We added some new features to our backup tool, namely:
- Now we can handle log file taken during backup with size exceeding 4GB, it may happen if backup takes too long and you have a lot of updates on InnoDB tables
- Progress meter during recovery step, now you can see what percentage of log file was handled
InnoDB: Doing recovery: scanned up to log sequence number 1316 3688693248 (34 %)
InnoDB: Doing recovery: scanned up to log sequence number 1316 4113366528 (68 %)
InnoDB: Doing recovery: scanned up to log sequence number 1316 4117548544 (68 %)
Also we did extensive testing and fixed bugs, so now we consider current state as feature complete and with beta-release stability.
