Re: Is there a way to see release specific docs for spatial support?


Hi Michael

The versions have been added to the function documentation.

If no version is listed, it's available in all versions of MariaDB, for example https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/glength/

Some have had synonyms added, for example https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/st_geomcollfromwkb/ where GeomCollFromWKB is available in all versions, and ST_GeomCollFromWKB since 5.3.3

Looking forward to seeing the table!

    Hi Michael

    Great, thanks for the initiative!

    Unfortunately, most of the function pages don't specify the
    version they were introduced. They should all do so, as on
    https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/st-within/ and
    https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/st_boundary/ for example. The
    ones that don't mention the version are the older articles, so for
    early versions of MariaDB.

    I'll look at adding this version information to the pages in the
    next few days, and then you can base your table on that.

        I'm trying to put together a table of which spatial functions
        are supported by MySQL and MariaDB at which version numbers.

        Something like
        for different versions would be awesome, but I can't find it.

        Checking wiki history isn't very helpful because it just shows
        a date that it was changed, with no mention of why.

        Is there a better approach I could be taking?

        I'm making the table for WordPress plugin developers, who have
        to deal with sometimes old versions of MySQL and MariaDB on
        their hosts without control over the upgrade schedule.

        Once I have the table compiled I'd love to share it back on
        the MariaDB KB for future people looking for the same thing.

        Many thanks,
        Michael Moore
