I would like to add that the restricted Burnside problem is equivalent to the fact that a finitely generated profinite group of finite exponent is finite. Now, this was of course proved by Zelmanov. But he also proved a stronger result: every finitely generated compact Hausorff torsion group is finite, see Zelʹmanov, E. I., On periodic compact groups, Israel J. Math. 77 (1992), no. 1-2, 83--95. In particular, every finitely generated torsion profinite group is finite, i.e. the Burnside problem is true for profinite groups.
BTW, Zelmanov has a more general result regarding when a pro-p group is finite (I don't remember now the exact formulation, **Ignore:** it should be something like all generators have finite order and the associated graded Lie algbera satisfies an identity), however, he only published a sketch of the proof which I think is in E. Zelmanov, Nil Rings and Periodic Groups, The Korean Mathematical Society Lecture Notes in Mathematics, Korean Mathematical Society, Seoul, 1992.

**Edit:** I was asked about this recently. So I really had to search my memory and the literature. This is what I have found: I think I read about the result in Shalev’s chapter in New Horizons in Pro-$p$ Groups (Theorem 2.1 and Corollary 2.2). However, the original reference is Zelmanov’s paper in Groups ’93 Galway St. Andrews Volume 2, LMS Lecture Note Series 212.

Here it is:
Let $G$ be a group. Write $(x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_i)$ for the left normalized commutator of the elements $x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_i \in G$. Let $D_k$ be the subgroup of $G$ generated by $(x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_i)^{p^j}$, where $ip^j \geq k$ and we go over all $x_1,x_2\ldots,x_i \in G$. Let $L_p(G)$ be the Lie subalgebra generated by $D_1/D_2$ in the Lie algebra $\oplus_{i \geq 1} D_i/D_{i+1}$. We say that $G$ is **Infinitesimally PI (IP)** if $L_p(G)$ satisfies a polynomial identity (PI). Zelmanov proved the following theorem:

**Theorem:** If $G$ is a finitely generated, residually-$p$, IP, and periodic group, then $G$ is finite.

The proof is based on the following theorem for which he only sketched the proof (according to Shalev):

**Theorem:** Let $L$ be a Lie algebra generated by $a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_m$. Suppose that $L$ is PI and every commutator in $a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_m$ is ad-nilpotent. Then $L$ is nilpotent.

The question whether a torsion profinite group is of finite exponent is still open as far as I know and is considerd very difficult. (Burnside type problems seem to be very difficult.)

**Edit:** Zelmanov recently published his results in:

Zelmanov, Efim; Lie algebras and torsion groups with identity, J. Comb. Algebra 1 (2017), no. 3, 289–340.

Here is the abstract:
"We prove that a finitely generated Lie algebra $L$ such that (i) every commutator in generators is ad-nilpotent, and (ii) $L$ satisfies a polynomial identity, is nilpotent. As a corollary we get that a finitely generated residually-$p$ torsion group whose pro-$p$ completion satisfies a pro-$p$ identity is finite."
