 | June 7, 2012 |  Posted In: MySQL, Percona Software, XtraDB Cluster


I am happy to announce next version Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.24, which is mostly jump to the current version of Percona Server.

It includes an important bug fix:

Binaries are available from downloads area or from our repositories.

For this release we provide binaries for Ubuntu 12.04.

If you want to know more how to migrate to XtraDB Cluster, you can check our recent webinar Migrating To Percona XtraDB Cluster.

This is an General Availability release. We did our best to eliminate bugs and problems during alpha and beta testing release, but this is a software, so bugs are expected. If you encounter them, please report to our bug tracking system.

  • Great news, any timeframe on the fix for the 64bit version of Ubuntu 12.04?

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    percona-xtradb-cluster-server-5.5 : Depends: percona-xtradb-cluster-galera but it is not installable
    Depends: percona-xtrabackup (>= 1.9.0) but it is not installable

  • Hi Vadim,

    Does this version of Percona XtraDB Cluster includes fixes released by Codership with Galera 2.1 (https://launchpad.net/galera/2.x/23.2.1) on May 19th please ?
    For MySQL-wsrep patches 23.6 (https://launchpad.net/codership-mysql/5.5/5.5.23-23.6), I think the response is now yes due to the 23.6 present in the version number (https://www.percona.com/redir/downloads/Percona-XtraDB-Cluster/5.5.24-23.6/binary/linux/i686/Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-5.5.24-23.6.342.Linux.i686.tar.gz) ?
    By the way, do you have any detailed changelog available publicly somewhere for each new version of Percona XtraDB Cluster please ?



  • Laurent,

    We updated to latest Galera revision just before release, so it includes all May changes.

    We do not have a detailed release notes for XtraDB Cluster, as at this moment it is mainly changes logs from upstream:
    MySQL, Percona Server, Galera, MySQL-wsrep. But I see a need to compile it all together.

  • Hi Vadim,

    Thanks for these informations.
    Yes, a Changelog for XtraDB Cluster would be great 😉
