The previous versions of XAMPP would include MySQL. Now they include MariaDB. I used to use the previous versions but now I upgraded XAMPP and it has MariaDB.

So what exactly is the difference between them? Or are they both similar?

What changes should I make in my programming approach?

Should I switch over to the previous version?

MariaDB Server is licensed as GPLv2, while MySQL has two licensing options - GPLv2 (for Community edition) and Enterprise. 

The main difference between the two licenses for MySQL is the available features and support. While you receive the full-featured package when using MariaDB, that's not the case with MySQL.
