Packages for 3.8.3 are available on download.gluster.org for several
distributions. Repositories that are managed by the distributions should
see the 3.8.3 update land shortly too.

The out-of-order GlusterFS 3.8.3 release addresses a usability regression

   On occasion the Gluster projects deems an out-of-order release the
best approach to address a problem that got introduced with the last
update. The 3.8.3 version is such a release, and we advise all users to
upgrade to it, if possible skipping the 3.8.2 release. See the included
release notes for more details. We're sorry for any inconvenience

Release notes for Gluster 3.8.3

   This is a bugfix release. The Release Notes for 3.8.0, 3.8.1 and
3.8.2 contain a listing of all the new features that were added and bugs
fixed in the GlusterFS 3.8 stable release.

Out of Order release to address a severe usability regression

   Due to a major regression that was not caught and reported by any of
the testing that has been performed, this release is done outside of the
normal schedule.
   The main reason to release 3.8.3 earlier than planned is to fix bug

> On restarting GlusterD or rebooting a GlusterFS server, only the
> bricks of the first volume get started. The bricks of the remaining
> volumes are not started. This is a regression caused by a change in
> GlusterFS-3.8.2.
> This regression breaks automatic start of volumes on rebooting
> servers, and leaves the volumes inoperable. GlusterFS volumes could be
> left in an inoperable state after upgrading to 3.8.2, as upgrading
> involves restarting GlusterD.
> Users can forcefully start the remaining volumes, by doing running the
> gluster volume start <name> force command.
