Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!
Any plans for MacOS binaries? I can’t seem to get it to compile for Snow Leopard nor Lion.
Is there any rough, vague estimation (or even hope) on when there may be a stable release?
Of course. We plan to do one or two gamma/RC releases and then release 10.0 stable. And we generally are trying to release once a month (not this January though, because of vacations and conferences). So, say, one can expect 10.0 stable in March/April.
I was reading the various blogs, and I had a question.
Why does mariaDB 10.0 use innoDB while 5.5 uses xtraDB?
What motivated the change over?
MariaDB 10.0 uses new MySQL-5.6 compatible storage engine API. When we started to work on 10.0, XtraDB was not 5.6-compatible, we couldn’t use it back then. We had to move to InnoDB, because InnoDB worked with storage engine API from 5.6.
But when Percona Server 5.6 has stabilized, we took XtraDB-5.6 from there and added it to MariaDB.
So, MariaDB 10.0.7 has both usable XtraDB and InnoDB. But InnoDB is still the default, because XtraDB doesn’t support all platforms that MariaDB does, so we cannot make it a default just yet. It is available as a plugin ha_xtradb.so, you can install it normally as any other plugin.
