Support for MySQL 5.7

Has there been any notification for XtraBackup versions that support MySQL 5.7, Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Same question here. Do anyone know when it would be released?

This is something I’d like to know as well.

The source code for version 2.4 which supports 5.7 appears to be ready: https://github.com/percona/percona-xtrabackup/tree/2.4

But, I’m not sure if it is production ready. It is not fully released yet.

Anyone have an idea of how stable 2.4 is?
