Percona Xtrabackup 1.6.2 released!
Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 1.6.2 on 25 July, 2011 (Downloads are available here and from thePercona Software Repositories).
This release is purely composed of bug fixes and is the current stable release of Percona Xtrabackup.
All of Percona’s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release and its development process can be found in the 1.6.2 milestone at Launchpad.
--version option has been added to the
xtrabackup binary for printing its version. Previously, the version was displayed only while executing the binary without arguments or performing a backup. Bug Fixed: #610614 (Alexey Kopytov).
As exporting tables should only be used with
set in the server, the variable is checked by
when using the
option. It will fail before applying the archived log without producing a potentially unusable backup. Bug Fixed: #758888
When creating an InnoDB with its own tablespace after taking a full backup, if the log files have been flushed, taking an incremental backup based on that full one would not contain the added table. This has been corrected by explicitly creating the tablespace before applying the delta files in such cases. Bug Fixed: #766607
In some cases,
ignored the specified
binary with the
option. Bug Fixed: #729497
Minor file descriptors leaks in error cases were fixed. Bug Fixed: #803718
Improvements and fixes on the XtraBackup Test Suite: #744303
Improvements and fixes on platform-specific distribution: #785556
Improvements and fixes on the XtraBackup Documentation: #745185
