Percona XtraBackup 1.6.7

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 1.6.7 on December 20th, 2012 (Downloads are available here and from the Percona Software Repositories).

This release is purely composed of bug fixes and is the current stable release of Percona XtraBackup.

Bugs Fixed

xtrabackup_binary was not included in tar archive when streaming, instead it was written to the current directory. This could lead to a wrong xtrabackup binary being used when preparing backups created with the --stream or --remote-host options. Bugs fixed #723318 and #787988 (Stewart Smith).

FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK was not used when creating incremental backups, which could lead to inconsistent backups when updates to non-InnoDB tables or DDL statements on any tables occurred during the backup process. Bug fixed #771981 (Alexey Kopytov).

Option --safe-slave-backup was resulting in incorrect binlog info, because in some cases innobackupex confused the response from SHOW SLAVE STATUS with the one from SHOW MASTER STATUS. Bug fixed #977101 (Alexey Kopytov).

innodb_data_file_path was not written to backup-my.cnf, this was a regression introduced in XtraBackup 1.6.5. Bug fixed #983685 (Sergei Glushchenko).

Fixed spurious test suite failures with grep 2.10. Bug fixed #996483 (Alexey Kopytov).

When innobackupex was running with --apply-log, it was reading configuration from the server configuration file instead of backup-my.cnf in backup directory. Bug fixed #996493 (Sergei Glushchenko).

innobackupex could copy files to a wrong directory when merging an incremental backup to a full one. Bug fixed #1002688 (Alexey Kopytov).

XtraBackup binary was leaking file descriptors on --backup. This was fixed by reusing the existing file descriptor so no leak occurs. Bug fixed #713267 (Alexey Kopytov).

Other bugs fixed: bug #1021954 (Hrvoje Matijakovic).
