The glusterfs 3.12.5 got released on Jan 12th 2018. Apologies for not 
sending the announcement mail on time

Release notes for the release can be found at [4].

We still carry following major issue that is reported in the 
release-notes as follows,

1.) - Expanding a gluster volume that is sharded may cause file corruption

     Sharded volumes are typically used for VM images, if such volumes 
are expanded or possibly contracted (i.e add/remove bricks and 
rebalance) there are reports of VM images getting corrupted.

     The last known cause for corruption (Bug #1465123) has a fix with 
this release. As further testing is still in progress, the issue is 
retained as a major issue.

     Status of this bug can be tracked here, #1465123
