We announce next version of our xtrabackup tool and we consider it stable enough to put label RC on it.
– use O_DIRECT by default for handling InnoDB files
– use posix fadvise call to disable OS caching of copying files
– disable recovery of double buffer
Also we added binary builds for FreeBSD 7 64bit platform
You can download current binaries (64bit) RPM for RHEL4 and RHEL5 (compatible with CentOS also), DEB for Debian/Ubuntu, tar.gz for Mac OS / Intel and .tar.gz for FreeBSD 7:
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.
