Percona XtraBackup 2.0.6¶
This release is the current GA (Generally Available) stable release in the 2.0 series.
Percona XtraBackup has implemented basic support for MySQL 5.6, Percona Server 5.6 and MariaDB 10.0. Basic support means that these versions are are
recognized by Percona XtraBackup, and that backup/restore works as long as no
5.6-specific features are used (such as
tablespaces, separate undo tablespace, 5.6-style buffer pool dump files).
Individual InnoDB tablespaces with size less than 1MB were extended to 1MB on the backup prepare operation. This led to a large increase in disk usage in cases when there are many small InnoDB tablespaces. Bug fixed #950334 (Daniel Frett, Alexey Kopytov).
Fixed the issue that caused databases corresponding to inaccessible datadir subdirectories to be ignored by Percona XtraBackup without warning or error messages. This was happening because InnoDB code silently ignored datadir subdirectories it could not open. Bug fixed #664986 (Alexey Kopytov).
Fix for the bug #711166 introduced a regression that caused individual
partition backups to fail when used with
innobackupex --include option in
innobackupex or the
xtrabackup --tables option in xtrabackup. Bug fixed
#1130627 (Alexey Kopytov).
innobackupex didn’t add the
file-per-table setting for
table-independent backups. Fixed by making Percona XtraBackup auto-enable
innodb_file_per_table when the
innobackupex --export option is used. Bug
fixed #930062 (Alexey Kopytov).
Under some circumstances Percona XtraBackup could fail on a backup prepare
innodb_flush_method=O_DIRECT. Bug fixed #1055547 (Alexey
Percona XtraBackup has improved the error reporting for unrecognized server versions. Bug fixed #1087219 (Alexey Kopytov).
Fixed the missing
rpm dependency for Perl
Time::HiRes package that
caused innobackupex to fail on minimal CentOS installations. Bug fixed
#1121573 (Alexey Bychko).
Unnecessary debug messages have been removed from the Percona XtraBackup output. Bug fixed #1131084 (Alexey Kopytov).
