--compress[=LEVEL]--compress and --compress-level=LEVEL

The former single option is split into two, with an explicit option to enable compression.

--no-timestamp--with-timestamp

The default is reversed: no timestamp subdirectory is created. To preserve the former behavior, specify --with-timestamp to put the backup data in a subdirectory named based on the backup timestamp.

--backup-dir=PATH

New option.

--backup-image=IMAGE

New option.

--only-innodb

New option.

New option.

--databases-list-file=LIST

New option.

--comments

--comments-file=PATH

--copy-back

copy-back

This option is promoted to a mode of operation. Instead of specifying a configuration file and a path to the backup data, now you specify the location of the backup data with the --backup-dir option, and the configuration parameters are read from your default configuration file.

--apply-log

apply-log

This option is promoted to a mode of operation. Instead of specifying a configuration file, now you specify the location of the backup data with the --backup-dir option, and the configuration parameters are read from the backup-my.cnf configuration file that mysqlbackup creates in that directory.

--apply-log --incremental

apply-incremental-backup

This former combination of options is promoted to a mode of operation. Instead of supplying the paths of two user-created configuration files, you specify the location of the incremental and full backup directories with the --incremental-backup-dir and --backup-dir options. The configuration parameters are read from the backup-my.cnf files that mysqlbackup creates in those directories.
