Re: Is there a way to see release specific docs for spatial support?
Thanks Ian, I've started going through the functions.
On https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/st_convexhull/, the note says
"ST_ConvexHull() was introduced in MariaDB 10.1.2" -- per your last email,
it sounds like that means that ConvexHull (no ST_) should've been in
MariaDB in all versions.
Since MySQL didn't add ConvexHull until 5.7.5, I'm wondering if
- I'm misinterpreting that,
- MariaDB really did have ConvexHull since the start
- MySQL's docs are off and it did have it previously
- MariaDB's docs are off and ConvexHull was also added in 10.1.2
Also, MySQL 5.7.6 deprecated several functions, including ConvexHull() --
are any functions currently deprecated in MariaDB, and if so, are they
noted as such? Or would that come in a future version?
Once again, thanks for your help!
