Percona XtraBackup 2.4.0-rc1
Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 2.4.0-rc1 on
February 8th 2016. Downloads are available from our download site and from apt
and yum repositories.
This is a Release Candidate quality release and it is not intended for
production. If you want a high quality, Generally Available release, the
current Stable version should be used (currently 2.3.3 in the 2.3 series at the
time of writing).
Percona XtraBackup has implemented basic support for MySQL 5.7 and
Percona Server 5.7.
Backed-up table data could not be recovered if backup was taken while running
OPTIMIZE TABLE (bug #1541763) or
ALTER TABLE ... TABLESPACE (bug
#1532878) on that table.
Compact Backups currently don’t work due to bug #1192834.
