Thanks Kristian!

The files have been uploaded to the primary mirror and are in the
process of being replicated to the various MariaDB mirrors.

Please take a look at the Release Notes and Changelog pages and let me
know if anything is missing or needs to be changed.


FYI: The "Download" link on the above two pages is not active yet. Once
all the mirrors have the files I will activate it.
