Re: MariaDB 10.0.30 now available


Thank you for the details. I understood now why we have multiple GA releases with different versions. My initial impression was - I need to use the GA release of higher version when it's available. 

Also in Mariadb customer portal dashboard, "download MariaDB" always shows latest higher version GA when I choose my OS version. So I thought that's the superior version available for production environment. Also my YUM update automatically choose the higher GA version of MariaDB from MariaDB enterprise repo. 

Thank you again for the details.
