Row size limit for Barracuda file format

Hi guys,
It seems that Barracuda file format has the same row size limit (65535) as Antelope has. MySQL (with UTF-8 database encoding) doesn't allow to create table with the followed statement:

CREATE TABLE a (a1 varchar(21845)) ROW_FORMAT=DYNAMIC;

and displays the followed message:

"Error Code: 1118. Row size too large. The maximum row size for the used table type, not counting BLOBs, is 65535. This includes storage overhead, check the manual. You have to change some columns to TEXT or BLOBs"

There are various posts (e.g., in the Internet claiming that Barracuda helps to get rid of this limit, but it doesn't work for me and I have no ideas why.

Is it a bug or am I missing something?

MySQL 5.6.10 CE.
