Downloading older releases of MariaDB

MariaDB has plenty of mirrors to download the latest versions of MariaDB. Typically mirrors carry the last couple of releases and the current release, but what if you wanted to access something much older?

You have two resources for the complete archive:

  1. http://archive.mariadb.org/ - this is the official archive, but from what I gather, it can be quite slow
  2. http://downloads.skysql.com/files/MariaDB/ - SkySQL provides a complete mirror and it is very fast so I would use this instead. 

Current download archives stand at 337GB. But you can feel free to test older releases, see when things got introduced, etc.
