Percona Toolkit version 2.1.6 released

The Percona Toolkit team is happy to announce the release of Percona Toolkit version 2.1.6. This is the sixth stable release in the 2.1 series, and primarily a bug-fix release; We suggest that users upgrade to the latest version of the tools.

The complete list of changes is on the Launchpad milestone for 2.1.6, but here are some highlights the release:

  • pt-online-schema-change can now handle column renames
  • pt-online-schema-change’s DELETE trigger no longer fails when altering a primary key
  • pt-stalk got a plugin hook interface
  • pt-show-grant support for column-level grants
  • pt-table-checksum will warn if slaves have a differing binlog_format

Remember that if you need help with Percona Toolkit, we provide flat-fee, unlimited support services with rapid 24×7 response on a commercial basis via our Support contracts. Links to the downloads, documentation, bug reports, mailing list, and more are available from the Percona Toolkit project homepage.

    Your link to the launchpad milestone doesn’t point to the 2.1.6 releases.

    I wrote a review (in German) about Percona Toolkit in the sight of a web-developer. Hope some of you might find it useful:,-Teil-1.html
