It is still not possible to install the 3.3 deb on a stable release of
debian because squeeze has no libssl1.0.0.

> Today, we’re announcing the next generation of GlusterFS<http://www.gluster.org/>,
> version 3.3. The release has been a year in the making and marks several
> firsts: the first post-acquisition release under Red Hat, our first major
> act as an openly-governed project <http://www.gluster.org/roadmaps/>and
> our first foray beyond NAS. We’ve also taken our first steps towards
> merging big data and unstructured data storage, giving users and developers
> new ways of managing their data scalability challenges.
> GlusterFS is an open source, fully distributed storage solution for the
> world’s ever-increasing volume of unstructured data. It is a software-only,
> highly available, scale-out, centrally managed storage pool that can be
> backed by POSIX filesystems that support extended attributes, such as
> Ext3/4, XFS, BTRFS and many more.
> This release provides many of the most commonly requested features
> including proactive self-healing, quorum enforcement, and granular locking
> for self-healing, as well as many additional bug fixes and enhancements.
> Some of the more noteworthy features include:
>    - Unified File and Object storage – Blending OpenStack’s Object
>    Storage API  <http://openstack.org/projects/storage/> with GlusterFS
>    provides simultaneous read and write access to data as files or as objects.
>    - HDFS compatibility – Gives Hadoop administrators the ability to run
>    MapReduce jobs on unstructured data on GlusterFS and access the data with
>    well-known tools and shell scripts.
>    - Proactive self-healing – GlusterFS volumes will now automatically
>    restore file integrity after a replica recovers from failure.
>    - Granular locking – Allows large files to be accessed even during
>    self-healing, a feature that is particularly important for VM images.
>    - Replication improvements – With quorum enforcement you can be
>    confident that  your data has been written in at least the configured
>    number of places before the file operation returns, allowing a
>    user-configurable adjustment to fault tolerance vs performance.
