Base users that are currently using MySql/MariaDb might be interested in the events that are after
the announcement of the new release of MariaDb.
It would be great if someone on the Postgresql mailing lists could let us know of significant
announcements from them. For MariaDb i try to do one for beta-testing and 1 for full release.
MariaDb is a drop-in replacement for, but develops faster than, MySql. Also it's run by the
community in much the same way as LibreOffice, Firefox and so on.

Subject: [MariaDB Announce] MariaDB 5.3.6 now available
Date: Monday, 9 April, 2012, 9:01
The MariaDB project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of MariaDB 5.3.6. This is a
stable (GA) release. It includes MySQL 5.1.62, some performance improvements, and several bug fixes.
Most importantly, MariaDB 5.3.6 includes a fix for a bug which, under certain rare circumstances,
allowed a user to connect with an invalid password. This is a serious security issue. We recommend
upgrading from older versions as soon as possible.

The MariaDB-specific book, MariaDB Crash Course, by Ben Forta, is an excellent way to learn more

MariaDB includes a User Feedback plugin. This plugin is disabled by default. If enabled, it submits
basic, completely anonymous MariaDB usage information. This information is used by the developers
to track trends in MariaDB usage to better guide development efforts.
If you would like to help make MariaDB better, please add
"plugin-load=feedback.so" to your my.cnf file! On Windows, add
"feedback=ON" to your my.ini file, or click the checkbox during the
installation of the MSI package.
