Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.24, a new version of the online MySQL backup
tool, is now available for download from the My Oracle Support (MOS) website
as our latest GA release. This release will be available on eDelivery (OSDC)
after the next upload cycle. MySQL Enterprise Backup is a commercial
extension to the MySQL family of products.

MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.24 supports only the MySQL Server 8.0.24.
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.

A brief summary of the changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB)
since the previous version is given below.

Changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.24 (2021-04-20)

     * Functionality Added or Changed

     * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

     * The --rename option now works with both full and partial

          + If the --include-tables and --exclude-tables options
            are not used, all tables in the backup are restored,
            with the table selected by the --rename option
            renamed as specified.

          + If the --include-tables and --exclude-tables options
            are used, all tables selected by the two options
            together are restored, with the table selected by
            the --rename option renamed as specified.
       (Bug #31947026)

Bugs Fixed

     * There were sporadic failures of backups involving
       encrypted InnoDB tables with the error "The encrypted
       table . . . is not initialized" when repeated DDL
       operations on the tables took place during the backup
       operations. (Bug #32495740)

     * When backing up tables that used MySQL Enterprise
       Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), if no password was
       provided using the --encrypt-passord option, mysqlbackup
       quit unexpectedly. With this fix, mysqlbackup throws a
       proper error and aborts the operation in the situation.
       (Bug #32486697)

     * Backups failed when backing up tables that used the
       keyring_hashicorp plugin for InnoDB table encryption.
       (Bug #32284801)

     * mysqlbackup quit unexpectedly at the end of a backup to a
       tape using the NetWorker software. (Bug #32081275)

     * The --include-tables and --exclude-tables options were
       ignored during a restore of a TTS backup taken with full
       locking (i.e., with --use-tts=with-full-locking). (Bug

     * A restore of a compressed backup failed if the backed-up
       server did not use .ibd as the extension for InnoDB
       tablespaces. (Bug #31596356)

     * Backups for a server containing encrypted InnoDB tables
       failed when the server was of 64-bit and mysqlbackup was
       of 32-bit (or vice versa). It was due to the way keyring
       files were handled in the situation, which has been fixed
       by this patch. (Bug #29292085)
