I recently noticed Arch Linux's mariadb package is still on the 10.1 release series, even though upstream has considered the 10.2 and 10.3 release series to be "stable" for at least 4 months. Arch is usually so good about keeping everything up-to-date, so I am curious what the reason for this is. Something to do with compatibility?
If you have further news, feel free to share. :)
Mariadb 10.2 and 10.3 are available in all distro except Arch https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/#mirror=cnrs
I'm sorry but you are wrong! See https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=mariadb&searchon=names&s... (cosmic is not released even!) https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=mariadb&searchon=names&s... (and this is unstable!) https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/mariadb/commits/el6 (el6, centos 6) https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/mariadb/commits/f27 (10.2.17) https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/mariadb/commits/f28 (10.2.17) https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/mariadb/commits/f29 (10.3.9, next release, not released yet).
And why you are refering to mariadb.org site? Do they provide distro packages on distro official mirrors? If I understand that site correctly this is not official repositories (except Archlinux, they just give usual receipt how to install package).
Nobody stops you to build mariadb package locally (I do that for some packages).
