     *  MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0 supports MySQL server 5.7, on
        which:

          + Tables in general tablespaces
            (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.htm
l#glos_general_tablespace <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.html#glos_general_tablespace>) can be backed up and
            restored.

          + InnoDB tables with page sizes
            (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.htm
l#glos_page_size <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/glossary.html#glos_page_size>) of 32 and 64K can be backed up and
            restored.

          + Partitioned tables can be selectively backed up or
            restored using the --use-tts, --include-tables, and
            --exclude-tables options.

what-is-new.html <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/4.0/en/what-is-new.html>) for details.

     * MySQL Enterprise Backup now writes tape information onto
       the MySQL server when a backup is made to a tape using
       the System Backup to Tape (SBT) API. See What's New in
       MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0?
       (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/4.0/en/
what-is-new.html <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/4.0/en/what-is-new.html>) for details.

   Bugs Fixed

     * When restoring an incremental backup image, if the binary
       log in the backup was larger than 16MB, the restored
       binary log would become corrupted. (Bug #20915642)

     * When the --password option was used without an argument
       with the copy-back-and-apply-log command, mysqlbackup did
       not prompt user for a password, but either took the
       password from the defaults files, or took it to be an
       empty string when no value was specified in the defaults
       files. (Bug #20915642)
