MariaDB 10.10 preview releases now available

We are pleased to announce the fourth MariaDB series release under the  new release model MariaDB 10.10.0.

Maturing MariaDB more quickly

One of the purposes of the new model is to get features into the hands of users more quickly, in a form which supports stability by allowing the new feature to be more easily tested, separate from other new features being developed at the same time.

Candidate features for MariaDB 10.10

There are four separate preview releases, containing the following features under consideration for release in 10.10.1:

Replication

  1. Change defaults for CHANGE MASTER TO so that GTID-based replication is used by default if master supports it ( MDEV-19801)
  2. Deprecate MASTER_USE_GTID=Current_Pos to favor new MASTER_DEMOTE_TO_SLAVE option ( MDEV-20122)
