MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0.0 has been released
Dear MySQL users,
MySQL Enterprise Backup v4.0.0, a new version of the online MySQL backup tool, is now available for download from the My Oracle Support (MOS) website as our latest GA release. This release will be available on eDelivery (OSDC) after the next upload cycle. MySQL Enterprise Backup is a commercial extension to the MySQL family of products.
MySQL Enterprise Backup v4.0.0 supports only the MySQL server 5.7.9 and above. For any earlier versions of the MySQL server, please use MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.12 instead.
A brief summary of the changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) version 4.0.0 is given below.
Changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0.0 (2015-10-21)
Functionality Added or Changed
* MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0 supports MySQL server 5.7, on which:
+ Tables in general tablespaces (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.htm l#glos_general_tablespace <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.html#glos_general_tablespace>) can be backed up and restored.
+ InnoDB tables with page sizes (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.htm l#glos_page_size <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.html#glos_page_size>) of 32 and 64K can be backed up and restored.
+ Partitioned tables can be selectively backed up or restored using the --use-tts, --include-tables, and --exclude-tables options. See What's New in MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0? (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/4.0/en/ what-is-new.html <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/4.0/en/what-is-new.html>) for details.
* MySQL Enterprise Backup now writes tape information onto the MySQL server when a backup is made to a tape using the System Backup to Tape (SBT) API. See What's New in MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0? (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/4.0/en/ what-is-new.html <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/4.0/en/what-is-new.html>) for details.
* When restoring an incremental backup image, if the binary log in the backup was larger than 16MB, the restored binary log would become corrupted. (Bug #20915642)
* When the --password option was used without an argument with the copy-back-and-apply-log command, mysqlbackup did not prompt user for a password, but either took the password from the defaults files, or took it to be an empty string when no value was specified in the defaults files. (Bug #20915642)
