Percona is glad to announce the second beta release towards Percona XtraBackup 2.0! We call this version 1.9.1 as we are using the 1.9.x version numbers for betas of 2.0 to clearly differentiate beta releases from the final 2.0 release. We do not recommend using Beta releases in production. Link to BETA version and Release notes.
If you are looking for a stable release for production use, check out our latest stable release (which was 1.6.5 at the time of writing).
This beta adds some really exciting features and bug fixes.
New features include:
--compress-threads‘) can be used together with parallel file copying (‘
--parallel‘). For example, ‘
--parallel=4 --compress --compress-threads=2‘ will create 4 IO threads that will read the data and pipe it to 2 compression threads.
tar4ibdfunctionality is replaced by functionality in the xtrabackup binary itself.
xbstreamutility is added
