSCON 2012. We have a booth in the non-profit/projects pavilion, amazing amounts of schwag, and the famous black vodka that Monty always brings with him. We plan to have a BoF on Thursday evening (come to D135 at 8pm), and we will be at the MySQL BoF on Wednesday evening as well, just for good measure.

    Come say hi. Come tell us how you’re using MariaDB. Come tell us what you want from MariaDB. Come tell us why you switched. Or what we can do to make you switch. It should be all round fun.

    See you next week!

    What comes in between MariaDB now and MySQL 5.6?
    +7 Vote Up -3Vote Down

    We’re quite happy that we’ve released four major releases that are production ready (better known as generally available or GA in the MySQL world) in the last 26 months. That is just a little over two years, and a whole lot of features. In that same time, MySQL has seen one GA release (MySQL 5.5) and we’re all eagerly awaiting the upcoming MySQL 5.6.

    You’ll note that we built MariaDB 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3 based on the MySQL 5.1 codebase. A significant number of features went into MariaDB 5.3 (our biggest GA release to date), with the biggest changes in the optimizer in over a decade. There were also many
