Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 2.1.0 for MySQL beta on April 22, 2013. Downloads are available from our download site here. For this BETA release, we will not be making APT and YUM repositories available, just base deb and RPM packages
This is an BETA quality release and is not intended for production. If you want a high quality, generally available release, the current stable version should be used (currently 2.0.6 in the 2.0 series at the time of writing).
This release contains all of the features and bug fixes in Percona XtraBackup for MySQL 2.0.6, plus the following:
FATAL. Bug fixed #1116177.
SHOW MASTER STATUSto obtain binlog file and position. This could trigger a bug if the server being backed up was standalone server (neither master nor slave in replication) and binlog information wasn’t available. Fixed by not creating
xtrabackup_binlog_infofile when binlog isn’t available. Bug fixed #1168513.
xtrabackup.cc. Bug fixed #1162765.
