New Features

Percona XtraBackup has been rebased on MySQL 5.6.24.

Bugs Fixed

Version check would crash innobackupex and abort the backup on CentOS 5. Bug fixed #PXB-174.

Percona XtraBackup could crash when preparing the backup taken on MySQL/Percona Server 5.5 if there were open temporary tables during the backup. Bug fixed #PXB-417 (Fungo Wang).

Percona XtraBackup would fail to prepare the backup if the xtrabackup_logfile was lager than 512GB. Bug fixed #PXB-421.

Fix for bug #PXB-166 was incomplete, due to setting wrong offset, last copied batch of log records was copied from wrong location. Bug fixed #PXB-426.

Percona XtraBackup now executes an extra FLUSH TABLES before executing FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK to potentially lower the impact from FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK. Bug fixed #PXB-684.

Regression introduced by fixing #PXB-422 in Percona XtraBackup 2.2.10 caused an error when taking an incremental backup from MariaDB 10. Bug fixed #PXB-723.

Percona XtraBackup now prints and stores the file based binlog coordinates in xtrabackup_binlog_info even though GTID is enabled. Bug fixed #PXB-724.

Percona XtraBackup doesn’t print warnings anymore during the prepare phase about missing tables when a filtering option (--databases, --tables, etc.) is provided. Bug fixed #PXB-1018 (Davi Arnaut).

Other bugs fixed: #PXB-420.

All of Percona’s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release can be found in the 2.2.11 milestone at Launchpad. Bugs can be reported on the launchpad bug tracker.
