The Gluster community is pleased to announce the release of Gluster 
3.11.1 (packages available at [1]).

Major changes and features (complete release notes can be found @ [2])

- Improved disperse (EC) volume performance
- Group settings for enabling negative lookup caching are provided
- Gluster fuse now implements "-oauto_unmount" feature

We still carry a major issue that is reported in the release-notes as 

- Expanding a gluster volume that is sharded may cause file corruption

     Sharded volumes are typically used for VM images, if such volumes 
are expanded or possibly contracted (i.e add/remove bricks and 
rebalance) there are reports of VM images getting corrupted.

     Status of this bug can be tracked here, #1465123
