Percona XtraBackup 1.9.2 (2.0 BETA)

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 1.9.2 on 28th March 2012. Downloads are available from our download site here. For this BETA release, we will not be making APT and YUM repositories available, just base deb and RPM packages.

This is a BETA quality release and is not inteded for production. If you want a high quality, Generally Available release, you should use the current Stable version - currently 1.6.5 in the 1.6 series at the time of writing.

The 1.9.x version numbers will be used to distinguish between pre-release versions of Percona XtraBackup 2.0 and the Generally Available final release.

Package name has been changed from xtrabackup to full product name, percona-xtrabackup.

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

This release contains all of the features and bug fixes in Percona XtraBackup 1.9.1, plus the following:

Bugs Fixed

  • 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).
  • In some cases if Percona XtraBackup had discovered corruption it wouldn’t say which file it is. Now it mentions the file name along with the error. Bug fixed #766033 (Sergei Glushchenko).
  • Fixed posix_fadvise bug #925441 (Alexey Kopytov).
