Percona Distribution for PostgreSQL (11.13, 12.8 and 13.4)
On September 9, 2021, we released updates of Percona Distribution for PostgreSQL. It provides the best and most critical enterprise components from the open-source community, in a single distribution, designed and tested to work together. Patroni, pgBackRest, pg_repack, and pgaudit are amongst the innovative components we utilize.
Percona XtraBackup 8.0.26-18.0
On September 2, 2021, we released Percona XtraBackup 8.0.26-18.0. It enables MySQL backups without blocking user queries, making it ideal for companies with large data sets and mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate long periods of downtime. Along with some bug fixes, this release features some improvements, including xbcloud should retry on an error and utilize incremental backoff (Thanks to Baptiste Mille-Mathias for reporting this issue), and removal of the obsolete LOCKLESS binary log functionality since the
performance_schema.log_status table is now used to get the log information on all the storages without locking them.
