MariaDB moves development to Github
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today marks a milestone in terms of the MariaDB project – going forward, the MariaDB project plans to use Github and git for source code management. The migration happens from Launchpad and the bzr tool.

The 10.1 server development (under heavy development now) will happen on Github. You can check it out here: https://github.com/MariaDB/server. Feel free to watch, star or even fork the code, and send us contributions!

Previous maria-captains should now provide their Github IDs so that they can be accorded similar status. Send the IDs to the maria-developers mailing list.

The project eventually wants to move the 10.0, 5.5, 5.3, 5.2, and

Dotdeb repository problems with MariaDB 5.5 (solution)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Dotdeb is a repository currently targeting Debian and Ubuntu, providing a nice set of packages for LAMP servers.

Recently, MySQL 5.6 was added to the dotdeb repository. On the surface, this is a very harmless addition. MariaDB is a replacement for MySQL and it should be possible for applications designed for MySQL to easily switch to MariaDB. Therefore MariaDB also includes the libraries that applications using MySQL depend upon, such as libmysqlclient18 and mysql-common. The dpkg package manager looks at the MySQL 5.6 packages in dotdeb and assumes that 5.6 is a higher version than 5.5, which results in it removing or replacing libraries during normal apt-get installation and upgrade procedures.

The problems appear in the following scenarios:

This is a maintenance release, and so there are not too many big changes of note, just a number of normal bug fixes. However, there are a couple items worth mentioning:

  • Includes all bugfixes and updates from: MySQL 5.5.36
  • TokuDB is now included in RPM packages for CentOS 6 on x86-64
  • Note this release did not contain the bugfixes from XtraDB 5.5.36 yet. There is one bug fix in XtraDB 5.5.36 that is fairly serious, so if you are a *heavy* XtraDB+ user, I might wait for MariaDB 5.5.37 to be released, so you get this fix. I should note the bug was partially fixed in

    First up is MariaDB 5.5.36. This is a Stable (GA) release. Apart from general maintenance, bug fixes, and updates, TokuDB is now included in RPM packages for CentOS 6 on x86-64.

    MariaDB & distributions update, Dec 2013
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    A few things to note recently, amongst MariaDB in distributions. 

  • Ubuntu keeps MySQL 5.5 despite MariaDB’s success. There’s a lot of reasons for this, but remember the key takeaway here is MySQL 5.5 & the fact that MariaDB wasn’t even in Debian yet when the decision was made.
  • MariaDB is now inside of Debian/sid – check out the packages.
  • RHEL 7 comes with MariaDB 5.5 as a default; this is a good thing.
  • Now, from a distribution standpoint, we’re looking at starting to ship

    Comprehensive How-To for Enabling the Standard InnoDB Plugin in MariaDB and MySQL
    +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I’m always switching back-and-forth between the 2 different InnoDB flavors in MariaDB – XtraDB+ and the standard InnoDB plugin, so I thought I’d simply post all of the various combinations in a single place. (And then I cover enabling the InnoDB Plugin in MySQL, since it’s an option in 5.1.) [Addition: Thanks to Andrew and Sergei for the tips on shortening plugin-load=. The changes are reflected below.]

    Note: Below is for Windows. For Linux, simply change “.dll” to “.so” where appropriate.

    MariaDB 10.0:

    Do not add anything, as the standard InnoDB plugin is the current default (as of 10.0.3, although I do anticipate this changing in the near future, and I’ll update the post accordingly when that happens).

    MariaDB 5.5:

    # Enable the 2 below to disable XtraDB+ and enable the standard InnoDB

    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

    How to Enable the Original InnoDB Plugin in MariaDB 5.5
    +7 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    As I mentioned here, there is a slight change for enabling the [original] InnoDB Plugin in MariaDB 5.5 (as compared to how you would enable it in 5.1).

    Remember, in MariaDB 5.5, if you do not “enable” (i.e., add anything to the config file to do so) the InnoDB Plugin in MariaDB 5.5, you’ll end up with XtraDB+ for your InnoDb plugin. However, if you do “enable” the InnoDB plugin, then you end up with the original InnoDB plugin provided by Oracle/InnoDB.

    The change is that the plugin file (.dll for Windows, .so file for Linux) which was previously named “ha_innodb_plugin.dll” is now just “ha_innodb.dll”.

    Thus, if you previously enabled the plugin with (would have been in a 5.1 instance):

    MariaDB 5.5 is now GA
    +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Well, as you or may not have heard, MariaDB 5.5 (5.5.23) was declared GA last week!

    It was only about 6-ish weeks ago that MariaDB 5.5 had been released as alpha, so the fact it’s already GA is excellent news for all MariaDB users (and MySQL 5.5 users looking to migrate).

    Some of the 5.5 enhancements include:

    • Significantly more efficient thread pool, comparable in functionality to the closed source feature in MySQL Enterprise.
    • Non-blocking client API Library (MWL#192)
    • @@skip_replication option (MWL#234)
    • SphinxSE updated to version 2.0.4.
    • “extended keys” support for XtraDB and InnoDB
    • New INSTALL SONAME statement
    • New LIMIT ROWS EXAMINED optimization.
    • mysql_real_connect() Changes
      In MySQL, and in MariaDB versions before 5.5.21, mysql_real_connect() removes from the MYSQL object

    MariaDB 5.5 has been Released
    +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    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:
