I'll make three small edits when merging:
1) the mysql/ps version upgrade was 1.6.4, so I'll remove that paragraph
2) Clarify 826632 fix
3) clarify that it was Percona Server 5.1.60, not MySQL

19+|Percona| |XtraBackup| 1.6.5
22+Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 1.6.5 on 10 February, 2012 (Downloads are available `here <>`_ and from the :doc:`Percona Software Repositories </installation>`).
24+This release is purely composed of bug fixes and is the current stable release of |Percona| |Xtrabackup|.
26+In this release we now compile the |xtrabackup| binary against more recent MySQL and Percona Server versions. We now build against: MySQL 5.1.60, MySQL 5.5.19, Percona Server 5.1.60-13.1 and Percona Server 5.5.19-24.0 and get all the InnoDB bug fixes each of these releases contain. Using `xtrabackup` to back up older MySQL or Percona Server releases is still supported.
28+Bugs Fixed
31+ * While running an incremental backup through innobackupex, you could get an error when the script was attempting to copy all the MYI/MYD/...etc files if a table was removed during the process of copying each file. A helper subroutine - copy_if_exists has been added and it is used instead. Bug fixed: :bug:`924026` (*Lachlan Mulcahy*).
33+ * |tar4ibd| may crash on data files in a multi-file system tablespace configuration. Problem was that tar4ibd expected to read page size from the FSP header of each data file, which, in case of a multi-file system tablespace, is only available in the first file, but not in subsequent ones. That resulted in tar4ibd using a bogus page size, hence the crash. Fixed by enforcing UNIV_PAGE_SIZE as the page size for system tablespace files. Bug fixed: :bug:`891496` (*Alexey Kopytov*).
35+ * |xtrabackup| function used a global buffer to store incremental page deltas. That didn't work with parallel backups. Fixed by allocating a local buffer in functions that use it. Bug fixed: :bug:`826632` (*Alexey Kopytov*).
37+ * When preparing an incremental backups, |innobackupex| should copy all non-InnoDB files (including .frm files and non-InnoDB tables) to the full backup directory. Otherwise, any changes to .frm and/or non-InnoDB tables made between full and incremental backups lead to unusable backups. Bug fixed: :bug:`759701` (*Alexey Kopytov*).
39+ * When using --remote-host to a non-standard SSH port, the |xtrabackup| wasn't passing the correct port to both ssh and scp, which use different options for port number (-p vs -P). Bug fixed: :bug:`733658` (*Sergei Glushchenko*).
41+ * Unintentional change of innodb_version format in 5.1.60. caused fatal error in |xtrabackup|. Regexps used to detect innodb_version were updated. Bug fixed: :bug:`910206` (*Alexey Kopytov*).
43+ * When using |innobackupex| with --stream option it could place the output file in folder where non-root user does not have write access to. Bug fixed: :bug:`691090` (*Sergei Glushchenko*).
45+ * |tar4ibd| wasn't using O_DIRECT for per-table ``*.ibd`` when it should. Fixed |innobackupex| to use the same tar4ibd arguments for ibdata* and ``*.ibd``. Bug fixed: :bug:`925354` (*Alexey Kopytov*).
47+ * Linux binary tarball now includes COPYING. Bug fixed: :bug:`914622` (*Ignacio Nin*).
49+ * Fixed bug bug:`711207` |xtrabackup|: Error: write to stdout. (*Sergei Glushchenko*).
