Craig - 
The GA release date for 3.2 isn't written in stone yet, WAN replication support is still expected in 3.2.

Subject: [Gluster-users] WAN replication (EC2) 

Hi all, 

Some months ago<http://gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-users/2010-June/004920.html>I 
was asking about running GlusterFS on EC2, across availability zones. 

I read in May: 

Continuous WAN replication is scheduled for 3.2 release (Q4 of this year). 

Is this still the case? 

Our use case is that we would like to be able to replicate GlusterFS in EC2, 
across availability zones, and preferably without the resulting performance 
degradation when each node has to contact all the others to check the files. 
Basically, our specific use case - web uploads - is that read speed is most 
important, and getting an old file is not important. 

Is this likely to be addressed by the work coming in 3.2? Jeff Darcy, have 
you anything new and cool to report?
