Percona XtraBackup 2.3.4¶
This release is the current GA (Generally Available) stable release in the 2.3 series.
Percona XtraBackup didn’t respect variables stored in
backup-my.cnfunless it was specified. One needed to specify
--defaults-file=backup-my.cnffor options to be respected. Bug fixed #PXB-450.
When backup was taken on MariaDB 10 with GTID enabled, Percona XtraBackup didn’t store
xtrabackup_slave_infobut logged it only to
STDERR. Bug fixed #PXB-715.
Percona XtraBackup was silently skipping extra arguments. Bug fixed #PXB-747 (Fungo Wang).
Percona XtraBackup refuses client connecting to server if it uses old (pre-4.1.1) protocol. To disable this check in order to allow backing up servers with legacy passwords still set, new
xtrabackup --skip-secure-authoption has been implemented. Bug fixed #PXB-1019.
