Percona XtraBackup 2.3.10Percona announces the release of Percona XtraBackup 2.3.10 on November 29, 2017. Downloads are available from our download site or Percona Software Repositories.

Percona XtraBackup enables MySQL backups without blocking user queries, making it ideal for companies with large data sets and mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate long periods of downtime. Offered free as an open source solution, it drives down backup costs while providing unique features for MySQL backups.

This release is the current GA (Generally Available) stable release in the 2.3 series.

New Features

  • Packages are now available for Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful).
  • xbcrypt now can decrypt files in parallel by specifying the number of threads with the --encrypt-threads option.
  • Percona XtraBackup --copy-back option can now be used with --parallel option to copy the user data files in parallel (redo logs and system tablespaces are copied in the main thread).

Bugs Fixed:

  • Percona XtraBackup failed to build with GCC 7. Bug fixed #1681721.
  • Percona XtraBackup would crash while preparing the 5.5 backup with utf8_general50_ci collation. Bug fixed #1533722 (Fungo Wang).
  • Percona XtraBackup would crash if --throttle was used while preparing backups. Fixed by making this option available only during the backup process. Bug fixed #1691093.
  • Percona XtraBackup could get stuck if backups are taken with --safe-slave-backup option, while there were long-running queries. Bug fixed #1717158.
