No, both were introduced in 10.1.2. In most cases, this is the wording
that is used, and all synonyms are assumed to be introduced at the same
time. Only in the case of the ST_ synonym being introduced at a
different time does the text state "... introduced as a synonym in
version ...". So unless specified, assume in cases like these that both
arrived at the given version.
As for deprecated functions, assume they're not unless specified, but
it's possible something has been overlooked. I know in the past features
have been deprecated with a small note in the code, and this has never
made it to the documentation. ConvexHull does not appear to be

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!
