MariaDB 11.0 – new optimizer, new major version series

With MariaDB 10.0.0 having been released over ten years ago (12 Nov 2012), you may ask yourself when there will be MariaDB 11.0.0. If so, I can answer you: Today.

You can now download MariaDB Server 11.0 Alpha preview from our dedicated download page and check out the release notes.

Time has passed …

Of course, we have a better reason for going with a new first number in a release other than ten years having passed. Significant new features. Significant incompatibilities with earlier versions.
