XtraBackup 1.3b

I have installed the newer version of XtraBackup, a tool for online backup of MySQL databases. The first tests show that a lot of errors were fixed in this, not yet released, version. Version 1.2 failed to make incremental backups on one of my servers, could not restore full backup on another, and segfaulted during full backup on the third one. 1.3b makes copies of all three and is able to restore them flawlessly.

A 233GB database was copied in 2:15'. I highly recommend you upgrade your installation of Xtrabackup to v.1.3b and to test it on production servers.

Download page at is here: XtraBackup-1.3-beta. I usually download x86_64 binary files for Linux here.
