Release schedule

MariaDB Foundation ensures that MariaDB Server has a steady cadence of releases. Until MariaDB Server 10.6, MariaDB Server had about one stable major release every year. Now there are multiple short term releases each year, in addition to less frequent long-term releases. The current maintained versions are: 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, 10.11, 11.4 (maintained for 5 years), 11.1, 11.2 (maintained for one year). 11.3 is a rolling release. The upcoming rolling release, currently in development is 11.5. The latest preview release is 11.6. Each stable version receives bug-fixes and security fixes periodically.

The roadmap is visible on (login is required), along with estimated release dates.

Reporting bugs

The Reporting Bugs page on the Knowledge Base has details on how to report a bug.

The developers are generally happy to help with verifying bugs. If you need help, ask on Zulip, or on the maria-developers mailing list.

If the bug is repeatable, it is very helpful if you create a test case for the bug for use with mysql-test-run. See Debugging MariaDB with mysql-test-run for more information.

For End of Life releases, MariaDB Foundation will not provide security updates, however outside contributors are welcome to submit security and bug fixes and backports to no-longer maintained versions.
