Hmm, this is might help from the robustness/features perspective: :)
* 3.4.x series has been around for ages now, so is pretty battle
tested. We still release patch versions for this for important
bugs which show up.
* 3.5.x series has been around a while as well, and is also pretty
well tested by now. It has more features / and several internal
optimisations/improvements over the 3.4.x series. We release
patches for this series too for important bugs that show up.
* 3.6.x series just came out. It's our latest and greatest feature
set, but may be a bit "bleeding edge" until the next patch release
(3.6.2), which should be coming out soon.
This makes me realise we really need a version/features table on the
website, with ticks and crosses to show which version of GlusterFS
added what. :D
GlusterFS - http://www.gluster.org

petabytes, and handling thousands of clients.
