New Features:

pt-agent has been replaced by percona-agent. More information on percona-agent can be found in the Introducing the 3-Minute MySQL Monitor blogpost.
pt-slave-restart now supports MySQL 5.6 global transaction IDs.
pt-table-checkum now has new –plugin option which is similar to pt-online-schema-change –plugin
Bugs Fixed:

Fixed bug 1254233: pt-mysql-summary was showing blank InnoDB section for 5.6 because it was using have_innodb variable which was removed in MySQL 5.6.
Fixed bug 965553: pt-query-digest didn’t fingerprint true/false literals correctly.
Fixed bug 1286250: pt-online-schema-change was requesting password twice.
Fixed bug 1295667: pt-deadlock-logger was logging incorrect timestamp because tool wasn’t aware of the time-zones.
Fixed bug 1304062: when multiple tables were specified with pt-table-checksum –ignore-tables, only one of them would be ignored.
Fixed bug : pt-show-grant –ask-pass option was asking for password in STDOUT instead of STDERR where it could be seen.
