MariaDB support

The MariaDB database is now supported by Genero 3.00.

MariaDB is the open source brand of Oracle's MySQL that has been adopted by several major organizations.

The purpose of the MariaDB project is to be a drop-in replacement for MySQL.

MariaDB supported versions are 10.0 and higher.

To connect to MariaDB, use the MySQL database driver (dbmmys), and follow MySQL adaptation guide for configuration and SQL portability issues.

Depending on the libmysqlclient library compatibility, you might need to configure Genero to use a version-stamped driver. As of Genero version 3.00, the generic driver name "dbmmys" can be used to connect to MariaDB 10.0. See Database driver specification (driver) for more details.
