MariaDB 10.8.0 preview releases now available

Following up on our announcement of the new release model, first used in 10.7.0, we are pleased to announce that the MariaDB Server 10.8.0 preview releases are now available.

Maturing MariaDB more quickly

One of the purposes of the new model is to get features into the hands of users more quickly, in a form which supports stability by allowing the new feature to be more easily tested, separate from other new features being developed at the same time.

  1. MDEV-4989 mysqlbinlog GTID support

FOSDEM22 MariaDB devroom committee

We are pleased to announce the FOSDEM22 MariaDB devroom committee.

In February 2022, MariaDB will be hosting its second dedicated devroom at FOSDEM, and the committee have the job of narrowing down the submissions to choose the most interesting final selection for the FOSDEM and MariaDB communities.

Last year the number of submissions far exceeded the available slots, as it had in earlier years when MariaDB participated as part of the joint MySQL, MariaDB and Friends devroom, and we hope not to let the committee off easy this year.

MariaDB is happy to again be hosting a devroom at FOSDEM 2022. This year’s event will be the second virtual FOSDEM, and the MariaDB devroom will take place on Saturday 5 February 2022. The deadline for submissions is very soon, 21 December 2021.

FOSDEM is one of the highlights of the calendar, aimed at free and open-source developers, and is free to attend, with no registration necessary.

Engineering and DBA-related topics such as:

  • best practices
  • migrating to MariaDB
  • MariaDB features
  • optimising on particular hardware

are particularly welcome, but the committee (being announced soon) will consider any submissions of interest to the broader MariaDB community.

10.7 preview feature: Password Reuse Check plugin

By default, MariaDB does not check if a user reuses a password. Some security policies require users to choose a new password each time, and the Password Reuse Check plugin, available in a MariaDB 10.7.0 preview, enables this functionality.

Old passwords are stored in the mysql.password_reuse_check_history table, and the period they are retained for is determined by the password-reuse-check-interval system variable, which specifies a number of days. By default this is zero, meaning unlimited retention.

The password can be used in conjunction with other password validation plugins, such as the Simple Password Check plugin or the CrackLib Password Check plugin.
