MariaDB 11.1.0 preview release now available

We are pleased to announce the availability of the MariaDB 11.1 preview release, MariaDB 11.1.0.

Candidate features for MariaDB 11.1

Preview releases are designed to get features into the hands of users more quickly, and should not be used for production. Features in a preview release may not all make the Generally Available (GA) release – only those that pass testing will be merged into MariaDB Server 11.1.1.

Features under consideration for 11.1 include:

Index usage with YEAR and DATE

With MDEV-8320, some queries using the DATE or the YEAR function will be much faster, as the optimizer is now able to make use of an index in certain cases.
