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 [4].

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
