I installed 3.1.1 just yesterday, and so of course you had to release a new version today :)

I noticed that the Ubuntu folder on your downloads site for 3.1.2 is empty, so I used the Debian one, which I guess should be the same.

When I do:

dpkg -i glusterfs_3.1.2-1_amd64.deb

I get this:

(Reading database ... 36903 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace glusterfs 3.1.1-1 (using glusterfs_3.1.2-1_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement glusterfs ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of glusterfs:
 glusterfs depends on libibverbs1 (>= 1.1.2); however:
  Package libibverbs1 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing glusterfs (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Processing triggers for ureadahead ...

Errors were encountered while processing:

I don't have verbs because I'm running tcp over gigabit, and it evidently wasn't a requirement for 3.1.1. Is this dependency intentional? I don't mind installing the lib as a workaround, but just thought I'd flag it.
