We announce next beta version of our xtrabackup tool.

Changelist includes:

– set innodb_fast_shutdown=1 on xtrabackup shutdown
– set innodb_write_io_threads=10 by default for fast buffer_pool flushing during recovery
– build xtrabackup with –with-extra-charsets=complex
Bug #357653: innobackupex-1.5.1 –copy-back fails
Bug #358194: 2nd-phase is very slow
Bug #358266: xtrabackup-0.5 dies with SEGV on bad command line arguments
Bug #359341: innobackupex still does not read defaults-file

You can download current binaries RPM for RHEL4 and RHEL5 (compatible with CentOS also), DEB for Debian/Ubuntu and tar.gz for Mac OS / Intel 64bit there:
By the same link you can find general .tar.gz with binaries which can be run on any modern Linux distribution.
By the same link you can download source code if you do not want to deal with bazaar and Launchpad.

The project lives on Launchpad : https://launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup and you can report bug to Launchpad bug system:
https://launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+filebug. The documentation is available on our Wiki

For general questions use our Pecona-discussions group, and for development question Percona-dev group.

    We have limited resources from both time and servers prospective so we concentrate on things that can cover most needs. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks for the update! FWIW, I maintain binary RPM packages of xtrabackup for a number of distributions on the openSUSE build service. I just commited the update to 0.6, binaries should be available shortly from this URL:


    Vadim, in the future, could you provide the source tarball for download as well? I had to extract it from the source RPM this time…

    Sure I can do source tarball.

    Can we use openSUSE build to build packages for RHEL and DEB ?
    I currently do it manually 🙂
