Changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.29 (2022-04-26, General Availability)

MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.29 is the latest release for MySQL Enterprise Backup. It only supports MySQL Server 8.0.29. For earlier versions of MySQL 8.0, use the MySQL Enterprise Backup version with the same version number as the server. For MySQL server 5.7, please use MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.1.

Functionality Added or Changed

  • The log-bin and relay_log options can now be specified in the [mysqld] section of the server configuration file supplied with the --defaults-file option during a restore operation. However, the values specified that way take lower precedence than the values specified for the options in the [mysqlbackup] section, and values given at the command line override any values given in the configuration file. See Configuration Files and Parameters for more information on the use of configuration files. (Bug #33375015)

Bugs Fixed

  • For Windows installations using the .msi installer, the missing INFO_BIN and INFO_SRC files have been added to the docs directory. (Bug #33842889)

  • Restoring a table from a TTR backup failed with a "Schema mismatch" error when the default row format of the source and target servers of the backup were different. With this fix, a ROW_FORMAT table option is always included in the CREATE TABLE statement used to restore a table, so that the original row format is always used.


    With the possible addition of the ROW_FORMAT option to a table that did not have it before, the CHECKSUM TABLE statement may yield different results for the original and restored tables, so the checksum is no longer a reliable way to check if the original and restored tables are identical.
