Mariadb 10.2 and 10.3 are available in all distro except Arch https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/#mirror=cnrs
The link Eli provided references lots of client programs having problems
- but I didn't find a list of which client programs.
We encountered random failures in different client... And did not record an exact list. Possibly most of this was fixed in later version - I did not check in detail.
I do build packages for recent versions of MariaDB from time to time. Still failing is perl-dbd-mysql with its extensive test suite, that was my primary test case.
Due to unaddressed issues with MariaDB (and Unicode) the original DBD::mysql was forked into DBD::MariaDB . Possibly we should have a look on whether or not replacing this package is an option... But if I understand correctly this brings new incompatibility.
Thanks for this explanation. Perl-dbd-mysql is a mysql module necessary for xtrabackup. May you replace xtrabackup with other backup tool? Here, they say MariaDB Backup, included with MariaDB 10.1.23 and later, is a fork of xtrabackup. https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/backup-and-restore-overview/ Question: is it necessary to keep xtrabackup?
