v98, mariadb 10.5, and remote databases

Before I go ahead and update MariaDB from 10.3 to 10.5 can someone please confirm that 10.5 works correctly with v98 when using remote databases? Manage MySQL® Profiles still shows it only supports :
  • MySQL versions 5.6, 5.7, and 8.0.
  • MariaDB versions 10.1, 10.2, and 10.3.
It was my understanding that MariaDB 10.4 and 10.5 now work correctly with v98 - it was something myself and many others have been waiting a long time for, but I just want to confirm it works with remote databases as well before proceeding based on the documentation linked. Thanks!
