This release fixes number of high-priority bugs since version 2.1 became GA. It’s advised to upgrade your latest 2.1 version to 2.1.2. This release is the latest stable release in the 2.1 series.
- Using Perl’s
DBD::MySQLpackage for server communication instead of spawning the MySQL command line client introduced a regression which caused innobackupex –galera-info option to fail. Bug fixed #1180672.
- The format of
xtrabackup_galera_infowas missing the ‘:’ separator between the values of
wsrep_last_committed. Bug fixed #1181222.
- innobackupex automatic version detection did not work correctly for latest Percona Server and MySQL 5.1 releases which could cause innobackupex to fail. Bugs fixed #1181092, #1181099 and #1180905.
- When backing up a server that is not a replication slave with the innobackupex –slave-info option, innobackupex failed with a fatal error. Replaced the fatal error with a diagnostic message about innobackupex –slave-info being ignored in such a case. Bug fixed #1180662.
- Low values for
wait_timeouton the server could cause server to close the connection while backup is being taken. Fixed by setting the bigger value for
wait_timeoutoption on the server to prevent server from closing connections if the global
wait_timeoutvalue is set too low. Bug fixed #1180922.
Other bug fixes: bug fixed #1177182.
