MariaDB has now reached the 6th major release since the original authors of MySQL started taking the code base in another direction than where MySQL is going under Oracle’s ownership. Today MariaDB has many more features than Oracle MySQL and it is the default MySQL variant in Debian.

This presentation covers what new features landed in MariaDB 10.5 and also touches on how the long existing features have evolved to today, and naturally what is their state and best practices for Debian users. MariaDB has also built-in support for Galera master-master replication and Galera 4 has recently landed in Debian, so it will also be covered.

At the end of the presentation there is also a chance to discuss the state of the Debian packaging with the packagers of MariaDB, Galera etc al in Debian.
