Percona XtraBackup, a free MySQL hot backup software that performs non-blocking backups for InnoDB and XtraDB databases, is now at version 2.0.5.

Highlights of Percona XtraBackup 2.0.5:

• New option --defaults-extra-file has been introduced. This option specifies from what extra file to read the default MySQL options before the standard defaults-file;
• In case of streaming backups, innobackupex would resume the XtraBackup process and then wait for it to finish before running UNLOCK TABLES;
• innobackupex error messages referencing the data directory have been extended to show the path of the data directory mentioned in the error message;
• Unnecessary long sleep() in innobackupex lead to FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK taking too long.

A complete list of changes can be found in the official announcement.
