Known MariaDB version incompatibilities

MariaDB (and MySQL) is released in different versions with different behaviors. For backwards compatibility this can be managed with the sql_mode option.

Following you can find behavior differences which cannot be changed by this option. This can cause a regression in an existing application. There is no workaround available. The application needs to be adapted.

Queries with aggregated date types

For a database instance of MariaDB-10.1 or higher the result of the following query has changed.

Copy
SELECT MIN(NOW)

Before, this returned the current time as String, now this is of type Datetime.

Flaky tests are tests that sometimes fail for no obvious reason. They are the plague of many end-to-end (E2E) test suites that automate the browser through tools like Capybara and Selenium.
