mysqlbinlog --version doesn't print associated MariaDB version

    Details

      Description

      Most client tools print the associated MariaDB version when the --version option is provided to the tool. For example:

      [ec2-user@ip-172-30-0-58 ~]$ mysql --version
      mysql  Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.2.26-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1
      [ec2-user@ip-172-30-0-58 ~]$ mysqladmin --version
      mysqladmin  Ver 9.1 Distrib 10.2.26-MariaDB, for Linux on x86_64
      [ec2-user@ip-172-30-0-58 ~]$ mysqldump --version
      mysqldump  Ver 10.16 Distrib 10.2.26-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64)
      

      However, mysqlbinlog doesn't currently do that:

      [ec2-user@ip-172-30-0-58 ~]$ mysqlbinlog --version
      mysqlbinlog Ver 3.3 for Linux at x86_64
      

      If we compare the relevant code for mysqlbinlog to the code for mysql, then we can see why:

      https://github.com/MariaDB/server/blob/mariadb-10.4.7/client/mysqlbinlog.cc#L1885

      https://github.com/MariaDB/server/blob/mariadb-10.4.7/client/mysql.cc#L1711

      I think mysqlbinlog should print a more complete version string, like the other client tools.
