The Gluster community is pleased to announce the release of Gluster 
3.11.3 (packages available at [1,2,3]).

Release notes for the release can be found at [4].

***Reminder Number One***: 3.11.3 is the last release of the 3.11 STM 
series. 3.11 will be EOL when 3.12 is released in a couple of weeks.

***Reminder Number Two***: Since GlusterFS 3.9 the Fedora RPM and Debian 
.deb public signing key is, e.g., for 3.10, at 
https://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.10/rsa.pub. If you 
have an old /etc/yum.repos/glusterfs-fedora.repo file with a link to 
https://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/LATEST/rsa.pub then 
you need to fix your .repo file to point to the correct location. This 
is a safety feature to help prevent unintended updates, e.g., from 3.10 
to 3.11.

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.

     The last known cause for corruption (Bug #1465123) has a fix with 
this release. As further testing is still in progress, the issue is 
retained as a major issue.

     Status of this bug can be tracked here, #1465123
