Hi all,

Because of a update breakage in glusterfs-3.7.7 a very quick 3.7.8
release has been done to fix the issue.

The tarball and RPMs for CentOS can be found at
https://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.7/3.7.8/ .
Packages for other distros should be making it into the respective
repositories soon.

Instead of upgrading from 3.7.6 to 3.7.7, upgrade directly to 3.7.8.

The release-notes can be found at
and have been pasted below for easy reference.

And thank you Pranith for giving a quick 3.7.8 release.


# Release notes for GlusterFS-v3.7.8
GlusterFS-v3.7.8 is a quick bugfix release done to solve a bug in
3.7.7 which prevented updates from successfully happening.

Release 3.7.7 included two changes to the AFR xlator, which broke
rolling updates from pre 3.7.7 releases. The two offending patches
have been reverted in 3.7.8 until a proper fix is found. The revert
commits are

- de6e920 Revert "glusterd/afr: store afr pending xattrs as a volume option"
- d35e386 Revert "afr: warn if pending xattrs missing during init()"

- [1304889](https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1304889) - Memory leak in dht
