Percona XtraBackup 2.1.7¶
This release is the current GA (Generally Available) stable release in the 2.1 series.
Percona XtraBackup has now been rebased on MySQL versions 5.1.73, 5.5.35, 5.6.15 and Percona Server versions 5.1.73-rel14.11 and 5.5.35-rel33.0.
After being rebased on MySQL 5.6.11 Percona XtraBackup has been affected by the upstream bug #69780. Fixed by rebasing Percona XtraBackup on MySQL 5.6.15 which contains a fix for the upstream bug. Bug fixed #1203669.
When creating an incremental backup with the changed page tracking feature available in Percona Server, innobackupex would fail if the server had the
ANSI_QUOTESSQL mode enabled. Bug fixed #1248331.
innobackupex --galera-infois specified and Percona XtraDB Cluster is using
GTIDreplication (version 5.6 only), innobackupex will execute
FLUSH BINARY LOGSand then carry the current binary log as indicated in
SHOW MASTER STATUSinto the backup set. Bug fixed #1250375.
Percona XtraBackup did not roll back prepared XA transactions when applying the log. Which was a regression introduced with the original port of Percona XtraBackup patches to 5.6. Fixed by restoring code that has been lost in the port. Bug fixed #1254227.
Percona XtraBackup now uses
libgcryptbuilt in randomization functions for setting the Initialization Vector. Bug fixed #1255300.
