Gluster Monthly Newsletter, August 2017


Great news! We’ve released 3.12!


This is a major release that will be Long Term Stable.

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)
