Come see us at SCALE13x in Los Angeles, February 19-22 2015, at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport. The schedule has Max Mether speaking on Friday and Colin Charles speaking on Saturday. MariaDB Corporation will also have a booth at the expo hall with giveaways, so come say hi to Marc Sherwood and Rod Allen. If you need a discount code, remember to use SPEAK and save some money!
The Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo (PLMCE) 2015 Call for Papers will close November 16 2014. It is a great place to talk shop about all things MySQL, MariaDB, and the community surrounding it. It happens April 13-16 2015, and I’m sure you’re thinking about ideas so make use of the weekend well and submit a paper, because this is a great event to attend. It’s also a good time to meet some of the MariaDB crew, whom tend to show up as speakers & attendees alike!
Congratulations to the SUSE team, for the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12. It comes by default with MariaDB 10.0.11, and you can find out more information in the release notes (in particular MariaDB replaces MySQL). Let us know if you’re using this, even on systems like POWER – we love to hear from our users!
The MariaDB Team will have the following presentations at Percona Live London:
- Engine Independent Table Statistics in MariaDB: Let the optimizer know your data by Sergei Golubchik
- MySQL in the Hosted Cloud by Colin Charles
We’ll also be at the community meetups and all around the conference during those couple of days. Don’t forget that if you haven’t already registered, you can use discount code ‘PLUK14CC’ for a £20 discount.
A much awaited release from the MariaDB project is now stable (GA) – MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.0.12. This is a complete merge of MariaDB 10.0.12 and Galera Cluster, with additional features and bug fixes. This gives you the entire power of Galera Cluster as well as the benefits of all the MariaDB 10 features.
If you couldn’t attend the MariaDB & MySQL Community Event in April 2014, held at the Hilton Santa Clara, fret not as there are slides and videos uploaded for you to watch at your leisure. There is likely to be at least one more community event later this year, so watch the space.
Currently on the page, you’ll find most of the talks with slides and the videos are professionally done – with slide overlays. The audio could be better on some, but for an event that was pulled together by Monty in less than 3 weeks, it’s not too shabby.
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.
MariaDB is participating in the Google Summer of Code 2014. Students are encouraged to propose a project before the deadline (this Friday!).
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 in shipping products.
