DBAL 2.4.4 and 2.5.1 released

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of Doctrine DBAL 2.4.4 and 2.5.1. Various bugs that prevented users from upgrading to DBAL 2.5.x have been fixed in DBAL 2.5.1, along with some others. DBAL 2.4.4 only contains backported bug fixes addressed since the release of DBAL 2.5.0.

The index renaming feature introduced in DBAL 2.5.0 caused trouble for some MySQL users utilizing ORM’s schema tool to upgrade their schemas where the schema tool was generating invalid DROP INDEX / CREATE INDEX SQL. Fixing this issue was only possible by introducing a minor BC break (change in behaviour), please see UPGRADE.md for more information (we know that this is a patch release but we are actually reverting a BC break here). MariaDB users had problems upgrading to DBAL 2.5.0 because of the new platform detection feature not taking MariaDB backends into account. Additionally, some minor bugs around schema creation / introspection and DDL in various platforms were fixed.

Please note that this release does not yet include a fix for users having problems with the DBAL connection not being lazy anymore since DBAL 2.5.0 when retrieving the underlying platform. Unfortunately we did not find a good solution for this issue yet. Until the issue is fixed please directly set the platform version as a workaround by using the serverVersion configuration option described in the documentation if you are encountering any problems.
