Percona Server and XtraBackup weekly news, February 12th

 | February 13, 2011 |  Posted In: MySQL, Percona Software


Here’s the second installment of the weekly Percona Server news roundup. There’s no team or personnel-related news, so let’s dive right in.

Percona Server news:

  • We are working hard on the final touches to Percona Server based on MySQL 5.5! Watch for a release announcement.
  • A user noticed that XtraDB doesn’t use native async I/O on Windows. This is a consequence of porting some patches that weren’t designed for Windows originally. Yasufumi promised to look at this later.

XtraBackup news:

  • In general, there was a lot of activity on writing test cases and fixing (mostly obscure or usability-related) bugs.
  • Peter proposed some optimizations for XtraBackup on systems with high I/O bandwidth.

It seems to be a “slow news week,” but there is a lot of work involved in some of those bullet points!
