JSON Support: news, non-news, and the bigger picture

This talk aims to cover everything about the current state of JSON support.

First, I'll cover the newest addition, JSON_TABLE in MariaDB 10.6.

Then, I'll discuss the power of JSONPath in MariaDB and how it compares to the SQL Standard and other databases. This is technically non-news but it hasn't been discussed before.

Finally, we'll take a look at other present and missing features and see what are the biggest and lowest-hanging fruits in JSON support in MariaDB.
