MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.12 supports only the MySQL Server 8.0.
For any earlier versions of the MySQL server 5.7, please use
MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.1 and for MySQL Server 5.6 and 5.5, please
use MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.12.

the MySQL Enterprise Backup User's Guide (Version 8.0.12)

A brief summary of the changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB)
version 8.0.12 is given below.

Changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.12 (2018-07-27)

     * Functionality Added or Changed

     * Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

     * Important Change: Starting from release 8.0.12, the
       storage engine of the mysql.backup_history table on a
       backed-up server has switched from CSV to InnoDB. For a
       MySQL 8.0.12 server that has its database restored from a
       backup of an earlier server version, MySQL Enterprise
       Backup 8.0.12 automatically migrates the table when it
       performs its first backup task on the server. See After
       restoring an earlier backup to MySQL 8.0.12 or later
       for the new user privileges required by mysqlbackup for the
       mandatory migration to happen.

     * Important Change: When working with a Group Replication
       setup, mysqlbackup now makes the backup history
       available to all members of the server group by making
       sure that the backup_history table is updated on a
       primary node after each mysqlbackup operation.
       With the implementation of this feature, the new user
       privilege of SELECT on
       performance_schema.replication_group_members is now
       required by mysqlbackup to work with any server, even
       when it does not belong to a Group Replication setup. See
       Grant MySQL Privileges to Backup Administrator
       for details.

     * Version information for mysqlbackup is now printed to the
       stdout instead of the stderr stream when the --version or
       --help option is used. (Bug #27253989)

     * OAuth is now supported for Oracle Cloud Storage client
       authentication. Two new options, --cloud-storage-url and
       --cloud-oauth-token, have been introduced for the
       purpose. See Cloud Storage Options
       for details.

Bugs Fixed

     * Backups for a server failed when it had ANSI_QUOTES in
       its values for sql_mode. (Bug #27939774)

     * The maximum value that could be set for the
       --safe-slave-backup-timeout option was 2700 (seconds),
       which automatically replaced any larger value. With this
       fix, there is no longer a maximum limition, even though a
       high value is not recommended; see the description of
       --safe-slave-backup-timeout for details. (Bug #27883020)

     * Restoring an incrementation backup on top of a data
       directory restored using a compressed backup failed. It
       was because mysqlbackup did not set is_compressed=0 in
       the backup_variables.txt file inside the restored data
       directory. (Bug #27787988)

     * When mysqlbackup performed sanity checks on InnoDB
       tablespaces and found a space ID mismatch for an FSP
       header and a page header, the name of the problematic
       tablespace was not given in the error report. (Bug

     * If an ALTER TABLE
       statement was executed on the server before an
       incremental backup was taken, a server restored with the
       backup on which the incremental backup was applied (using
       the apply-incremental-backup command) could not be
       started, as the .ibd file of the altered table was
       missing in the restored data. (Bug #27735134)

     * After a server has been restored using an incremental
       backup created with the --incremental-with-redo-log-only
       option, it could not be started. (Bug #27722525)

     * mysqlbackup issued a warning whenever the number of files
       specified in the system variable innodb_data_file_path of
       the server to be backed up exceeded 100. With this fix, a
       warning is issued only if the number of InnoDB data files
       to be opened exceeds the number specified by the system
       variable innodb_open_files. (Bug #27701402)

     * Backups failed for a server that had been started with a
       value for --innodb_log_file_size different from the one
       the server was initiated with. (Bug #27571663)

     * An apply-incremental-backup operation failed when
       individual tablespaces with relative file paths were
       involved. (Bug #27278876)

     * In a Group Replication
       setting for MySQL servers, when changes were made
       to one group member and a backup was taken on another,
       the relay log for the replication applier was missing
       from the backup, so that the restored server could not be
       started. (Bug #25534078)

     * When a compressed backup was restored with the
       --innodb_data_home_dir option pointing to a restore
       location outside of the data directory, .ibd files were
       still being copied into the data directory, causing an
       exception to be thrown at the attempt to start the
       restored server. (Bug #24826986)
