We are updating database servers of our shared hosting platform - starting with those currently running MariaDB 10.0 - to MariaDB 10.1. SN22.zone.eu receives updates on 20.10.2016, SN23-SN25 on 24th (users on these servers are receiving email notifications as well). Other parts of the service - email, PHP versions etc - are not affected by this update.
About MariaDB 10.1 - https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/what-is-mariadb-101/
We are not expecting problems with latest versions of common web applications (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, Prestashop), but will monitor the situation as 10.1 has stricter integrity checks (see https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-prepare-for-your-mysql-5-7-upgrade).
Servers currently running MySQL 5.6 will be moved to MariaDB 10.1 in later stage.

[Identified] We have opened an emergency maintenance window for our Shared Hosting platform.
During the maintenance window, all web servers in the Shared Hosting platform will be rebooted at least once.
This will inevitably involve a brief disruption for your website or application. If everything goes according to plan, we expect the disruption to last 5-15 minutes per server.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
