I’m proud to announce the GA release of version 2.1 of Percona Toolkit. Percona Toolkit is the essential suite of administrative tools for MySQL.
This is the third blog post in the series of blog posts leading up to the talk comparing the optimizer enhancements in MySQL 5.6 and MariaDB 5.5. This blog post is targeted at the join related optimizations introduced in the optimizer.

Now let me briefly explain these optimizations.
I’m really excited to today announce the first GA (Generally Available; i.e. stable) release of Percona XtraBackup 2.0. We have worked hard since our last major release on improving the reliability and user experience of Percona XtraBackup as well as adding features to make it better suited to more environments.
The 2.0.0 release contains no changes from the last beta (1.9.2), only the version number has changed.

I am happy to also announce the latest minor release in the Percona XtraBackup 1.6 series. We recognise that not everybody will want or be able to make the leap to our new major release, Percona XtraBackup 2.0 and so we’re also releasing Percona XtraBackup 1.6.6.
This is a minor release and source code and binaries can be downloaded from our downloads site. Our main APT and YUM repositories are now carrying Percona XtraBackup 2.0.0, so you won’t see 1.6.6 there.
