Hello Developer Community,
We're pleased to announce the alpha release for GlusterFS v3.1. This
alpha release has many improvements over the pre-alpha release which was
made available a month ago.
This release extends the dynamic volume management capabilities. Dynamic
volume management allows you to add, remove, and migrate storage servers
with no downtime or machine restarts. The Gluster native NFS
implementation (which many of you may have already seen) is also
included in the build.
Again, We are particularly interested in use cases with virtual server
and cloud environments.
How can you help?
We encourage developers to participate in testing, report bugs, send
patches and give feedback on functionality. Do put Gluster to test and
expect it to crash :) albeit less frequent now :-) With that in mind,
please DO NOT use alpha in a production environment. This is intended
for QA testing purposes only, not all bugs are fixed, and the usual
caveats apply. We value your opinion and would love to hear your
feedback, good or bad, to ensure the highest quality product.
Please send your feedback to dvm-feedback at gluster.com
