Run Ubuntu and want to try new features of Percona XtraBackup? Well, now you can. We have a Personal Package Archive (PPA) percona-daily/percona-xtrabackup. Every time code is pushed to our main source code repository, the PPA is updated.
We are currently building for Ubuntu lucid (10.04LTS), Precise (12.04), Quantal (12.10) and Raring (13.04).
To add the repository to your Ubuntu system, simply run:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:percona-daily/percona-xtrabackup
You will now have daily builds of Percona XtraBackup available to install.
Currently, we are in the process of working on the 2.1.4 release. The daily builds currently include some code that is destined for 2.1.4 including: fixes for bugs: 1190716, 1192347, 1190610, 1177206, 1187071, 1197644, 1182995 along with improvements to FLUSH TABLES WITH WRITE LOCK, improvements to the test suite and updates to Debian/Ubuntu packaging.
