About MariaDB 5.3

The MariaDB 5.3 series introduces many new features, includes MariaDB
5.2, and is based on MariaDB 5.1 & MySQL 5.1. Some highlights of new
features in MariaDB 5.3 include:

  • subquery optimizations that finally make subqueries usable
  • many optimizer changes, including Classic Hash Join, Batched Key Access, a new implementation of Multi-Range-Read optimizations as well as Index Condition Pushdown
  • NoSQL-style interfaces via the HandlerSocket plugin as well as dynamic columns
  • group commit in XtraDB when the binary log is enabled
  • Microsoft Windows performance improvements

These are just some of the highlights, and for a more complete list of changes, please see the What is MariaDB 5.3 page.

    Any popular benchmark results against latest MySQL 5.1? Now, I understand that the optimizations might be evident in only more extreme scenarios but I do wonder how big is the performance hit on regular types of load, if there is any of course.
