    Just like MariaDB 10.4 and MariaDB 10.5, MariaDB 10.6 major version release has more new features which further move MariaDB MySQL away from being drop in compatible with Oracle MySQL servers. MariaDB 10.6.3 marks first GA stable release. Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 and higher will eventually add MariaDB 10.5 & 10.6 support as an optional upgrade once private testing is done. Similarly to how MariaDB 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 upgrade support was added. But for now Centmin Mod will default to MariaDB 10.3 default.


    Here's a rundown of what's new in MariaDB 10.6 from Changes and Improvements in MariaDB 10.6

    Is this related to the fact that MariaDB completely sails on her own ship now?
    Not a good development anyway, as far as I am concerned.
    I hear more often in the field that MariaDB is starting to become more unstable.

    It's long been that way since MariaDB 10.4 https://community.centminmod.com/threads/interesting-look-at-whats-new-in-mariadb-10-4.17676/ which is why I've stuck to MariaDB 10.3 for my own usage and Centmin Mod's for so long. Though @happyhacking's point regarding MariaDB major version support lifecycles https://community.centminmod.com/threads/mysql-error-on-new-install.22895/#post-93444 is reminding me to revisit this.

    Each MariaDB major version is introducing major changes as expected just I think they probably have more major versions to maintain than ever before. 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8 and now 10.9 = that's 7 versions!. Probably why they changed their support policy so that 10.6 is long term stable (LTS) and 10.7 and higher are only 1yr supported so they can better manage their load.
    So if we'd want to bet on a version that gets the most attention, it will be MariaDB 10.6, 10.5 and 10.4. Workload wise, after May 2023, MariaDB folks would end 10.7 and 10.8 support so free up more time to dedicate to 10.9 and 10.6 LTS release :)
