The glusterfs 3.12.5 got released on Jan 12th 2018. Apologies for not
sending the announcement mail on time
Release notes for the release can be found at .
We still carry following major issue 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
