Percona is glad to announce our first Beta release of what will become Percona XtraBackup 2.0. We’re releasing this beta to encourage testing of our upcoming 2.0 release of Percona XtraBackup.
Since this is a beta release, you should not rely on it for production workloads – use the stable 1.6 series of Percona XtraBackup instead.
In this beta we’re proud to add:
- support for Galera replication and the Percona XtraDB Cluster Alpha.
- the Documentation is now bundled with the source tree and under a CC Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 Generic license.
- support for building with debug InnoDB (only for very advanced users)
Binaries and source tarballs can be downloaded from our download site: https://www.percona.com/downloads/XtraBackup/BETA/1.9.0/ . As this is a BETA release, we do not recommend it for production use. As always, all our work is done on the Percona XtraBackup launchpad site and the up-to-the-minute bzr trees can be pulled from Launchpad.
