This is a major Gluster release that includes, features and bug fixes. 
Notable feature highlights are,

     * Ability to mount sub-directories using the Gluster native 
protocol (FUSE)

     * Brick multiplexing enhancements that help scale to larger brick 
counts per node

     * Enhancements to gluster get-state CLI enabling better 
understanding of various bricks and nodes participation/roles in the cluster

     * Ability to resolve GFID split-brain using existing CLI

     * Easier GFID to real path mapping thus enabling diagnostics and 
correction for reported GFID issues (healing among other uses where GFID 
is the only available source for identifying a file)

The features and changes are documented in the release notes [1]. A full 
list of bugs that have been addressed is included in the release notes 
as well [1].

The packages can be downloaded from [2] and are signed with [3].

Further, as 3.11 release is a short term maintenance release, features 
included in 3.11 are available with 3.12 as well, and could be of 
interest to users upgrading to 3.12 from older than 3.11 releases. The 
3.11 release notes [2] captures the list of features that were 
introduced with 3.11.
