 release notes can also be found in the release-3.8 branch on GitHub]

   The Gluster releases follow a 3-month cycle and, with alternating
Short-Term-Maintenance and Long-Term-Maintenance versions. GlusterFS 3.8
is currently the oldest Long-Term-Maintenance release, and will become
End-Of-Life with the GlusterFS 3.12 version. If all goes according to
plan, 3.12 will get released in August and is the last 3.x version
before Gluster 4.0 hits the disks.

   There will be a few more releases in the GlusterFS 3.8 line, but
users should start to plan an upgrade to a version that receives regular
bugfix updates after August.
