Percona XtraBackup 1.6.6

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 1.6.6 on April 4th, 2012 (Downloads are available here and from the Percona Software Repositories).

Option –remote-host for innobackupex has been deprecated in favor of the –stream option and it will be removed in future versions.

This release is purely composed of bug fixes and is the current stable release of Percona XtraBackup.

Bugs Fixed

  • innobackupex now includes fast-checksums into generated my.cnf. Bug fixed #733651 (Sergei Glushchenko).
  • In MySQL 5.1.57 a new assertion was added as a part of the fix for bug #59641. That assertion wasn’t applicable when doing recovery with –apply-log-only option, and it was failing after successfully applying the log. Fix was implemented by bypassing that code. Fixed bug #938594 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • When using parallel backup option in xtrabackup, backups could fail with “Operating system error number 17”. Bug fixed: #900175 (Alexey Kopytov).
