Announcing the availability of the newest version of MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) v4.0.0, the online MySQL backup tool.
You can now download it from the My Oracle Support (MOS) website as the latest GA release. This release will be available on eDelivery (OSDC) after the next upload cycle.
MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) is a commercial extension to the MySQL family of products.
Please do note that MySQL Enterprise Backup v4.0.0. backs up only MySQL server 5.7.
For all previous versions of server i.e. 5.5 and 5.6 please continue to use the MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.12 series.
MEB 4.0. ensures that the Server 5.7 enhancements like the new 32 and 64 K page sizes and general table spaces can also be backed up.
There was a long standing request to store the Tape ID when backing up using the SBT interface. This request is finally supported using MEB 4.0.
