10.9 preview feature: SHOW ANALYZE and EXPLAIN FOR CONNECTION support

SHOW ANALYZE

If you ever had to do query performance troubleshooting with MariaDB, you should be
familiar with MariaDB’s ANALYZE for statements feature. It does what EXPLAIN ANALYZE does in some other database systems: ANALYZE query runs the query and produces EXPLAIN output, amended with the data from the query execution:

ANALYZE SELECT *
FROM orders, customer
WHERE
customer.c_custkey = orders.o_custkey AND
customer.c_acctbal < 0 AND
orders.o_totalprice > 200*1000

| 1 | SIMPLE | customer | ALL | PRIMARY,…

10.9 preview feature: JSON path expression and JSON_OVERLAPS()

The MariaDB 10.9 preview releases introduce a MySQL compatibility syntax extension, range notation. The ‘last’ keyword was added in JSON path expression, as requested in MDEV-22224 and MDEV-27911. Additionally, negative indexes are now also supported. Range notation, implemented using the ‘to’ keyword, and the ‘last’ keyword, is basically an array element selector.

Syntax:

Range notation:
[M to N] selects a range of elements starting from index M to N.
Last keyword:
[last-N] / [last] selects the Nth from last element, and last element, respectively.
