Maintenance Plugin MariaDB not supported?

There is a small comment in the sidebox on the Maintenance plugin page stating that MariaDB is not supported. Can somebody tell me why that is and even if it is still relevant?

Hi Rick,

Based on user experience, OPTIMIZE command that is used for optimizing database sometimes in very rare cases caused problems with MariaDB DBs. We felt that we need to warn users.

I want to try it out, I would recommend making a backup before running this process.

Hi Bogdan,

Thanks for the swift reply.

So far I did not run into problems but it would be wise to put a warning of some sorts in the settings / switch of the plugin itself not just the webpage.

Hi Rick,

thanks for letting us know.

We will look into this further and run more tests.
