The Gluster community is pleased to announce the release of Gluster
3.12.2 (packages available at [1,2,3]).
Release notes for the release can be found at .
We still carry following major issues that is reported in the
release-notes as follows,
1.) - 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
2 .) Gluster volume restarts fail if the sub directory export feature is
in use. Status of this issue can be tracked here, #1501315
3.) Mounting a gluster snapshot will fail, when attempting a FUSE based
mount of the snapshot. So for the current users, it is recommend to only
access snapshot via
".snaps" directory on a mounted gluster volume. Status of this issue can
be tracked here, #1501378
