Percona Server and XtraBackup Weekly News, April 11th

Last week was rather less newsworthy in Percona Server land, as we spent a lot of time preparing for the MySQL Conference and Collaborate, and Vadim was on vacation. One interesting tidbit: I wrote some scripts analyze our log files and found that we were massively under-counting the number of downloads for Percona Server, due to failing to count all the variations of package names. In fact, we have over 250k downloads for Percona Server. (I’ve requested the dev team to be very careful with consistent naming in the future.) In Percona Server news, we continued polishing up the 5.5 release, which should be ready to download very soon. In XtraBackup news, we should release XtraBackup 1.6 with a large list of new features and improvements very soon, and we worked more on Drizzle support for XtraBackup, exchanging lots of merge proposals with the Drizzle development team.
