As you might know from our SLE 15 SP2 Public Beta announcement, we are now releasing fewer Public Beta ISOs but we are releasing weekly updates, called Snapshot, in our Beta Online Channels!

So let’s see what notable changes did we make 3 weeks after the Public Beta release.

Beta Registration Code

It’s important to note that, to benefit from having the freshest updates on your SLE 15 SP2 Beta system, you need to register it with a Beta Registration Code. This will give you access to our Beta Online Channels thus allowing you to check and install all updates.

Please request your Beta Registration Codes at beta-programs@lists.suse.com.

Notable Changes

MariaDB

We have recently update MariaDB to version 10.4.12. We are aware that some parts of the distribution may need further adaptations to the new version, so it’s important to read the following notes:

Changes & Improvements

How to upgrade

Important packaging changes and news

  • Provide mariadb variants of mysql binaries (e.g. mariadb-dumpslow is a symlink to mysqldumpslow and the like),
  • Add rcmariadb compat link,
  • Rename libmysqld subpackage (embedded library) to libmariadbd since libmysqld.so was renamed to libmariadbd.so,
  • remove sql_mode from my.cnf since NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION and STRICT_TRANS_TABLES are already set by default from version 10.2.4,
  • enhance mariadb.service and mariadb@.service with various options (Documentation=, User=, Group=, KillSignal=, SendSIGKILL=, Restart=, RestartSec=, CapabilityBoundingSet=, ProtectSystem=, ProtectHome=, PermissionsStartOnly= and UMask=),
  • Remove “innodb_file_format” option from my.cnf file that was removed in MariaDB 10.3.1. Also remove “innodb_file_per_table=ON” option that is ON by default and it’s redundant now.

We will appreciate feedback on how other subsystems work with updated MariaDB.
