MariaDB 5.2.3 Released
MariaDB version 5.2.3 has been released. New features include virtual columns, client, user, index and table statistics, and a segmented MyISAM key cache, where the key cache's global mutex is split into several mutex. There are also new storage engines: OQGRAPH for handling hierarchies, and a text-search engine called 'Sphinx.' According to the announcement "most" of the new features came from the community, not from the Monty Program Ab company.
