Announcing Percona XtraBackup 1.6.6

 | April 4, 2012 |  Posted In: MySQL


I am happy to also announce the latest minor release in the Percona XtraBackup 1.6 series. We recognise that not everybody will want or be able to make the leap to our new major release, Percona XtraBackup 2.0 and so we’re also releasing Percona XtraBackup 1.6.6.

This is a minor release and source code and binaries can be downloaded from our downloads site. Our main APT and YUM repositories are now carrying Percona XtraBackup 2.0.0, so you won’t see 1.6.6 there.

We’re also keeping the documentation for the 1.6 series separate, which is now located at: https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/1.6/

Release notes for 1.6.6 are available in our online documentation.
