  * New upstream version 10.1.24, includes fixes for the following
    high-priority regression fixes:
    + MDEV-11842: Fail to insert on a table where a field has no default
    + MDEV-12075: innodb_use_fallocate does not work in MariaDB
      Server 10.1.21

Ondrej can chip in himself on the priority of those items.

I don't know more, but I can reply on a generic level that MariaDB
release notes (summary) and full release notes can be found here:


CVEs are listed here: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/security/
Currently no known CVEs apply for 10.1.24 or 10.1.25, but quite often
it turns out afterwards that releases also fixed security issues.

Traditionally both MySQL and MariaDB have had their stable micro
releases go into stable updates of both Debian and Ubuntu. If these
upstreams decide it makes sense to make a stable micro release, then
usually it also makes sense for distros to ship them either via
security updates or via pu releases.
