The MariaDB developers have made several releases in the past week. Rather than post about all of them separately, we decided to combine them into one post. Details for each release are available on their individual Release Notes and Changelog pages.
Next is MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.0.7. This is an Alpha release. It is being released now to get it into the hands of any who might want to test it. Do not run Alpha releases on production systems! This version of MariaDB Galera Cluster supports wsrep API v25 which means MariaDB Galera Cluster can be used with either a 25.2.x or 25.3.x Galera wsrep provider. A 25.3.x wsrep provider is included in the MariaDB repositories. And both 25.3.x and 25.2.x wsrep providers are available on the downloads page.
The last release in the roundup is MariaDB Java Client 1.1.6. This is a Stable (GA) release. Several bugs were fixed and a new connection parameter, serverTimezone, was added. If set, timezone conversions will occur when storing temporal data with preparedStatement and when reading data using ResultSet. The effect is similar to setting the time_zone session variable. The difference is better cross-platform compatibility (i.e timezone names like “Asia/Omsk” can also be used when the server is on Windows). Also, this option works for both datetime and timestamp datatypes, while the server-side option has no effect on datetime.
Thanks, and enjoy MariaDB!
