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
