The current stable version of MariaDB is now 10.1. I just upgraded my Arch Linux install and I now get an error message:
"Error during connection to database: TMySQL56Connection can not work with the installed MySQL client version: Expected (5.6), got (10.1.9-MariaDB)."
It looks to me that a corresponding change is needed in mysqlconn.inc to add 10.1 as well as 10.0.
Hopefully there aren't any incompatibilities: I'm happy to help test with that.
