Percona XtraBackup for MySQL Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 2.1.2 for MySQL on May 18, 2013. Downloads are available from our download site here and Percona Software Repositories.

This release fixes number of high-priority bugs since version 2.1 became GA. It’s advised to upgrade your latest 2.1 version to 2.1.2. This release is the latest stable release in the 2.1 series.

Bugs Fixed:

  • Using Perl’s DBD::MySQL package for server communication instead of spawning the MySQL command line client introduced a regression which caused innobackupex –galera-info option to fail. Bug fixed #1180672.
  • The format of xtrabackup_galera_info was missing the ‘:’ separator between the values of wsrep_local_state_uuid and wsrep_last_committed. Bug fixed #1181222.
  • innobackupex automatic version detection did not work correctly for latest Percona Server and MySQL 5.1 releases which could cause innobackupex to fail. Bugs fixed #1181092, #1181099 and #1180905.
  • When backing up a server that is not a replication slave with the innobackupex –slave-info option, innobackupex failed with a fatal error. Replaced the fatal error with a diagnostic message about innobackupex –slave-info being ignored in such a case. Bug fixed #1180662.
  • Low values for wait_timeout on the server could cause server to close the connection while backup is being taken. Fixed by setting the bigger value for wait_timeout option on the server to prevent server from closing connections if the global wait_timeout value is set too low. Bug fixed #1180922.

Other bug fixes: bug fixed #1177182.

Release notes with all the bugfixes for Percona XtraBackup 2.1.2 are available in our online documentation. Bugs can be reported on the launchpad bug tracker.
