Offered free as an open source solution, Percona XtraBackup drives down backup costs while providing unique features for MySQL backups.

New features:
Bugs Fixed:
  • xtrabackup would hang with Waiting for master thread to be suspended message when backup was being prepared. Bug fixed #1671437.
  • xtrabackup would fail to prepare the backup with 6th page is not initialized message in case server didn’t properly initialize the page. Bug fixed #1671722.
  • xbstream could run out of file descriptors while extracting the backup which contains many tables. Bug fixed #1690823.
  • When a table was created with the DATA DIRECTORY option xtrabackup would back up the .frm and .isl files, but not the .ibd file. Due to the missing .ibd files backup then could not be restored. Bug fixed #1701736.
  • Percona XtraBackup incorrectly determined use of master_auto_postion on a slave, and thus generated invalid xtrabackup_slave_info file. Bug fixed #1705193.
  • Percona XtraBackup will now print a warning if it encounters unsupported storage engine. Bug fixed #1394493.
  • Percona XtraBackup would crash while backing up MariaDB 10.2.x with --ftwrl-* options. Bug fixed #1704636.
  • xtrabackup --slave-info didn’t write the correct information into xtrabackup_slave_info file when multi-source replication was used. Bug fixed #1551634.
  • Along with xtrabackup_checkpints file, xtrabackup now copies xtrabackup_info file into directory specified by --extra-lsndir option. Bug fixed #1600656.
  • GTID position was not recorded when --binlog-info option was set to AUTO. Bug fixed #1651505.

    > To avoid issues with MySQL 5.7 skipping redo log for DDL Percona XtraBackup has implemented three new options

    What kind of issues? 5.7 only? Where can we read more about it? Some details would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Backup of MySQL 5.7 would abort if there were DDLs. This feature adds an option to block DDLs. You can find more information in the original bug report.
