Hi Nathan,
2.1 *is* 3.0. We are launching Gluster Storage Platform 3.0 this week. We wanted to keep
GlusterFS and storage platform version in sync. We had a lot of discussion internally
debating if we should call 2.1 or 3.0. Gluster Platform is a significant release for us
and deserves 3.0 version. Keeping version in sync will remove a lot of confusion. At least
we are not going back from v2008 to v7 ;).
