- Non-default value for href="http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-server/5.6/scalability/innodb_io.html#innodb_log_block_size">innodb_log_block_size variable would cause assertion when preparing the backup. Bug fixed rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+bug/1391216">#1391216.
- When Percona XtraBackup would run
FLUSH ENGINE LOGSduring the backup process on GTID master, command was recorded to the slave’s binary log as well, which lead to inconsistency between master and slave. Fixed by adding the
FLUSH ENGINE LOGSto avoid interfering with binary log and inconsistency with coordinates. Bug fixed rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+bug/1394632">#1394632.
- Exporting tables was inefficient when backup contained a large (and unrelated) change buffer. Bug fixed rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+bug/1366065">#1366065 (Davi Arnaut).
- innobackupex was printing the GTID even if the GTID mode was disabled which could cause confusion since it wasn’t incrementing. Now it prints only GTID when GITD mode is enabled and when GTID mode is disabled it prints only filename and position. innobackupex still prints GTID, filename and positions if MariaDB server is being backed up.
